9780062417336: The Nameless Dead: An Inspector Devlin Thriller (Inspector Devlin Thrillers)

‘You can’t investigate the baby, Inspector. It’s the law.’

Declan Cleary’s body has never been found, but everyone believes he was killed for informing on a friend over thirty years ago. Now the Commission for Location of Victims’ Remains is following a tip-off that he was buried on the small isle of Islandmore, in the middle of the River Foyle.

Instead, the dig uncovers a baby’s skeleton, and it doesn’t look like death by natural causes. But evidence revealed by the Commission’s activities cannot lead to prosecution. Inspector Devlin is torn. He has no desire to resurrect the violent divisions of the recent past. Neither can he let a suspected murderer go unpunished.

Now the secret is out, more deaths follow. Devlin must follow his conscience – even when that puts those closest to him at terrible risk . . .

Product Description:

The small isle of Islandmore was once an avenue for smugglers and a burial place for unbaptized babies.

When a cold case leads Inspector Devlin to the desolate island in an attempt to locate the bodies of a group of people who have been presumed dead for over thirty years, he uncovers a horrifying secret: the body of a baby who appears to have been murdered. Every fiber of the inspector's being tells him he should find justice for this child, but he is prohibited from investigating further.

Devlin is torn. He has no desire to dredge up painful events of the past, but neither can he let a murderer go unpunished. Devlin must follow his conscience--even when it puts those closest to him at risk.

Review:

'In The Nameless Dead, Brian McGilloway weaves a moving, beautifully written story of lost parental hopes and the still angry wounds of political strife.' --The Times, Marcel Berlins

'Northern Ireland s bloody history adds gritty reality to the fifth in the popular series featuring the all-too-human Inspector Devlin.'
--Peterborough Evening Telegraph

'McGilloway s elegant, almost elegiac, writing and his humane, sensitive Garda detective raise The Nameless Dead from a gloomy reflection on Northern Ireland s past to a poignant, perfectly-pitched crime story which counterbalances fictional drama with factual history...Respectable, compassionate and doggedly determined in the face of obstructive senior officers, the maverick Devlin always steers a moral course in his pursuit of fairness, justice and the truth.' --Lancashire Evening Post

'In a story of crime, love and mystery, Devlin trusts his instincts to find out the truth after more deaths follow, even when it puts those who he loves most at risk.'
Lifestyle North East --Lifestyle North East

'Told with McGilloway s customary quiet authority, The Nameless Dead fully deserves its Rankinsesque title, confirming the author s reputation as a thoughtful, intelligent crime novelist... The Nameless Dead is as good a novel of modern Ireland as you re likely to read this year, crime or otherwise.' --Irish Times
