Publisher's Summary

In a nursing home on the outskirts of Cork, an elderly nun lies dead. She has been suffocated. It looks like a mercy killing - until another sister from the same convent is found viciously murdered, floating in the Glashaboy river.

Why would anyone want to kill them? As she investigates, DS Katie Maguire discovers a 50-year-old secret that just might lead her to the killer...if the killer doesn't find her first.

    "Rough ride"

    I used to read Graham Masterton as a teenager in the 90s and came across this title in a recent sale. Couldn't leave it alone even at work! I'm a bit off police series at the moment but the characters are very sympathetic and likeable and I'll certainly be looking out for the other Katie McGuire stories. I hope they're read by the same narrator as she has the perfect soft Irish accent for the main character and did a good range of voices for the rest. If you're squeamish you may want to skip certain parts, skipping to the end of the chapter in the unpleasant bits won't affect the rest of the story and the next chapter will continue elsewhere in the story so you won't be shocked by what you skip to.

    "Mystery and suspense that’s gripping & intriguing."
    Any additional comments?

    Having loved all the other Katie Maguire books I was really looking forward to listening to this one and was not disappointed. I see some people have passed comments on the narration. At first I admit I too wasn’t sure about Noreen Leighton’s narration, so I went back and listened to some of the previous Katie Maguire books. Having done that, I concluded the narration was pretty good. I can’t comment on the quality of the Irish accents but the narration was more than acceptable for me. You don’t need to have listened to any of the previous Katie Maguire books as any links to previous books are covered. Once again, it’s a gripping thriller though certainly not for the faint hearted, as the crimes are rather graphic. Katie is gutsy Irish Detective Superintendent, with a personal life which is always quite interesting and sometimes as graphic as the murders that she investigates. If you are easily offended then this is probably not for you, but if you have listened to any of the other Katie books you will no what to expect, it doesn’t disappoint, another great story that will certainly keep you wondering what will happen next. Loved it.

    Story
    "BLOOD SISTERS - Bloody Marvellous..."
    Would you listen to Blood Sisters again? Why?

    Yes - it grabbed me from the very first chapter


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Sisters?

    The hidden cupboard...


    Which character – as performed by Noreen Leighton – was your favourite?

    Katie - very believable


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    My fifth Katie McGuire listen... And my favourite; superbly narrated - I don't understand how anyone could criticise Noreen Leighton!

    Gritty, grissly - the genius invention of Mr Masterton...

    My only disappointment - it came to an end.

    Superb - but not for the faint hearted!

    Story
    "They will pay for their sins"

    Katie Maguire is running into more interference from her office and her sexual ambivalence seems to take a new turn and adds to her problems, meanwhile nuns are being murder in the most horrendous ways, or should I say in the most religious ways.

    The investigation takes her into the recent religious past of her country and the bodies begin to accumulate, spatially those of children under the care of the church.

    A good story that resolves some of the previous history and opens some new questions, some terribly gruesome murders are committed to nuns and some terrible crimes are remembered.

    Overall a good read that could do with a toning down on the torture fest.

    Story
    "Hard to cope with perhaps because I'm Irish"

    The other two books by this author were so enjoyable for me. The books are written about Irish officers and people of county Cork in Southern Ireland, and the narrator was Irish who was a good actress but also great with accents.
    The narrator of blood sisters however is English and her Irish accent was ok at times, but so bad at times that some of the characters sounded like they had mental impairment or speech impediments. It was so distracting from the story, and as an Irish listener, very irritating.
    I just wish Caroline Lennon could have narrated this book also.
    Despite this, great plot and suspense through, I love Graham Mastersons books.

    "Returned due to horrible violence"

    I have had to return this book, shame because the story could have been really good. I just can't understand why any writer would want to write such appalling things...torture at its worst. I will never read another book by this author.
    Disappointed.
