Publisher's Summary

One cold spring morning in County Cork, two fishermen find a bundle of rags floating in the Blackwater River. It is the bloated body of Father Heaney. His hands and feet are bound, and his neck bears the marks of garrotting wire. Worse still, he has been castrated.

When a second priest is found murdered, his body bruised and beaten and the same savage wound hidden beneath his soutane, Detective Inspector Katie Maguire finds evidence of a sinister cover-up at St Joseph's Orphanage. But the Catholic diocese still wields considerable power here, and the Garda are under pressure to close the case.

Katie has to work alone if she is to catch the killer in time - but first she must shatter a wall of silence that for decades has hidden a terrible secret. A secret that is beyond belief...

    Story
    "Porn and violence again!."
    What would have made Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 better?

    TONE DOWN the torture scenes and the sexual scenes, I don't need to share the feelings of a a vulnerable young woman being slowly and horribly tortured in minute detail. The sexual scenes are almost clinical certainly NOT sensual or romantic


    What other book might you compare Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 to and why?

    I would have to look under the S and M category.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lennon – was your favorite?

    Kate Magiore


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It is well written with clearly defined characters. Good background and without the S&M
    a good book.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought the first book in this series and was so impressed by the strong writing and characters that I bought the second "Broken Angels" I did this in the belief that such a good author would not make the same mistakes twice. I was wrong.

    I am returning the second one, first bad choice was mine, the second bad choice is Audible's

    Story
    "I thought this book was excellent!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 to be better than the print version?

    This story is gripping and very timely. I truly enjoyed listening. Narrator did an excellent job.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Interesting to consider that this or something similar may have happened to impoverished orphans in institutions years ago, well, not that long ago.
    Stories about the Catholic clergy, the secrecy, the cover-ups, are very timely.
    The fact that it takes place in Ireland, where so many are Catholic, was very interesting and made it more believable.


    What does Caroline Lennon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Narrator did a credible job of both Irish and American accents.

    My reviews are rather simple but only because I want to convey my impressions of a story. I leave summaries to the publisher. LOVE Audible!

    This series is fantastic. I have enjoyed listening to the first two novels and am anxiously awaiting the third. Caroline Lennon is my favourite female narrator by far.

    "Creepy Imagination that makes it hard to put down!"

    Kate Maquire continues her story in this book and its great to travel with her as she solves another confounding mystery. Graham Masterons imagination is definately gory and most definately in parts gross but at the same time I wanted to know what and who were behind those masks. The effort that he puts into every death is truly amazing and horrifying and the next death worse than the last it can make the jaw drop in horror!

    Story
    "What they took could not be returned."


    The Catholic church is the next victim come victimizer in this story. The church has exposed itself to these fictional treatment by having concealed, lied and protected the guilty, and now are an easy target, for the worst kind of fictional retribution; again the emphasis is on truly explicit scenes that are presented in detail, nothing is suggested, you get the full on gore and on the other hand you are also given explisit sessuality with exquisite clinical detailed that if not titillating is at least very descriptive.

    So if you are easily offended I would not enter Masterton territory, he is very good at setting up a stories within stories and creating likeable characters to follow and nasty ones to move and link the plot, there is some stretching of credulity but it is forgivable because in the end it keeps you interested.

    Not for everyone but very good R rated entertainment that keeps you interested with a very good heroine.

    Caroline Lennon is a fantastic reader, she acts every scene and her accents are such a complement to the story, she has made this books come alive and nearly impossible to stop listening.

    Story
    "Gripping and Gruesome"
    What made the experience of listening to Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 the most enjoyable?

    Great narration, and a storyline that kept me gripped to the end.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2?

    Unfortunately I think it will be the graphically described torture that will stay with me, although it was the likeable characters and sense of humour that made the book so enjoyable.


    What does Caroline Lennon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Her Irish accent.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    A good listen. Some of the gruesome bits were a little too grisly for my taste.

    Story
    "Too near the Truth"
    If you could sum up Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 in three words, what would they be?

    So very real


    What other book might you compare Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 to, and why?

    Kate Maguire Book 1. This is a fascinating seriesand one feels one is there


    Have you listened to any of Caroline Lennon’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No. Her performance was excellent and her ability to separate the charaters was great.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The last few words


    Any additional comments?

    At times I thought I must have strayed into an Edgar Alan Poe story- it was so terrifying but one had to listen all the way through. It is so topical and one finds that one believes it has happened in real life
