Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2 | [Graham Masterton]

Broken Angels: Kate Maguire Book 2

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.

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
    "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
    "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
