Publisher's Summary

In the middle of Cork, in the middle of the day, a fire crackles in a local dance studio. Thirteen women, all promising stars of Irish folk, die in the blaze, their young lives cut short by a tragic accident. But where others see tragedy, DCI Katie Maguire sees murder.

This is not the first fire to sweep through Cork. And in one previous case, the victims were dead before the fire was started. As Katie Maguire investigates the strange, obsessive world of competitive Irish folk dancing, she must face her most chilling killer yet.

    Story
    "I don't like cliff hangers"

    Unfortunately, this book ended with a cliffhanger, and I don't like cliffhangers. Overall a good police procedural. I recommend starting with the first book in the series.

    Story
    "My last Masterton book review."


    When a writer uses rape as titillating entertainment, a line is crossed where the merits of any story become snared or soiled in by the act described in such a detail, making the rest of the story banal and sordid. This is the problem with this particular book, it is not a matter of morality, just not entertaining or valid to expand on the plot or build a better character.

    Not for me, degradation of people and animals is not entertaining or something I want to spend time reading.

    Story
    "Dancing with the devil...."

    As ever, a hugely engrossing story.... no spoilers but not the ending I hoped for....

    I also think the case was 'closed' anticlimactically....

    But there was enough in every chapter that left me wanting more.

    Grahams knowledge- or appreciation, at least - of 'carnal pleasures' is probably more vividly portrayed in this story than any other.

    My only annoyance was the narrator, sometimes making standard commentary when not in character very laboured.

    I've waited a long time for DGD to appear in Audible and it was definitely worth the wait.
