Publisher's Summary

His name is the Priest. His weapon is a crucifix. His victims don’t have a prayer. A killer is stalking the dark streets of Dublin. Before each attack, he makes the sign of the cross; then he sends his victims to God.After a foreign politican’s daughter is brutally assaulted and left for dead, her body branded with burns from a blazing cross, the case falls to Detective Inspector Mike Mulcahy. Mulcahy is one tough cop, but this crime is beyond comprehension - and The Priest is a nemesis more evil and elusive than any Mulcahy has ever faced: an angel of death with a soul dark as hell.

As a media frenzy erupts and the city reels in terror, Mulcahy teams up with ambitious journalist Siobhan Fallon in a desperate bid to stop The Priest in his tracks before he can complete his divine mission of murder.

liked it but had reservations

I liked the story but somehow the main character came across as an old lumbering out dated plod...... and the reporter was a bit farcical.... however having said that it was an easy listen on long car journeys.

Cracking start.

I couldn't believe that this was the author's first novel! It is far more accomplished than many books by best-selling fiction writers and if he carries on like this he will become one of them! I've given it 4 stars rather than 5 because he did get a little lost in the middle of the book, the narrative lost a little bit of focus. Also, some of the diaglogue between the two main characters got a little sticky at times. But those are small matters compared to a very satisfying murder story with a solid ending.
