At the yacht club where Ovens was discovered unconscious, both Bill Martin, the ancient and seemingly harmless boat boy, and Horace Hubbard, the plump steward, claim that Ovens' injury came about accidentally. But when evidence comes to light that a lovely woman might be involved, McGarr suspects that the facts don't add up to a simple boating accident. Once Ovens regains consciousness and refuses to reveal the guilty party, McGarr's suspicions are confirmed.
With his wife, Noreen, who advises him on every aspect of his job, McGarr combs the coast of Ireland and the misty streets of Dublin to uncover the identity of Ovens' assailant. It is then he discovers that more than straight police work is involved. . . A treacherous political trap is being set for him. "; Ex-Library; 6" - 7" Tall

"A priest approaches Chief Superintendent Peter McGarr to report and to make a bizarre request: Could McGarr have the death officially listed as an accident and then pursue the investigation in secret? The answer, of course, is no. Perhaps McGarr would have been wiser to have accepted Father Duggan's offer of covert aid, since McGarr's official investigation is being oddly opposed at every turn. Yet the deeper McGarr digs, the closer he is drawn to a secret order of religious zealots called Opus Dei, a group devoted to enforcing the Lord's edicts no matter what the cost in money. . . or human life."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
