"Chief Inspector Peter McGarr has been called out from Dublin to investigate a troubling double homicide. The nude body of young, pretty, and recently married Eel Policewoman Ellen Gilday Finn has been discovered in the bed of a hot-sheet inn-wrapped around the equally unclothed corpse of her much older boss, Pascal Burke. A crime of passion, perhaps, pointing to Ellen's cuckolded newly wedded husband as the perpetrator. But conflicting clues and false confessions are leading McGarr into dangerous hidden corners where greed, corruption, IRA terror and radical, possibly deadly, environmentalism are but a few of the dark blooms secretly nourished in the rich loam of the Irish countryside."; 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall
