The Girl from Kilkenny

The Girl from Kilkenny

Author(s): Pete Brassett

Location(s): Kilkenny

Genre(s): Crime

Era(s): Present day

Detectives in a sleepy Irish town are baffled by a string of murders and a missing girl

Who was Nancy McBride and where did she disappear to?

The cold-blooded murder of an American tourist in his hotel room has Detectives Hanagan and Molloy looking for a killer and a motive. But when the clues begin to point to the unimaginable, a story of loss, betrayal, and vengeance begins to unfold.

If you like psychological suspense fiction with a twist THE GIRL FROM KILKENNY is for you. It has a totally unexpected ending, and written in a fresh and amusing style. With Irish wit aplenty, it is impossible to put this gripping suspense down.

Pete Brassett is the author of several works of fiction, all of which are available on Kindle. Readers who enjoy a conventional murder mystery with a twist should check out the seven-books series beginning with SHE, featuring Scottish Detective Inspector Munro and DS Charlie West. Or read more Irish fiction in PRAYER FOR THE DYING.

THE GIRL FROM KILKENNY is available FREE with Kindle unlimited and in paperback.
