Rain Dogs

Rain Dogs: a Detective Sean Duffy Novel / Adrian McKinty, read by Gerard Doyle, 329 p.

The fifth in the Detective Sean Duffy series; these audiobooks, wonderfully read by Gerard Doyle, have been my car companions for months now.

In this title:

As in #3 in this series, In the Morning I'll Be Gone, Detective Sean Duffy is presented with a locked-room mystery.  A woman has been found dead in the courtyard of the local castle, and there's no apparent way the killer could have escaped unseen.  On the plus side, Sean's personal life is about to take a very interesting turn...

In all Detective Sean Duffy novels:

checking under the BMW for mercury tilt bombs
a fabulous supporting cast, including Sergeant McCrabben (Crabby), Duffy's dour Presbyterian sidekick, and attractive neighbor Mrs.Campbell, perpetually horny because her husband is either away or depressed
an encyclopedic display of musical knowledge
a shocking amount of alcohol consumption, even for Ireland
hilarious dialogue
a terrific sense of place
