From Barnes & NobleBartholomew Gill's The Death of an Irish Tinker is billed as the latest in the series starring Dublin police detective Peter McGarr, but it's more about a woman named Biddy Nevins, who knows rather too much about a particularly grisly murder. A tinker -- one of Ireland's traditional nomads -- Biddy is on the run from "the Toddler," a Dublin drug dealer and killer, who is himself a longtime target of McGarr's. To find the Toddler, McGarr must find Biddy. But the novel is more than just a suspenseful chase as Gill explores the hidden world of the tinkers.
