Overview

Callahan Garrity is the owner of House Mouse, a cleaning service that tidies up after Atlanta's elite. She's also a former cop and a part-time sleuth. She and her coterie of devoted helpers can ransack a house for clues faster than it takes a fingerprint to set.

When Callahan Garrity gets caught in a liquor store holdup on the way home from a St. Paddy's Day party, one of her best friends is shot. Callahan and her House Mouse cleaning crew dive into the investigation—only to discover that her old friend might have been working both sides of the law as an accomplice in a string of robberies. It will take every trick they've got to pierce the veil of secrecy surrounding an Irish police organization and prove that the case is more than it seems.

I always enjoy Mary Kay Andrews. Often I'll give a book 70 pages to decide if I want to read it, but not with this book. I was hooked from the beginning. I had it on my cell phone for convenience. Irish Eyes is one of those books I read every where, sitting in traffic, in the Dentist, getting my car inspected ( they were way to quick!). I didn't read it in a budget meeting because I was afraid of the 'laugh out loud' factor. This was a five star read esp,if one has prior LE experience and have lost co-workers.

The story plot was good but I can do without the vulgar language. I was disappointed in that aspect of the book.

I've read several of Andrews' books, loved them all. This one has a different flavor than the others, but still good. Held my interest

Sorry to see the Callahan Garrity Mystery series end (however, I jumped ahead and have two left to read --#5 Heart Trouble and #7 Midnight Clear). Irish Eyes was suspenseful and hard to put down as it continues to build during the entire book and keeps you guessing as who all is a part of the murder ring. As usual, Kathy Hogan Trocheck (Mary Kay Andrews) truly understands the south and knows Atlanta. It is always nice to catch up with the different spots in Atlanta, and visit the array of colorful, and humorous characters with lots of twists and turns. Without giving away the ending, was expecting something different; however, was an engaging mystery full of humor and southern sass. Highly recommend as Irish Eyes and Strange Brew were my favorites in the series. Looking forward to reading the ones I have missed. A big fan of Mary Kay, will continue to buy anything she writes as she never disappoints!

Great story about good friends who don't quit looking for the answer. Intrigue, suspense, multi-tier relationships. This story challenges the reader to stay focused trying to figure out what the back story is, how the many character relationships work, and whatntue friendship is about.

Former police officer Callahan Garrity owns and operates the successful cleaning service, The House Mouse. Callahan also is a licensed private investigator, who works an occasional case.

On St. Patrick's Day, Callahan and her former police partner Bucky Deavers attend a party sponsored by the Shamrock Society, a fraternal organization of Irish-American police officers. However, Callahn finds little to entertain her and wants to leave. Bucky begrudgingly agrees to take her home. Bucky stops at a local liquor store, but an armed robber shoots him in the head before safely escaping the scene. The store clerk also vanishes.

While Bucky struggles for life in a hospital, rumors surface that he is crooked and part of a series of ATM robberies. Callahan cannot believe that her ex-partner could ever do such horrible acts. She decides to clear his name and uncover the identities of the real perpetrators even though she places herself in danger from individuals desperate enough to kill so that they can keep their identities secret.

Kathy Hogan Trochek can always be counted on to provide her audience with an absorbing and entertaining tale. IRISH EYES, the eighth Garrity Callahan novel is her best work in this strong series due to the powerful characterizations. The heroine's strength, near obsessive determination, and stubbornness feel believable yet stays within the persona of the previous seven stories. The mystery is fun and the ambiance of the South comes across throughout the tale. This original story line will leave fans anxiously anticipating Callahan's next exciting adventure. Ms. Trochek know how to keep each work in her ongoing series fresh and exciting.
