Moira Kelley enjoys her New York City lifestyle. She and her partner Josh co-produce a travel show for cable. Moira is also dating Michael McLean, whom she believes is the ideal man for her. After pressure from her mom to come home for St. Patrick's Day, Moira brings her show to her father¿s Boston pub for the Irish holiday. However, the atmosphere in the pub contains an aura of secretiveness as whispers that her dad¿s place hosts terrorists abound. Inquisitive, Moira begins to make inquiries, but someone tries to frighten her away from learning the truth about a thirst for revenge from a 1977 Ireland incident. Soon a long time customer mysteriously dies. Though scared, she wonders if the culprit is a family member, Michael, or the man she always loved and sadly still does, Danny O¿Hara. NIGHT OF THE BLACKBIRD is an exciting romantic suspense novel even if it is too easy for Moira to switch her show¿s location to placate her mom. The pub¿s highly charged atmosphere gains control of the reader¿s mind so that the audience will feel they are having a dark beer along with the regulars. In spite of feeling that one is at the pub, fans will not know the identity of the traitor until the end because a myriad of viable suspects exist. Adding depth is Moira¿s struggles with being a second generation Irish-American as pressure from her heritage often battles with her assimilation into America. Though anything smacking of terrorism is difficult to swallow now, Heather Graham provides a robust tale that will please most sub-genre fans. Harriet Klausner
