Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
John Brady deftly weaves a tale of espionage, political intrigue and detective work set against the background of Ireland's pre-Peace Accord troubles in Unholy Ground, a reissue of the second Matt Minogue mystery, in which the Dublin inspector investigates the murder of a retired British customs agent. When the canny hero determines that the dead man was actually a spy, a world of intrigue opens up the Brits are just as eager to conceal his activities as Minogue is to find his killer in this complex and gracefully written street-level procedural.
