A Texas transplant can’t stop tripping over bodies in Ireland.
Megan Malone’s grandfather was Irish, and she retired from Austin to Dublin after 20 years in the U.S. Army. As a driver for the Leprechaun Limousine Service, she’s on assignment with PGA champion Martin Walsh at the Royal Dublin Golf Club when he invites her to watch him play a casual game of golf. That’s when she and Walsh find his best friend and longtime competitor, Lou MacDonald, floating in the pond at the 15th hole. Trained as a medic, Megan splashes into the water to try to save MacDonald, but she’s too late, and the blood on his head makes her realize he didn’t accidentally drown. She calls Detective Paul Bourke, who worked with her in Dead in Dublin (2019). Walsh thinks the blow on the back of MacDonald’s head could have come from a hard-hit golf ball. But he doesn’t know who’d want to kill Lou, a big, gentle man everyone liked. Walsh’s wife, Heather, another pro golfer, takes Lou’s death hard. Lou’s daughter, Saoirse, feels incapable of arranging a wake and a funeral while she’s trying to stop a developer from building on the same island as the golf club. So Megan steps in to help her. The more Megan learns, the less ideal the Walshes’ marriage seems and the more Megan understands Saoirse’s resentment toward them both. And the more Megan entangles herself—even finding another body at the Royal Dublin—the greater her own hazard.
Cleverly blends rivalries on and off the golf course with colorful characters as a plucky limo driver takes the wheel again.
