Review by

Another excellent story about the QuicK Investigations agency in Dublin, with authentic-sounding characters, locations and an interestingly different plot-line. A young girl turns up after 26 years missing, presume drowned and shoots a respectable Dublin GP and turns the gun on herself. Her brother hires QuicK to find out where she's been and what has happened to her. Excellent humorous dialogue, but be warned some of the violence is quite graphic and the language at times ripe, although authentic in the context of the character.
