Description of this Book

They say politics is cut-throat, but nothing rocks the boat more than a personal vendetta. Late at night, two powerful men meet in a secret location to discuss a long nurtured plan about to come to fruition. One is desperate to know there is nothing standing in their way--the other assures him everything is taken care of. Hours later, high-ranking government official Ryan Finnegan is brutally slain in the most secure building in Ireland--seat of parliament Leinster House. Inspector Tom Reynolds and his team are called in to uncover the truth behind the murder. At first, all the evidence hints at a politically motivated crime, until a surprise discovery takes the investigation in a dramatically different direction. Suddenly the motive for murder becomes a lot more personal...but who benefits the most from Ryan's death?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for the With Our Blessing Absolutely my comfort reading. --Ann Cleeves, Dagger Award-winning author of Vera & the Shetland series The novel is razor-sharp...The denouement is fiendishly clever, a climax in the old-fashioned Agatha Christie-esque sense...a big fat twist is lobbed into the ending like a hand grenade. --Sunday Independent Brilliant! Fast paced, well researched and sensitive. Jo Spain is a sparking new talent. --Irish Examiner In a very strong year for Irish crime-fiction debuts, Jo Spain's With Our Blessing is among the most assured...[and] picks at the scabs of recent Irish history to reveal raw and gaping wounds. --Declan Burke Irish Times Jo Spain writes as good a procedural as you are ever likely to read. --Crime Review (UK)
