That One May Smile: A Garda West Novel (Garda West Crime Novels Book 1)

by Valerie Keogh  

‘A cast of intriguing characters and a mystery that will keep you guessing until the final page,’ Amazon review.

‘A great thriller with a lot of twists and turns that kept me gripped and sitting on the edge,’ Amazon review.

Detective Garda Sergeant Mike West is called to investigate a murder in a local Foxrock graveyard. Suspicion immediately falls on a local woman, Kelly Johnson, whose husband disappeared some months before.

And then she disappears.

Evidence leads West to the small village of Come to Good, Cornwall, but when he checks in to a local Inn, he finds Kelly has arrived before him. Her explanation seems to make sense but just when West thinks his suspicions are unfounded, she disappears again.

Is she guilty? West, fighting an unsuitable attraction, doesn’t want to believe it. But the evidence against her is mounting.

Back in Dublin, his team uncover evidence of blackmail and illegal drugs involving Kelly’s missing husband. When another man is murdered, she, once again, comes under suspicion.

Finally, the case is untangled, but is it the outcome West really wants?

‘I hope you’ve got room for one more crime series as this book is the perfect summer read, a solid mystery with some great characters,’ Keeper of Pages.
