Crocodile Tears is a very nicely written police procedural that has a strong blend of unpicking the mystery surrounding the death of Dermot Brennan capturing the aftermath of the property crash in Ireland and charting the interactions and tension between the cops and with the suspects O Sullivan creates vivid characterisation particularly with respect to the guards and rather than concentrating on a single cop traces a handful from junior to senior rank each well penned with a decent back story The dialogue and interactions are first rate In particular I thought the first interrogation with Sean Doran a resident on one of Brennan s ghost estates was excellent all lies threats feints and violence waiting to explode For the most part the plot worked well though I felt it became a little derailed towards the end as it veered towards a fanciful ending Overall a very promising start to what I assume and hope is going to be a series and highly recommended The Color of Night the Irish recession in full flow property What Preachers Never Tell You About Tithes & Offerings tycoon Dermot Brennan is found dead at his Dublin home Leading Pulse (Frank Quinn, the murder investigation is fifty six year old Detective Inspector Leo Woods an embittered former UN peacekeeper with a drug habit a penchant for collecting masks and a face disfigured by Bell's Palsy DI Woods meets his match in Detective Sergeant Helen Troy a bright and.

Ambitious but impetuous young policewoman with a troubled familyA host of suspects uickly emerge Brennan's estranged son; two of the dead man's former business associates with grudges against him; a young man whose life was ruined after his house built by Brennan was flooded; an arrogant sculptor who may or may not have been having an affair with Anna Brennan and with their neighbour; and an ex pat American ga. I was incredibly impressed with this inaugural crime offering from Mark O Sullivan perhaps better known as a children s fiction writer and author of Enright a fiction novel and aside from a couple of breaks for coffee this was pretty much one of those read in one sitting books Veering towards literary crime fiction O Sullivan s creation DI Leo Woods is an absolute gem of a character Afflicted by a condition known as Bell s Palsy Woods is both self deprecating and a shrewd judge of human nature accrued through his study of people s reactions to this perplexing condition I know crime authors always strive to imbue their detectives with an original uirk to their character and yes I did raise an eyebrow at this one but it works magnificently well in the make up of Woods moral and physical character Woods is also imbued with a positively Ken Bruen esue wit that had me chortling out loud throughout the book helping to relieve the perfectly wrought tension of the central murder investigation a murder investigation that is well played out and convincing within the narrative Woods is a truly multi layered character not only shaped by his physical condition but also by previous events from his service in the Balkans and what he witnessed there and a real strength of the book is watching the interplay with him and his colleagues along with those he investigates An exceptionally good crime novel all round and I am very much looking forward to encountering DI Woods again
