About The Book

Decisions can change a life… or take it.
Conor Doyle is a haunted man. In the winter of 1988, he returns from London to his old home town in Western Ireland, hoping to find a reason to stay. What he thought would be a joyful reunion becomes something more, as he’s drawn into the fallout surrounding a shocking crime.
While the Irish Garda are looking for the prime suspect, Conor’s relationships are tested with jealousy and betrayal, and he must look deep inside himself to make the decision that will change his life forever.


My Thoughts

It’s not difficult to fall for a story when you live around the places that you describe, don’t you think?
This story is based on the winter of 1988, and Conor Doyle returns home and instead of finding the peace he was looking for, he will have to investigate a murder!
This is a mystery book, yes, but what really moves the story is the scenery and the characters; the little town villagers’ secrets and lies. I don’t think all crime books have to be full of action, sometimes, a slow paced mood makes you focus more on details and maybe something that you would not pay attention to in any other way. That’s possibly why I liked this book, it’s not a twisted story, but the personal stories of the main characters.
If you want to travel to Ireland’s past with a paced story, believe me, you should take a chance on this one!Are you ready for “The Whole of the Moon”?
