Border Angels by Anthony J. Quinn
  

Lovereading view...

Tension and foreboding seem to ooze from every page of this beautifully written thriller. Set mostly in the Irish border country, it displays a dark, bleak area of poverty and despair. Centring on the trafficking of Eastern European young women, one of whom is found to be involved in the suspicious death of a successful Irish businessman, this thought-provoking tale brings in all aspects of this no-man’s land. With vivid characterisation and beautiful descriptive writing, this is a compelling read.

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Authors tend to like to have their egos stroked, and Anthony Quinn has been enjoying such attention more than most for his remarkably well-written novels. In Border Angels, a charred corpse and a set of footprints in the snow direct Quinn’s protagonist Inspector Celcius Daly into the dark world of people trafficking. Daly is on the trail of a missing woman, Lena Novak, who has disappeared one winter’s night along the Irish border leaving behind only the bodies of two men. Soon, Daly finds himself working with a prostitute and a hit man in an increasingly dangerous chase – one that leads to a refuge for people who do not want to be found. Like many writers resident in Ireland, Anthony Quinn is influenced by the great American crime writers – and Border Angels shows that he clearly belongs in their august company.

Synopsis

Border Angels by Anthony J. Quinn

A charred corpse and a set of footprints in the snow lead Celcius Daly into the twilight world of people trafficking. Inspector Celcius Daly is hunting for a missing woman who disappeared one winter's night along the Irish border, leaving in her wake the corpses of two men. Soon Daly is involved in a life-or-death chase, leading him deep into border country: a wild terrain of disappearing lanes and blown-up bridges, abandoned ghost-estates and thick forests - the ultimate refuge for anyone who does not want to be found.
