Propulsive??? [Vengeance] will keep you turning pages. ???The Los Angeles Times

It's a fine day for a sail, and Victor Delahaye, one of Ireland's most successful businessmen, takes his boat far out to sea???then kills himself in front of his partner's son. This mysterious death immediately engages the attention of Detective Inspector Hackett and his sometime partner, Quirke, consultant pathologist. The stakes are high, and Hackett and Quirke must proceed with caution as they question Mona Delahaye, the dead man's young and very beautiful wife; James and Jonas Delahaye, his identical twin sons; and Jack Clancy, his ambitious, womanizing partner. When a second???and even more shocking???death occurs, it becomes clear that a terrible secret threatens to destroy the lives and reputations of Dublin's elite, in this novel from Benjamin Black.

???[Benjamin Black's] books about the dour Irish pathologist named Quirke have effortless flair, with their period-piece cinematic ambience and their sultry romance. The Black books are more like Alan Furst's elegant, doom-infused World War II spy books than like standard crime tales.??? ???Janet Maslin, The New York Times

???Readers with a literary bent who prefer stylish prose and fully-realized characters are in the right hands with Black??? Black's prose is vividly rendered, almost painterly in its detail.??? ???The Boston Globe

???Quirke is captivating--by turns dour and charming, and with an air about him that is catnip to women.??? ???Seattle Times

???There are very few writers who can write elegantly about murder, but there is no question that Benjamin Black is one of them.??? ???The Washington Times

???Propulsive??? [Vengeance] will keep you turning pages.??? ???The Los Angeles Time

???Alluring???The Black books have been lovely and luminous??? [They] remain enticing, sultry plelS)
