"It's only words, and words are all I have, to take your heart away." —Bee Gees
Despite a few things I was quite absorbed in this Irish police procedural. The main detective Rob Ryan is what one might call a flawed character, so flawed that he sometimes makes me roll my eyes in frustration. I wished some of the developments in the plot didn't have to happen.
And yet I was still emotionally invested in the story and these characters and was rooting for them. The writing is very good, although I could guess parts of one of the mysteries about midway through.
