McGarr and the Politician's Wife review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Chief Inspector of Detectives Peter McGarr is the hard nosed policeman of Bartholomew Gill's widely acclaimed series of atmospheric Irish mysteries Now here is the novel that started it all the Chief Inspector's very first appearance It was twilight on Killiney Bay when they pulled the Yank out of the water his head split open by a. Although Death of an Irish Politician is supposed to be the first case featuring Peter McGarr in Bartholomew Gill s series of mysteries Death of an Irish Sea Wolf Death of an Irish Lover and Death of a Joyce Scholar guess Irish would have been redundant in that last one This is one of those series where I ve discovered the books piecemeal and had the joy of discovering the characters from cross cuts at various points in their lives In Death of an Irish Politician we see McGarr and his lovely wife Noreen and he experiences the transition from international police work Interpol and tries to establish a reputation and home in Dublin His past is a double edged sword On the positive side of the spectrum he is considered a famous detective On the negative side of the spectrum he isn t part of the old boy network On the negative side of the spectrum he is tainted with his sympathy for the Irish Republican Army on the positive side he has lots of contacts in the IRA that provide timely information at various times In short Gill presents McGarr as something of a microcosm of Ireland itself resentful of Cromwell s ancient oppression longing for authentic freedom and living under suspicion no matter what is doneThe ambivalent position of McGarr plays a pivotal role in Death of an Irish Politician because a portion of the plot turns on the IRA connection and through much of the book suspicion rests on McGarr It s the classic example of the detective having to clear himself in order to solve the mystery yet it has a interesting feel as one senses that McGarr is functioning within webs contrived from than one direction Indeed the conspiracy against McGarr enables Gill to sprinkle red herrings from several directions with regard to the central murder investigation because one doesn t know whether the evidence which pops up is germane to the murder investigation the conspiracy against McGarr or both Although most of the story takes place in a suburb of Dublin proper one does get a guided tour of the Castle I only saw this remnant of oppression from the outside when I was there and even then I mentally asked the uestion that Gill implies in the book why would the police assume this symbol of foreign oppression as their headuarters for keeping the peace At the time I hoped that the Castle had become a symbol of transition and the power of the Irish people to adapt with changing times Yet I get no such optimism from Gill s perspective We also get a glimpse of Trinity College during the investigation a penthouse view of St Stephen s Green and can practically smell the sea as Gill takes us to Dun Laoghaire harbor Perhaps the sights of Dublin are not as prolific as in the funeral procession in Ulysses but they are certainly recognizable alas Davy Byrnes Pub doesn t make an appearance in this story Death of an Irish Politician contains both literal and figurative deaths It offers a conflicted view of modern Ireland written before the current relative peace and a complex view of the troubles This is one of several books I ve read this year that at least have the troubles as a back drop Some people might think the use of the troubles to be a conceit or macguffin as opposed to a challenging and thoughtful consideration I believe Gill presents a balanced view of sympathy for a united Ireland and horror over the atrocities committed in the name of that grand goal Of course it s hard for someone outside the conflict to judge but I thought Gill did a wonderful job of using that fact of life well Death of an Irish Politician has some intriguing puzzles and enough procedural narrative to give one a sense of solving the case but I m not certain the mystery itself is strong enough to hold the reader s interest without some understanding of the Irish situation or a desire to care about the cast of characters Gill started to assemble in this volume It isn t too weak for my taste but if one doesn t care about the setting it might be too timid for the average mystery aficionado The Vault Guide to the Case Interview redundant in that last one This is one of those series where I ve discovered the books
