The Well of Ice


I received a copy of this title from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.

I had already read the first in this series and was on the lookout for more by Andrea Carter as I did enjoy the world of the Inishowen Mysteries.  This is the third in the series and Ben’s legal practice in the town seems well established and her relationship with the Sergeant, Molloy is at least on somewhat solid ground.  The town and Ben are shaken by a series of acts, the pub burns to the ground, a barmaid and mother disappears, and the man who is responsible for Ben’s sister’s death is released from prison.  The story includes several of the members of the community and connections to the past as it unfolds.

A definite sense of menace and foreboding is developed  in the story along with feelings of isolation due to both  weather and location.  An intriguing mystery with a well developed sense of place.   I would definitely read another in this series.
