Die This Hour

by BRIAN O'HARE (Author)

A Belfast Murder Mystery (The Inspector Sheehan Mysteries Book 2)

Book Description:​

Chief Inspector Sheehan is back and ready to save Belfast from its newest serial killer.

Sheehan and his Serious Crimes Unit know that this murderer always strikes at 11:05 pm on Tuesday evenings. After two murders they also know who is being targeted as the next victim and they have him under protection. Or have they? Sheehan is shocked to the core when the killer not only succeeds in murdering his victim but also kidnaps a member of his team.

Faced with a ruthlessly clever adversary, Sheehan is left with only minutes to figure out what is going on. He must identify the killer and his motivations faster than he has ever done before or forfeit his colleague’s life.

Die This Hour was originally published by Crimson Cloak as The 11:05 Murders. It was chosen as the solo medallist winner in The New Apple Awards for Excellence.

The first thing I thought after reading this book is: Why isn’t Brian O’Hare better known in the crime world? This man is extremely talented and his books are wonderful whodunits that will keep you guessing until the end. [Joseph Sousa, Crime Writer]

Head and shoulders above most mystery authors who are published today, Brian O’Hare deserves far wider recognition. [CBT, Amazon reviewer]

Glynn Young 5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced and highly entertaining Reviewed in the United States Verified Purchase The body of a man in his early 30s is found in the man's home, the body mutilated and his throat slit. Chief Inspector Jim Sheehan of the Belfast Police leads the investigating team, and finds a number of unusual things - a broken cufflink that doesn't belong to the dead man, a watch deliberately stopped at 11:05, and a laptop with information about a young woman who committed suicide 12 years earlier. Sheehan's team includes a new detective sergeant, Denise Stevens. She's transferred to the detective unit from a police station where she experienced verbal and physical abuse from her fellow (male) police officers. She finds an entirely different atmosphere with Sheehan's team, and she brings a sharp mind and a new perspective. She also unknowingly brings a stalker. Then there's a second murder, and the list of possible suspects grows to include bankrupt property owners and a former IRA revolutionary turned thug businessman. Stevens is convinced, however, that the solution to the deaths lies in the past, and specifically around the Queens University college student who committed suicide following a brutal rape. Die This Hour is mystery writer Brian O'Hare's second Inspector Sheehan novel, and it's one that's extremely difficult to put down. It sizzles with action, suspense, and more than a few nail-biting developments as you watch Sheehan and his team move and sometimes stumble towards a solution. Die This Hour is a fast-paced, highly entertaining, and well-written mystery. It's good to know that a new entry in the Inspector Sheehan series, another novel entitled Killer of Souls will be published soon.
