Announcing A New Gritty Crime Novel Set In Ireland 'the Confessional Killings'
D.R. Bailey's new novel sets a controversial tone on church abuse
Bailey has written a humorous but hard-hitting account of the ensuing investigation which reveals many twists and turns and might be seen as exposing the underbelly of the Church. Bailey nevertheless, does not shy away from highly topical subjects such as church abuse. This well-paced mystery will engage readers until the end. Bailey doesn't subscribe to the usual tropes found in detective novels and many of his characters are well founded and easy to identify with.
One recent five-star reviewer wrote
"So, I'm a bit of a crime-reader snob... I sharpened my teeth on Conan-Doyle, Christie, Ellis Peters et al. as a teen and moved into many more of the good and the great as I grew and expanded my readership - so I rather unapologetically demand a lot from new sources. Boy, this does not disappoint. I honestly think you can gauge a writer's genuine fondness for his characters when you move through their stories - it's a depth that is intrinsic rather than forced or overthought and I really feel that here. Aside from a cracking story, you become engaged by the protagonists and just want to know more about them."
