Vengeance

(2012)
(The fifth book in the Quirke series)
A novel by

 
A bizarre suicide leads to a scandal and then still more blood, as one of our most brilliant crime novelists reveals a world where money and sex trump everything

It's a fine day for a sail, and Victor de Courcy, one of Ireland's most successful businessmen, takes his boat far out to sea. With him is his partner's son - who becomes the sole witness when de Courcy produces a pistol, points it at his own chest, and fires.

This mysterious death immediately engages the attention of Detective Inspector Hackett, who in turn calls upon the services of his sometime partner Quirke, consultant pathologist at the Hospital of the Holy Family. The stakes are high: de Courcy's prominence in business circles means that Hackett and Quirke must proceed very carefully. Among others, they interview Mona de Courcy, the dead man's young and very beautiful wife; James and Jonas de Courcy, his identical twin sons; and Jack Clancy, his ambitious, womanizing partner. But then a second death occurs, this one even more shocking than the first, and quickly it becomes apparent that a terrible secret threatens to destroy the lives and reputations of several members of Dublin's elite.

Why did Victor de Courcy kill himself, and who is intent upon wreaking vengeance on so many of those who knew him?
