A priest, an ex-cop, and three badass babes walk into a bar … Lucky for readers, that’s a great opportunity for the kind of rare mystery series with something for everyone—a tough guy, three awesome women, and a classic Golden Age gentleman-detective clergyman. The twist? The cop and the cleric are half-brothers who operate a PI firm out of their bar. Owen Parr pulls off a crowd-pleasing coup in the first entry in his Joey Mancuso/Father Dominic O’Brian series—a perfect blending of the hard-boiled and intellectual schools of detecting. Joey’s the ex-cop, who got kicked out of the police department by means of a small frame, and the women are a fiery FBI agent (Joey’s elusive Cuban girl friend), a glamorous “researcher,” and perhaps most memorable of all, Joey’s mentor and ex-partner, Lucifer—officially Lucy, but what a nickname! Captain O’Brian’s Pub and Cigar Bar, with its old-world New York warmth and reliably friendly Irish bartender is a character in itself, the kind of place that’s like home to its devotees. So when one of the brothers’ best customers dies in an apparent suicide—a Wall Street guy celebrating a new client the night before—they’re just not feeling it. They know he wasn’t a guy who wanted to die; and they quickly find out he was someone a lot of people wanted dead. It’s a made-to-order financial puzzle for a couple of seasoned New York PI’s, with the kind of twists and scams and puzzles that warm a mystery fan’s heart like a shot of Jameson. Fans of New York detective shows from Blue Bloods to Elementary will find it right up their alley, and devotees of Golden Age mysteries will love it, especially those set in New York, like Ellery Queen and Nero Wolfe; and those starring brainy clergymen, like Father Brown, the Rabbi, and Father Dowling.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It’s soon apparent that this audiobook is not going to be a run-of-the-mill listen…Narrator Stefan Rudnicki is pitch- perfect. His deep, gravelly voice adds to the atmosphere and is well matched to the male characters. For the female lead, he adds a lightness to his tone that sounds authentic and helps differentiate the characters. Rudnicki’s narration keeps listeners engaged throughout this fast-paced mystery.” AudioFile
“Parr has a knack for creating memorable characters that come to life in the pages of his novels.” Esquire, praise for the author
“If Michael Connelly and Robert Ludlum wrote a book together, the result would be an Owen Parr crime mystery novel.” Mike Pettit, author of Key West Smackdown
“Parr is a master storyteller, equally adept at weaving a tale of international political intrigue or, as he proves in his latest novel, a classic story of private sleuths cracking a New York murder mystery, with a side order of whiskey and cigars. You’ll want to have both on hand when you pick up this book.” Jim Nesbitt, author of The Last Second Chance
“A well-plotted and researched detective mystery novel. As much as I tried to solve the case while I read, Parr proved me wrong every time.” Oscar Rodriguez, criminal attorney
