The China Chapter

Availability: Ready to download

A man is found dead after a house fire. Detective Fiona Moore suspects foul play. It’s not the charred remains of Tony Phelan that really trouble Dublin law enforcement or the traces of accelerant, so much as the bullet hole in his chest. When a weapon is recovered at the back of the still-smouldering house, it will be the first clue that the death is connected to China. And A man is found dead after a house fire. Detective Fiona Moore suspects foul play. It’s not the charred remains of Tony Phelan that really trouble Dublin law enforcement or the traces of accelerant, so much as the bullet hole in his chest. When a weapon is recovered at the back of the still-smouldering house, it will be the first clue that the death is connected to China. And when Phelan is identified as an airport worker, the investigation begins to focus on suspicious goings-on in relation to a regular A300 freight flight from Shanghai. But pointing the finger at the Chinese is all the rage and maybe detectives have just been led up the garden path. Could the proximity of the victim’s house to prime development land be more relevant? Someone has clearly sought to gain from Phelan’s death, but the detectives’ job would be easier if they could clarify the motive. Enter a mysterious agent from the US and this case gets enormously tricky for detectives Fiona Moore and Aidan Burke to solve.

    Another riveting tale from David Pearson. A great police procedural/mystery set in Dublin. With enjoyable characters and plenty of twists, this book kept me turning pages well past my bedtime. If you are looking for an entertaining mystery, this series is perfect. Highly recommend!

    The story was great. The characters were super as always. The dialogue slowed me down somewhat. There's too much time spent on unnecessary words - as in introductions. Overall, the good story carries it.

    Did I read the same book as the other reviewers? Far too much unnecessary detail in this one for me.

    I find David Pearson's books consistently good reading. My own taste would ask for fewer captures and escapes by central characters; they tend to give the stories a formulaic feel. I have heard and read, however, that publishers tend to push for such scenes. Against that the writing is good and the Irish characters appealing. I find I want to know more about the characters and how they develop across the ouevre. Great interpersonal relationships among the characters and always a rattling good sto I find David Pearson's books consistently good reading.

The focus is less on the mystery and more on the people, and the more violent/ ugly aspects of crime.

    Good story There is a certain amount of humor in these stories . Refreshing . In this case , a house bursts into flame and the fire department finds a body in the kitchen . Without going into detail , murder , arson , conspiracy , and possibly drug importing are all around the edges .

    Terrific! Lots of shenanigans in this one! Too many crimes and too little police power! Extremely clever plot and resolution of all the crimes, some solutions in the gray areas. But the good guys prevailed!!

    Easy interesting reading. Not a very exciting read ,plenty going on in the storyline to make it interesting.A very good busy police procedure,the investigating team and the two main characters have their work cut out,which turns into multiple cases.

    Great characters David Pearson puts interesting characters in his books and ties them into his stories in a way that you wish there were more of his books to read.
