Book 3 Paula Maguire Series - This series is highly addictive. Paula Maguire has a very complex situation in her life besides the fact that her mother has been missing for over 20 years. She is a forensic psychologist and her job keeps her very busy. Five Mayday bombers who caused the death of 16 people are being murdered one at a time and Paula is helping to find the killers. I'm finding the history of Northern Ireland fascinating and how the people were affected. The book is filled with suspense and lots of surprises. Looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Thought it was ok but not Claire's the strongest showing so far. Still, it hasn't put me off looking forward to reading number four. ( )
