The hero of Christine Falls, Quirke, is a surly pathologist living in 1950s Dublin. One night, after having a few drinks at a party, he returns to the morgue to find his brother-in-law tampering with the records on a young woman's corpse. The next morning, when his hangover has worn off, Quirke reluctantly begins looking into the woman's history. He discovers a plot that spans two continents, implicates the Catholic Church, and may just involve members of his own family. He is warned--first subtly, then with violence--to lay off, but Quirke is a stubborn man. The first novel in the Quirke series brings all the vividness and psychological insight of John Banville's writing to the dark, menacing atmosphere of a first-class thriller.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Benjamin BlackPublisher: Picador USAPublished: 01/22/2008ISBN: 9780312426323Pages: 369Weight: 0.75lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.40w x 1.00dReview Citations: New York Times Book Review 03/02/2008 pg. 28
