A meaty book from Derry
"The subject is roses," Detectives Beyond Borders wrote in April, "specifically a competition to design a peace garden for the White House – and if you think gardening is a clean pursuit, this book will shock you. Downey brings back some of the characters from his previous books, tough, savvy, engaging and, in some cases, unscrupulous folks from Ireland north and south, and he throws in Americans and Englishmen this time. These last give Downey fresh new satirical targets."Newly pertinent professional ethics prevent me from saying much more about the book, but I hope you'll find the proofreading satisfactory.
And here's Downey's Web site for info about the books, a promotional video for War of the Blue Roses, and some covers that will make you smile.
