A Callahan Garrity MysteryBook - 2000
Irish Eyes is the latest entry in Kathy Hogan Trocheck's delightfully engaging and suspenseful mystery series featuring the remarkable Callahan Garrity and the outrageous band of "girls" in her Atlanta cleaning crew. Callahan has her hands full for St. Patrick's Day with a crime spree that hit., close to home--and close to her heart.
When Callahan was an Atlanta cop, her partner, Bucky, was a stand-up guy, and he and Callahan have remained the best of pals. Now Bucky needs a date for the annual St. Paddy's Day bash, and Callahan grudgingly goes along. With Mac, her longtime beau, talking about a possible move to Nashville, she's in need of a fun night out. What she gets instead is the shock of her life.
On the way home, Bucky is shot in what looks like a liquor-store holdup while Callahan waits in the car. She's stunned when accusations fly that Bucky is a cop on the take and that he's actually been an accomplice in a string of robberies.
With Bucky in critical condition, his life and reputation hanging in the balance, Callahan and her crew set out to find the truth. As feisty and relentless as ever, Callahan, her lovable mom, Edna, and her ragtag band of House Mouse employees rely on their usual plucky determination and unorthodox sleuthing skills to get answers. This time, it will take every skill they've got to pierce the veil of secrecy surrounding an Irish police fraternal organization and prove that the case is more than it seems.
In true Trocheck fashion, Irish Eyes is an exciting, heartwarming story filled with lively, unforgettable characters. Witty and entertaining, it is also the biggest, best Callahan Garrity outing yet, tension-riddled mystery that probes the depths of corruption, friendship, and betrayal.
