Overview

THE FIRST NOVEL IN THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING DISMAS HARDY SERIES!

In his new life as a bartender at the Little Shamrock, Dismas Hardy is just hoping for a little peace. He’s left both the police force and his law career behind. Unfortunately it’s not as easy to leave behind the memory of a shattering personal loss—but for the time being, he can always take the edge off with a stiff drink and round of darts.
 
But when the news of Eddie Cochran’s death reaches him, Hardy is propelled back into all the things he was trying to escape. And forced to untangle a web of old secrets and raw passions, for the sake of Eddie’s pregnant widow, Frannie—and for the others whose lives may still be at risk...

This is the first in the series of Dismas Hardy and normally I would recommend starting there, but not in this case. While the story is OK had I started here I would not have continued with an excellent series. Starting with 'The Vig' you get all the background you need and it is a better book. Continuing on with the series they only get better. If you are like me that has to read everything you can always go back and pick up 'Dead Irish' when you know the characters and writer better.

It's always interesting to go back and read the early entries in a series when you're only familiar with the later ones. Dismas and Abe are different people here, but you can see glimmers of the characters they become. Pretty good story that keeps you guessing just enough about what's going on.

I enjoyed this book, it held my interest and had a nice twist at the end. I will be reading more from this author.

Dead Irish provides excellent entertainment, but the language runs amok with foul words too often.  The character of Dismas Hardy shows a multi sided character with many endearing traits.  The sense of friendship and family loyalty stand tall in the story.  Did I pick the correct culprit as the killer, yes, the clues pointed to one character, but Lescroart makes the journey interesting.  I always enjoy a different setting and this is in California.  I will probably read another book in the Dismas Hardy series.

There are so many flaws in this book that I wanted to bang everyone's heads together.  Does this writer not have an editor?
