Second title in the Torrey Tunet mystery series, set in Ireland. I did not read the first book, and so had no idea of who Torry Tunet was. Consequently, she remained a two-dimensional character, always in the background.

Plot threads were introduced throughout the book, some rather late in the telling. However, the book remained suspenseful and the ending was satisfying.

A Torrey Tunet Mystery.

A Torrey Tunet Mystery. An outsider, Torrey looks on in bewilderment as mysteries crop up one after another in her beloved Ashenden family, which has taken her under its wing. And when the grandfather's will is read and a gypsy, shrouded in purple, arrives on the scene, family secrets fifty years old reveal themselves just as new ones begin to arise, capturing the attention of young and old townspeople alike.

Torrey Tunet is a thief. At least she was, when at the age of fourteen she and her best friend, Donna, stole from a suitcase of dirty money the town psychiatrist had collected. Fourteen years later, Torrey has left her past behind and is now a high-powered translator, working for some of the most important people in the world. Ever seeking peace and quiet for her writing, Torrey Tunet believes she has found it in the quaint village of Ballynagh, nestled in the hills of rural Ireland.

Ever seeking peace and quiet for her writing, Torrey Tunet believes she has found it in the quaint village of Ballynagh, nestled in the hills of rural Ireland. But something-she can't quite put her finger on it-is awry. With every change in the wind comes some strange news. First, her closest friend, Rowena Keegan, tries to run over the esteemed Dr. Ashenden, her own grandfather and master of the biggest manor in town. Why, Torrey wonders, would anyone want to kill him, least of all his favorite granddaughter? Torrey wants to believe that Rowena's attack on the doctor was a simple fluke, but when the old man later turns up dead in the forest, and Rowena confides a pressing secret to her, Torrrey can no longer stay intentionally ignorant. An outsider, Torrey looks on in bewilderment as mysteries crop up one after another in her beloved Ashenden family, which has taken her under its wing. And when the grandfather's will is read and a gypsy, shrouded in purple, arrives on the scene, family secrets fifty years old reveal themselves just as new ones begin to arise, capturing the attention of young and old townspeople alike. Ballynagh might never be the same.

Though she was not always a respectable person, Torrey Tunet is now a law abiding, highly regarded citizen. She has traveled the world as a translator who fluently speaks over a dozen languages. The Children's Language Institute hires her to write a three language series of books aimed at children. Torrey works out of her grandmother's cottage near the Irish town of Ballynagh where she even solved a murder case (see THE IRISH COTTAGE MURDER).

Inspector O'Hare never forgave Torrey for showing him up last year. He likes her even less when she lies about her good friend Rowena Keagen trying to kill her own grandfather, Dr. Ashenden. Rowena spends the night in jail, but is released when the physician denies the story. However, he later dies in what seems like a horse-riding accident. A gypsy swears she has insider information on the accident and will sell to the highest bidder, but she dies in Torrey's bed before she can reveal anything. O'Hare would love to pin the crime on Rowena, thus forcing Torrey to begin sleuthing anew to prove her innocence.

This novel is a rich and fascinating tale that gives readers a glimpse into the lives of residents of a remote small Irish village. The delightful charcaters are a motley crew of ordinary but eccentric people keeping secrets that date back to long before many have been born. Torrey has adapted well to her new lifestyle as the locals have accepted her as one of them. If THE IRISH MANOR HOUSE MURDER is any indication of Dicey Deere's talent, this series can expect a long, popular run.

This is a who-dounit and why was the doctor killed? Sure, it was staged to appear a simple horse riding accident, but who bought the knitting needles just because they were sharp, and for what reason where they bought? I thought at first they were for the purpose of self-abortion.

Rowena discovers sordid secrets her grandfather, the esteemed doctor, has keep hidden for fifty years. Was the gypsy involved in this dasdardly deed, or did she die as a consequence of what she did know of the doctor's past? Seems there was another illegitimate Ashenden offspring some time in the past.

What I had trouble figuring out was why the grandson wanted Rowena charged with the murder. She thought she might inherit the whole estate. And this house looks like the palaces in England, though the green countryside clearly shows Ireland in its glory. I always liked to think that my mother was Irish with her blue eyes and light brown hair, but she too died young -- before I could ask her. There were many Irish and Scots here in the early days of the state being formed. Her mother, Bessie Lynch, was a mountain woman but had the temper of the Irish.

Dicey Deere lives in New York but twice a year spends some time in Ireland. Reminds me of my old friend Bob Wrisley who loved to go to Guatemala (where things were cheaper) during the summer months, then return to his home in an old church building there in Pulaski. He was as eccentric as any Irish commoner anyday.
THE IRISH MANOR HOUSE MURDER is the second in the series of Torrey Tunet mysteries that began with THE IRISH COTTAGE MURDER. And this one's another page turner, just like the first. There are lots of plot twists again. This series has climbed to the top five of my favorites. But I did NOT like the fact that the lover from the last book had already been replaced with no explanation. I like to think of series characters having lives that continue when I'm not reading the books. The sense of time here seems distorted. I really love the subtle stuff -- esp. Torrey's knowlege of language and words (because she's a translator) and her instinct for seeing beyond what she sees. These remind me of Kinsey Millhone (high praise indeed).
