The Death of An Irish Tinker
A Peter McGarr MysteryBook - 1997
A body is found shackled to the upper branches of the tallest tree in Ireland. The victim is a "Tinker, " one of the mysterious class of itinerant travelers who have roamed Ireland for generations. The murder bears all the signs of being the Toddler's work--but who was the victim, and why was he killed? The answer lies with a Tinker woman named Biddy Nevins. She's the only one who can put Desmond Bacon away--if McGarr can get to her before the Toddler does.
Full of Bartholomew Gill's wonderfully authentic observations of Irish culture, The Death of an Irish Tinker is a suspenseful thriller and gripping mystery.
