The Detective’s Muse
Can O’Huiggin find the killers, finish his poem and recover his hope for love?
In The Detective’s Muse, Lieutenant O’Huiginn is investigating a brutal crime when he realizes the victim's friend, Anne Tadmore, looks exactly like his fiancé who died a year earlier. Her presence rekindles the poetic fire that has been smoldering within him, and he finds himself falling in love with her. As O’Huiginn unravels the mystery, he is drawn to the aisling, a traditional form of Irish poetry he learned from his father.
But when Anne disappears, along with a small fortune in stolen sapphires, O’Huiginn sets out on a treacherous search that will either cost him his life and his career or help him recover his heart. As the body count escalates, time is running out. Can O’Huiginn solve the crime, find love, and finally finish his aisling poem?
The Detective’s Muse is an intricate story of human relationships, offering a message that one can recover from a loss, no matter how great it is.
