Even the Dead---Benjamin Black’s seventh novel featuring the endlessly fascinating Quirke---is a story of surpassing intensity and surprising beauty.
A car crashes into a tree in central Dublin and bursts into flames. The police assume the driver’s death was either an accident or a suicide, but Quirke believes otherwise. Then his daughter Phoebe gets a mysterious visit from an acquaintance, who later disappears. Phoebe asks her father for help, and Quirke in turn seeks the assistance of his old friend Inspector Hackett. Before long the two men find themselves untangling a twisted string of events that takes them deep into a shadowy world where one of the city’s most powerful men uses the cover of politics and religion to make obscene profits.
About: Rendered prone to hallucinations by overwork, Quirke investigates suspicions of foul play in the aftermath of a fatal car crash before teaming up with Inspector Hackett to search for a missing pregnant woman who had been in fear of her life.
