The White Devil of Dublin by P M Terrell is the sequel to The Tempest Murders and we are back in Dublin. Detective Ryan O’Clery is about to uncover a family secret. Ooooo, I love when secrets are exposed. And we have Vikings!
And I do love this cover. Something about eyes draws me in…to the mystery.

The White Devil of Dublin is the sequel to The Tempest Murders, but I believe both can stand alone. I love P M Terrell’s ability to pen a fantastic tale, so I do recommend beginning at the beginning.
We start out with Baldr, know by his crew as Hvitr Bard, The White Devil, standing at the bow of his Viking ship. That’s a great start for me, and I am on board for the ride.
Detective Ryan O’Clery and his partner are serving an arrest warrant in present day North Carolina.
He had found, literally, the woman of his dreams and now he had twin daughters. Life is good. Until…
A historian and author wanted to meet with him…about his ancestry. He thinks she is wrong about, but agrees to see her. When he arrives at her place, he finds her dead, her throat cut ear to ear. His first thought is that it was the work of the serial killer that he had faced off against in The Tempest Murders. But that can’t be. He was dead.
I love the light touches P M Terrell shares, his sister’s twin girls are a delight and their culinary art, well if you are good in the kitchen, this may give you some ideas.
Foreshadowing happens early and I want you to know, P M, I am onto you and I was looking for it. LOL
A romance and love that could last a lifetime will never be. And those that interfered will pay dearly.
“Each O’ ye,” she spat, her words blending with the unforgiving, vicious winds, “is cursed forever more.”
That pretty much says it all.
He’s like a ghost, watching, waiting…
P M Terrel’s writing is gripping, not letting go until the last word is read. I laughed with the characters, I cried for them, and I wished the curse would end and give peace to them all. I worry…fret…and worry some more. Don’t let them out of your sight….PLEASE.
The pacing creates a level of tension and anticipation that has me clutching the book tightly, trying not to race through the pages so I can savor the amazing story as it unfolds.
I cannot find one thing wrong with this fabulous tale. Well done!
