Orchid Blue (The Blue Trilogy)
1 journaler for this copy...
"Janueary 1961. The beaten, stabbed and strangled body of a nineteen-year-old Pearl Gamble is discovered after a dance the previous night at Newry Orange Hall. The town is eager for justice, and local man Robert McGladdery is soon arrested.
But Detective Eddie McCrink, freshly returned from London, begins to suspect that the investigation is being influence from the outside. And when Lord Justice Curran - whose own nineteen-year-old daughter was murdered nine years earlier in strangely similar circumstances - is assigned to try the case, it becomes increasingly difficult for everyone involved to separate the tragedies of the past from the crimes of the present."
This book was bought at my local library's book bazaar. It's been withdrawn from a public library, but is in excellent condition.

This is one of the best crime fiction stories I've read. At the beginning it looks as if the story is going to follow one of the trite plots, but it doesn't. Instead of trying outright to solve the murder, the writer prefers to give an insight to the characters, the judicial system and the small community.
