STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Good Performance

THE BIRDICT

🧡 I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but this one doesn’t match the genre. It implies a domestic/psychological thriller. I thought it was about a serial killer and this is more gangland police procedural. So this isn’t my usual genre but good enough that I finished it.

💚 The story centres on Brendan Foley, a policeman trying to separate himself from his father’s criminal past. It’s more hit you on the head (literally sometimes) rather than nuanced, but that’s an observation, not a criticism.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 Perfect casting. Warren Brown has that gruff, tough man voice which suited Foley. Not so much Iona. A second, female narrator would have helped.

Far from the Tree

THE BLURB

Twenty-seven bodies, vacuum-packed, buried in a woodland trench - some have been there for years, some for just days. DI Foley finds himself the Senior Investigating Officer on one of the largest murder cases the country has ever seen. This could make his career.

But as new discoveries unfold, this horrific gangland crime suddenly gets personal. Too personal. Foley has a choice. Solve the crime and risk his family? Or leave well alone? To a man like Brendan, that’s no choice at all…
