BOOK 1 OF THE SERIES
Ray Irish Occult Mystery Series is set in the dilapidated and corrupt town called Oyster City which has more gruesome murders than Chicago. In the immediate aftermath of World War 2, Ray Irish arrives as a tramp and finds himself cast into a realm of characters who reflect the ideology, bigotry, and social norms of the time. It’s hard-boiled detective fiction with a splash of demon worship that would make Lovecraft proud.
I do enjoy a good mystery and this novel fulfilled that desire. This series is heading in a great direction. Leave it’s readers with a cliffhanger and a new investigation . . . Worthy read and Gordon Brewer you are a new addition to my library.
Die If You Want Praise – Book 2
Drink with the Devil at Midnight – Book 3
Set post WWII, it’s a book that gives history buffs a nice period piece, without being above the head of someone who isn’t as familiar with the time period. Enjoyable throughout and leaves you with a sense that Ray Irish has only begun his journey into the art of detecting.
