The first thing I thought after reading this book is: why isn't Brian O'Hare better known in the crime writing world? This man is extremely talented, and his book a wonderful whodunnit that left me guessing until the end.

O'Hare masterfully tells a tale of obsession, lust and political maneuvering. Set in Nothern Ireland, we start with a sexual assault on a young college woman that happened twelve years ago. We are then brought back to the here and now with the violent murder of a unethical loan officer. His connection to the sexual assault soon becomes apparent, and before long the body of another man from that era comes to light. One more man from that fateful day is still alive, and the police must save his life and catch the clever killer.

But there's so much more between these pages. Amazing dialogue and setting, for starters. Intricate plotting and a vibrant pace. But where O'Hare shines is in the brilliant characters he's created. Stewart, the beautiful but standoffish sergeant, is one of his best. She is smart, sexy and dedicated to her job, and yet troubled at the same time. Her budding romance with a fellow police officer is masterfully told. But his character, Mike 'The Bat' Weir is a brilliant portrayal of a villain, a monster in all respects. I could read an entire novel with these two in it.

If you love police crime novels, you must read O'Hare. I have to say, I was unsure of what I was getting into after glimpsing the uninspired title. Don't let that put you off because it doesn't do this brilliant novel justice. Also, the novel needs better proofreading and formatting, but these are minor quips in view of his unique talent as a writer. I can't recommend this book enough. I'm so glad I discovered this author. Highly recommended!

Radio Interview about The Miracle Ship

On Sunday 8th May, Michael O'Neill, Miracle Hunter, aired his weekly programme on Relevant Radio, Illinois. There are three or four items on this programme,  but one on them is an interview with Brian O'Hare, author of The Miracle Ship. The Miracle Ship
Here is the audio archive of the interview:

Friday, 6 May 2016



Three people are murdered on separate Tuesday evenings at precisely 11.05. Random clues point to random suspects, but too many questions remain unanswered. Why 11.05pm for each killing? Is there any connection between these deaths and a rape that occurred at Queen’s university twelve years before? What is the connection between the killings and Sergeant Stewart’s mystery informant? Who is the violent stalker who twice nearly kills Detective Allen? What is his connection, if any, to the murders? When one of his team is kidnapped, Inspector Sheehan has literally only minutes to make sense of these questions if he is to save his colleague’s life.


The first thing I thought after reading this book is: why isn't Brian O'Hare better known in the crime writing world? This man is extremely talented, and his book a wonderful ‘whodunnit’ that left me guessing until the end.

Head and shoulders above most mystery authors who are published today, Brian O’Hare deserves far wider recognition. You won’t regret purchasing his books.
[CBT, Amazon Reviewer]

Brian O’Hare is an intelligent and compassionate storyteller who takes his chosen genre a decent literary distance beyond your average ‘whodunnit’.
[Robin Chambers, author]

An explosive mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end, riddled with unseen surprises and breathless suspense!
