December in Glendara, Inishowen, and solicitor Benedicta 'Ben' O'Keeffe is working flat-out before the holidays; the one bright spot on her horizon is spending her first Christmas with Sergeant Tom Molloy.But on a trip to Dublin to visit her parents, she bumps into Luke Kirby - the man who killed her sister - freshly released from jail. He apologises to her; remorseful, conciliatory ... but as she walks away, he whispers something that chills her to the bone. Back in Glendara, there is chaos. The Oak pub has burned down and Carole Kearney, the Oak's barmaid, has gone missing. And then on Christmas morning, while walking up Sliabh Sneacht, Ben and Molloy make a gruesome discovery: a body lying face-down in the snow ... Soon it becomes clear that these events are part of a plan for revenge that will have devastating consequences for Glendara's residents.
About the Author
Andrea Carter graduated in Law from Trinity College, Dublin. She qualified as a solicitor and moved to the Inishowen peninsula where she lived and worked for a number of years. In 2005 she transferred to the Bar and moved to Dublin to practise as a barrister. She grew up in Ballyfin, Co Laois. Death at Whitewater Church was her first novel.
A moving - and exciting - well-observed account of crime, innocence, gullibility, and a determination to get things right ... the ideal novel to read curled up in front of a good fire while storms rage outside * Book Oxygen * A pure delight, featuring a lively crew of memorable characters, action aplenty and stunning scenery * Irish Independent * Carter writes very much in the village mystery tradition, with a likeable amateur detective, an atmospheric and vividly rendered sense of place and engagingly drawn series characters ... The Well of Ice moves towards a spectacular and explosive conclusion * Irish Times * There's gripping suspense in contrast to the warm and well drawn Irish country community in solicitor sleuth Benedicta 'Ben' O'Keefe's third case * Evening Telegraph * Another thriller full of twists from the solicitor turned author * Irish Country Magazine * A promising start * The Sunday Times Crime Club on Death at Whitewater Church * I adored this traditional crime novel; it's modern day Agatha Christie with Ben as Miss Marple * Irish Examiner on Death at Whitewater Church * Death at Whitewater Church is a charming debut that bodes well for Andrea Carter * Irish Times * The colourful cast of characters may be fictional, but the landscapes, towns and villages are instantly recognisable * Irish Daily Mail on Death at Whitewater Church * A beguiling heroine - clever sympathetic and bearing a weight of guilt . . . This is Andrea Carter's first book; she'll go far * The Times on Death at Whitewater Church *
