Torrey Tunet, the American translator (and accidental sleuth) holed up in the Irish town of Ballynaugh, has more trouble on her hands when wealthy widow and affordable housing advocate Natalie Sylvester Cameron (""A darling. High heels. Spotless reputation"") finds herself being blackmailed. The Irish Cairn Murder: A Torrey Tunet Mystery, Dicey Deere's follow-up to The Irish Manor House Murder, shows off some intricate plotting and a cast of eccentrics, including Jasper, Tunet's overweight gourmand boyfriend, and her rival, the inept and vengeful Inspector O'Hare.
