Whitewater Church is the first in a series of Ben O'Keeffe mysteries set on the Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal, Ireland.
ANDREA CARTER is a barrister living in Dublin. She graduated in law from Trinity College, Dublin in 1991 and qualified as a solicitor, setting up her own practice on the Inishowen peninsula in Donegal in 1998. In 2005 I transferred to the bar and moved to Dublin to practise as a barrister. In 2011 she was a finalist in the Irish Times Power's Whiskey Short Story Competition and her short story, 'What Maisie Did', was published in Celebrating What Really Matters - Powers Whiskey Short Story Collection. Her novel Treacherous Strand, also published by Constable, was long listed for the 2012 Irish Writers Centre Novel Fair.
I adored this traditional crime novel; it's modern day Agatha Christie with Ben as Miss Marple * Irish Examiner * Death at Whitewater Church is a charming debut that bodes well for Andrea Carter * Irish Times * A promising start * The Sunday Times Crime Club * The colourful cast of characters may be fictional, but the landscapes, towns and villages are instantly recognisable * Irish Daily Mail * A beguiling heroine - clever sympathetic and bearing a weight of guilt . . . This is Andrea Carter's first book; she'll go far * The Times *
