The series that follow the agency of P.I. Liam Taggart and lawyer Catherine Lockhart as they investigate Holocaust claims now pivots to Northern Ireland in this latest compelling entry. Taggart’s own family calls him home to Antrim when his Uncle Fergus dies. Relations are a little shaky, as Liam last left his cousins and ex-girlfriend some twenty years ago, after it was exposed that he was working for the CIA. Liam returns to a hung jury, with some of the family convinced the death (and further threats) are tied to their connections a long-ago feud with the Shankill Butchers, while the local police think it’s likely a family member angling for the inheritance. Being that Fergus made Liam the executor of the trust that ties up the assets until the murder (which Fergus anticipated!) is solved, Liam winds up knee-deep in trouble that may go back to the Troubles.

Liam Taggart suddenly finds himself in the middle of tangled family relationships and troubled Irish history when an uncle he has not heard from in sixteen years dies and names him trustee of his estate. Liam returns to Northern Ireland from Chicago to carry out his duties and lands in the middle of a nightmare that threatens to engulf not only the Irish branch, but also Liam’s wife and infant son. The Trust is a suspenseful read that taught me a few things about Irish history as well!

— Anne K. McMahon
