Reviews

"Haunting, atmospheric, and gripping. One of the finest Irish mystery debuts of recent years. Tana French has some serious competition." -- John Connolly, New York Times best-selling author
"An entourage of fascinating people and mysterious places lace this mystery with plenty of bark and bite. A captivating gem." -- Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author
"Andrea Carter writes brilliantly about a lively, entirely credible community where even your friends are suspects and your neighbors may end up dead. Everyone has a secret, and the revelations come thick and fast. Riveting, intriguing, and worryingly real." -- Liz Nugent, award-winning author
"With Death at Whitewater Church, Andrea Carter announces herself as one of the most exciting new voices in Irish crime fiction. A wonderfully written debut, the rugged beauty of Donegal provides a stunningly realized backdrop to the twists and turns of Ben's investigations." -- Brian McGilloway, New York Times best-selling author
"Some readers will be happy to go with Carter's languorous pace, relishing every particle of vividly described landscape." -- Booklist
"Writing with Agatha Christie in mind, Carter draws her heroine as curious, if bordering on interfering, and her debut's pacing as she explores the story encourages readers to seek the same connections she does." -- Kirkus Reviews
"A beguiling heroine--clever, sympathetic, and bearing a weight of guilt... This is Andrea Carter's first book; she'll go far." -- The Times (London)
"Carter excels in re-creating the cloistered, gossipy confines of a small Irish village... the Inishowen Peninsula community where everybody knows everybody else's business is a fine stand-in for the mannered drawing-room society of a Christie mystery." -- Sunday Times
"Death at Whitewater Church is a charming debut that bodes well for Andrea Carter." -- Irish Times

"I adored this traditional crime novel; it's modern day Agatha Christie with Ben as Miss Marple." -- Irish Examiner

"It's like a modern-day Agatha Christie set in a small community with all the alliances, secrets and rivalry such a place can engender. There are enough twists to hold the interest throughout and it builds to a crescendo in a dramatic and highly satisfying close." -- Books Ireland Magazine

"Set in the ruggedly beautiful landscape of the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal, this assured debut mystery by Dublin-based barrister Andrea Carter introduces country solicitor and amateur sleuth Benedicta O'Keeffe." -- Irish Independent
