Beyond the Pale by Clare O'Donohue

The story alternates between Hollis and Finn who have now reached an impasse in their relationship at home. Professors and both highly involved in their careers, their marriage is in the doldrums. An  opportunity to find a rare manuscript sees them haring off to Ireland.

This is where the story gets both interesting and a bit long winded. Trying to get the manuscript is several bad guys and gals and these two innocents are like lambs to the slaughter. They know it is not as simple as it sounds - a twenty minute operation is the description originally but escaping the not so good guys at every turn makes one skeptical.

Descriptions of Ireland was one of the highlights of this story on another note!

Good story, but it seemed to get side tracked on the way.

  1. I think I'd enjoy the setting - too bad it gets sidetracked.

  2. Great that you had a good taste of the setting and then I suspect a little eye rolling now and then at the escapades!

  3. Sometimes adventures require the suspension of believe. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
