Paul Mulchrone – slacker, good person
Brigit Conroy- nurse, feels responsible for Paul's predicament.
Det. Insp. Jimmy Stewart – honest cop, tries to help Paul and Brigit.
Bunny McGarry – Police Sergeant, good person, shadowy character, tough.
My impressions: humorous, great characters easy to like, lots of action, great mystery.
The story is set in Dublin, Ireland. Some of the native slang used isn't covered by kindle's dictionary function.
The characters in A Man With One of Those Faces are distinctly different and memorable. Watch for Dorothy, she's a blast.
Paul Mulchrone goes out of his way to comfort a nursing home patient about to die. He has a knack for letting failing patients assume he is a relative. But this one tries to kill him, and he has no idea why. Before the patient can be questioned he dies.
From there Paul and Brigit have to run from an unknown mobster who fears the dying patient had divulged a guarded secret about a famous crime committed thirty years ago. The action is intense as they run from the antagonist trying to kill them and a spy in the police department who is working with the bad guys.
The bantering between Paul and Brigit is clever and humorous, not silly or slapstick. Toss Bunny McGarry's character into the mix and the laughs are contagious. Bunny adds a loose canon good guy to the quirky cast.
The editing and sentence structure are good and the plot is excellent.
The worst thing about the story is the title.
The story was enjoyable and I highly recommend it.
