We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm. George Orwell

The 11.05 Murders

by: Brian OHare

He comes and goes as he pleases: even when the police know the target, the date and the time of his next murder, he still kills his victim and escapes without being apprehended. Who can stop a killer like this? Three people are murdered on separate Tuesday evenings at precisely 11.05. Random clues point to random suspects, but too many questions remain unanswered. Why 11.05pm for each killing? Is there any connection between these deaths and a rape that occurred at Queen’s university twelve years before? What is the connection between the killings and Sergeant Stewart’s mystery informant? Who is the violent stalker who twice nearly kills Detective Allen? What is his connection, if any, to the murders? When one of his team is kidnapped, Inspector Sheehan has literally only minutes to make sense of these questions if he is to save his colleague’s life. 'The 11.05 Murders' was chosen as “the solo medallist winner” in the Mystery Category of The New Apple 2016 Summer eBook Awards for Excellence Some Comments from other writers: “The first thing I thought after reading this book is: why isn't Brian O'Hare better known in the crime writing world? This man is extremely talented, and his book a wonderful ‘whodunnit’ that left me guessing until the end.” [Joseph Sousa, Crime-writer] “Head and shoulders above most mystery authors who are published today, Brian O’Hare deserves far wider recognition. You won’t regret purchasing his books.” [CBT, Amazon Reviewer] “Brian O’Hare is an intelligent and compassionate storyteller who takes his chosen genre a decent literary distance beyond your average ‘whodunnit’.” [Robin Chambers, author]
