Sins of the Fathers is a superb follow-up to Valberg and sets the third book up nicely. Desmond demonstrates, yet again, how effective he is as a crime author and knows how to write a compelling and engaging crime novel that keeps you enthralled and makes it hard for you to put down. I, for one, am eagerly anticipating the third book in the series and what is set to be a terrific finale to a sublime trilogy.’

‘I have just finished this book and literally could not put it down, seriously addictive, with the excitement, tension and suspense drawing you in with every line. It had momentum that could only be described as relentless, so get ready for your pulse to race at breakneck speed! Please let it be soon that the third book is released! Desmond J. Doherty, you’re up there with the best!’

‘As a born-and-bred Derryman I must say I enjoyed the book.’

‘Superb! Kept me in a trance! This series is a must for all crime readers!’
