Bantam Books, £. 9stg. In 'Walking on Water' O'Connor manages to weave an intricate tale that keeps the reader guessing right up until the end. Caroline Reilly. Francis Xavier Recaldo, known as FX to his friends, is the only member of the Garda Siochana working in Passage West. A former senior officer in the Garda headquarters in Dublin, FX packed his bags and headed to the sleepy town on the South-West coast of Ireland after suffering from a heart attack. FX's tranquil world is unexpectedly turned upside down early one Wednesday morning when Evangeline Walter's lifeless body is found propped up against a tree in her garden.

The water was unusually high and rose above the grassy bank beside the shore. It was a breathtaking morning, beautiful, mysterious, with the pinkish dawn light playing through the sea fog. 'As I rounded the point I saw her, rising out of the mist. At first I couldn't believe my eyes for, God forgive me, I thought she was walking on water. You'll get your death of cold," I shouted, joking. But it was only when John Spain stretched out his hand to her that he noticed the rope and saw with dismay that she'd been propped upright and lashed to a tree.

As Garda Sergeant Francis Recaldo investigates the murder of American art dealer Evangeline Walter, who was found tied to a tree at the water's edge, he finds his private life called into question when his lover, a married woman, becomes the prime suspect in this crime. Original.

Set in a small coastal village near Cork (although the town and area around Passage South are fictional themsleves) we find former big city Garda Francis Recaldo tucked away in the sleepy coastal town until he finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation after Evengeline Walter an America living in the area is found dead. The plot mostly is based around Recaldo's relationship with Cressida Sweeney and her furtive relationship with Recaldo yet seeming involvement with the murder. The main characters are well put together as is the small village of Passage South and setting within which the story all takes place.

In Passage South, Ireland, the murder of the American art dealer Evangeline Walter would be difficult enough on the townsfolk, but the way she was tied to a tree on the edge of the Glar River made for an even eerier sight as if she floated on the estuary. The village's only police officer, Garda-Sergeant Francis Recaldo has no experience with homicide, but quickly realizes his "innocence" (as a cop that is, not as a lover of a married woman) is over once he sees the corpse.
Francis begins making inquiries by seeking links between locals and the victim. As he digs deeper into Evangeline's affairs in Passage South, Francis finds himself in the worst scenario he could imagine, as the prime suspect is Cressida Sweeney, his clandestine lover.
Psychological mystery fans know that Gemma O'Connor walks on water when it comes to an entertaining who-done-it with deep characters struggling between self actualization (in terms of duty and honor) vs. personal desires and secrets. WALKING ON WATER has that and more as the police procedural is cleverly designed so that the audience looks over the shoulder of Francis while also seeing inside his gut. The townsfolk and the victim (when she was alive and through the investigation) make the village real and the torn lead protagonist's agony genuine. Ms. O'Connor provides readers with a triumphant perceptual murder mystery.

A lovely little example of a modern cozy. The book kept me reading far past the time that I had alotted myself to read. O'Connor created some believable and sympathetic characters who behave with just the right amount of natural obstruction (and no more). Her Garda Sergeant Recaldo is fresh character, and a likable one.
Small flaws: the details felt a little bit ragged in some of the places the plot was spun around Mrs. Walters and it was not always clear with which of the three policemen we were dealing.
Minor quarrels, these. Well worth the effort.
