THE SCENE FOR OUR STORY is Dublin, Ireland, and the gruesome murder of poor Rick Shevlin at the Earlbrook Hotel near the Christ Church district of Dublin. So where in the world is that exactly? Well, here are two maps to help with our search. Also, the Special Detective Unit is housed at Harcourt Street. We’ll see if we can find that, too. Then when we zero in I’ll look for pictures of the place.

KATE PEARSON MYSTERY SERIES

Now before we go any further with this it is important to note the our BOTM LAST KISS is actually thekate-pearson-mystery-series third book in the KATE PEARSON MYSTERY SERIES. You can get the entire four-book series by clicking right HERE! And I just now ordered a Kindle copy of THE GAME CHANGER!

Why was this book selected? Okay, here’s what happened. See I’ve got this pal I ran into online a few years ago who lives in London. His name is Richard Godwin. Richard is a fantastic writer who does this blog called QUICK FIRE AT THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE where he interviews writers. That’s where I met Louise! And the rest is history!

I always like to bring some music to the party. Try this one out: Last Kiss by Joe Bonamasa

 When Kate observes Rick Shevlin’s body she realizes that it has been positioned just like the Hanhanged-manged Man card from a Tarot deck, where one leg is bent under the other and the hands are tied behind the back. This was the first mention of the Tarot in our story, but we are far from finished with it. Just wait. You’ll see!

Now in addition to our gruesome murder scene, we encounter something else creepy called tache noir, a condition of the the victim’s eyeball. Check out this photo I found:
