What does the title mean: Holding by Graham Norton

Graham Norton was well known in Britain but for his TV presence until he also became an autho . This was his first novel and he has gone on to write several more. Norton was off to an excellent start with this story set in Ireland.

PJ (Peej) is the Garda in a small Irish village. He is overweight and, at times, seemingly overwhelmed. He was certainly not prepared for a murder investigation but this is what he gets when a body is found on a building site.

Many in the community think that they know who the victim was. Are they right?

This novel offers a mystery and a portrait of a community with an eccentric group of characters. Among them are two women who were involved with a man who disappeared.

This book was recently made into a TV show that is being shown on Acorn in the U.S. Read the book first, then watch the show for the full experience.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Atria Books for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
