A Murder On Wall Street by Owen Parr is Volume 1 of the Joey Mancuso, Father O’Brian Crime Mystery series. Retired NYPD detective Joey Mancuso and his half-brother Father O’Brian, a Catholic priest and the polar opposite of Joey, co-own Captain O’Brian’s Irish Pub and Cigar Bar. A bar patron, a hedge fund manager, spends the night at the pub, celebrating a new client but the next day he falls to his death from the 21st floor of a high-rise building. Was it really suicide? Father O’Brian doesn’t think so and, together with Joey, he begins to investigate, a move that could see the seedy underside of Wall Street flipped upwards for all to see; a move that uncovers an awful lot of other crimes. Using the skills he honed as a detective, Joey starts to dig in and together they begin to piece the sordid tale together.
A Murder on Wall Street: A Joey Mancuso, Father O'Brian Crime Mystery (Volume 1) by Owen Parr is a great story, really well thought out with a very clever plot. This is one of those stories that keep you guessing all the way through, with a plot that never deviates from its course, with plenty of suspense and action to keep you reading to the very last second, and a cast of characters that you kind of expect to see in one of the old-fashioned murder mystery TV shows. The characters have been developed thoroughly, laying the way for what I hope will be more stories in this series. Be prepared for a mystery that twists and turns its way to a conclusion you won’t see coming with characters that you will come to know personally. Great story, I loved it.
