The 11.05 Murders… A Captain Sheehan mystery book2
By Brian O’Hare

The story starts off with Denise Stewart looking for her new office. She has been transferred to Captain Chenes serious crimes division. She had to be transferred after turning in her previous superior Captain Curly for being in Cahoots with a drug and prostitution ring and her fellow police did not treat her the same in her last department… And that’s why she was transferred. That’s also why she finds her self looking for a serious crimes division and refusing to ask directions because what kind of detective could not find her new office? That’s the way she is though defenseless and standoffish. After all she is a female and in a mainly mail job and she wants to garner respect for her abilities as a detective and nothing else. So this is why she is fumbling around the police station looking for the serious crimes department instead of asking for directions.

With a sigh of relief she finally finds it. When she opens the door the first person she runs into is an overweight detective who quickly give her an eyeball evaluation, but never offers to get the big box she has in tow. Seeing Captain Sheehan’s door she makes a beeline for it ; Knocking quickly to try and get away from the ocular evaluator. She hears a kind voice say “come in!” Walking in she notices him Wentz as he stands up to grab her box, putting it down in one chair motions for her to sit in the other.

This is the second book in the Captain Sheehan mysteries , Although this book starts off telling us about Denise Stewart the books are mainly focused around Captain Sheehan. He is newly married, a very nice man and when WDS Stuart meets him he is suffering from a pinched nerve going from his back down his leg. He tries not to let it show. After all he has a lot to do. He has to let the other detectives know that WDS Stewart will be working with them and to let them know her turning in and testifying against her last superior will be looked at, as a good thing in this department. Because turning in a dirty cop should always be a good thing ; and let’s not forget the 11.05 murders.

The first murder is a loan officer for a prestigious bank. He has eagle eyes for those who are one second late on their loan payments, he cheats on his wife Pauline. She is the one who finds him dead on the living room floor with his privates in his mouth and his watch intentionally stopped at 11:05 PM

As captain Sheehan and his crew are called in to investigate, WDS Stewart has her suspicions confirmed when she gets a dozen roses from DA Turner, not to mention her new colleague Detective Alan is showing interest, all this a stocker and a secret informant or is the secret informant the stocker?

There is a lot going on, but author Brian O’Hare did a masterful job wrapping it up. It was professionally edited and had no grammatical errors that I could see. I gave it 4 out of 4 Starsand I believe it deserves every one of them. Brian O’Hare is an established writer; he has many mystery books, not including the captain Sheehan mysteries. He also wrote books about his religion and even did an autobiography about a man who some say could perform miracles. I think this book would be great for anyone 18 or older it has adult themes and every now and then they have adult language. I think anyone who likes cop dramas and/or mysteries will enjoy this book.
