The discovery of a well-preserved woman's head in a peat bog brings Irish archaeologist Cormac and American pathologist Nora to Galway. At the same time, local authorities investigate the disappearance of the Indian-born wife and child of a local landowner. Between the two mysteries, the historical and scientific data, and the landowner's neighbors and relatives with axes to grind, there's plenty here to keep you interested. Keating makes the most of a good thing, slipping easily among Irish, American, and lilting Indian accents. The abridgment works smoothly, as well. Occasional bagpipe music and Keating's natural brogue complete the satisfying listening experience. J.B.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
