Death on Clare Island, Martha Geaney - paperback

"American information broker Star O'Brien has journeyed to ruggedly beautiful Clare Island, in County Mayo, Ireland, for two reasons. One is to settle the estate of her recently deceased lover. The other is to tackle the mystery of her own existence. As owner of the Consulting Detective, Star's accustomed to spending long hours scouring through public records and obscure databases to research mundane, un-dangerous things like divorce, adoption, and missing heirs. She's not accustomed to dealing with freshly dead bodies. The police say it's a closed case. A young drug addict wandered too close to Clare Island's famously treacherous cliffs. But Star doesn't believe the stories she's hearing about the young man, just as she didn't believe it when the police dismissed her mother's disappearance as "abandonment" when Star was only six years old. Star puts her investigation skills to work, trying to separate truth from fiction in the testimonies of those close to the victim. Who is telling the truth and who is lying to her? The head of an anti-drug foundation? A volatile ex-lover or a besotted young art student? The restorer of the island's ruins? Then another body turns up. Can the fiercely independent Star face up to her own past, while racing to uncover the killer before she becomes the next victim?" -- Back cover
