Gerard O’Donovan was born in Cork and grew up in Dublin. After abandoning a career in the Irish Customs & Excise service Gerard O'Donovan travelled widely, living in Madrid and Vienna before settling down to make a living as a journalist and critic for such publications as The Sunday Times and Daily Telegraph.

In 2007 he was shortlisted for the Crime Writers' Association's prestigious Debut Dagger competition. That set in train a series of events that led to his debut novel The Priest being published, and becoming a bestseller, in Ireland, the UK and many other countries.

His second book, also featuring Mike Mulcahy and Siobhan Fallon, a sequel to The Priest is called Dublin Dead and was published in 2011.

The Priest is the first in a series of gripping Dublin-based crime thrillers featuring Irish cop DI Mike Mulcahy, and Siobhan Fallon, chief reporter for an Irish tabloid newspaper.

"His name is the Priest. His weapon is a crucifix. His victims don't have a prayer.

A killer is stalking the dark streets of Dublin. Before each attack, he makes the sign of the cross; then he sends his victims to God.

After a foreign politican's daughter is brutally assaulted and left for dead, her body branded with burns from a blazing cross, the case falls to Detective Inspector Mike Mulcahy. Mulcahy is one tough cop, but this crime is beyond comprehension - and The Priest is a nemesis more evil and elusive than any Mulcahy has ever faced: an angel of death with a soul dark as hell.

As a media frenzy erupts and the city reels in terror, Mulcahy teams up with ambitious journalist Siobhan Fallon in a desperate bid to stop The Priest in his tracks before he can complete his divine mission of murder."

'Fast-paced, exciting and thrilling, this is an impressive debut’ – The Sunday Times

‘It is difficult to believe that 'The Priest' is O’Donovan’s first novel, so gripping and assured is it. And, one asks, in crime-writing terms, is Ireland becoming the new Scotland?’ – The Times

374 pages.
