Storyline

As dusk approaches a townland near Dublin in the summer of 1985, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children gripping a tree trunk in terror, wearing blood-filled sneakers, and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours. Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Reilly, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 13-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox--his partner and closest friend-find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past. Richly atmospheric and stunning in its complexity, Dublin Murders is utterly convincing and surprising to the very end. Written by amsterdamjen

Confused & ultimately disappointing
7 November 2019 | by brianlewis-04701See all my reviews

A good start but it became apparent that this was really two unconnected plots shoehorned together. I note from the credits it was based on two books and this seemed to come through quite clearly in the TV adaptation. In the end the show dabbled with some supernatural elements but never had the courage to develop them or the writing to develop plot points that otherwise stretched all credulity. The suspension of disbelief was overcome by a sense of annoyance & the ending was an unsatisfactory cop out with both plot lines left with significant gaps. It was atmospheric & technically well put together but ultimately the writing wasn't strong enough. There were also far too many flashbacks which became intrusive & seemed like unnecessary padding.
