The White Devil of Dublin by P.M. Terrell with playlist
The White Devil of Dublin
Ryan O’Clery Mysteries Book #2
Genre- Romantic Suspense
Published By- Drake Valley Press
Expected Publication Date- September 15th, 2014
When Detective Ryan O’Clery receives a call from a noted historian claiming to have uncovered information about his Irish ancestors, he is certain she is mistaken. But when he arrives for their meeting, he finds the historian murdered and her computer stolen. His investigation will lead him to 12th Century Ireland, to a time of the Viking invasion and conquest, to an albino known as The White Devil of Dublin, and to a shocking secret his family kept hidden for more than eight hundred years. He will also come face-to-face with a present-day albino serial killer, intent on finishing the job he started.
This is going to sound like a tribute to Alex Band, but I absolutely adore and admire his songs. He is perhaps best known for his song, Wherever You Will Go, which was the most popular love song from 2000-2010, especially after 9/11.
A songwriter with incredible depth, he wrote every song on his album, We’ve All Been There. The word on the street is that he wrote the songs after a painful breakup, and they take you on a musical journey of deciding to leave, going through the grief without the one you love, and finally emerging to find love again. (One of his official videos is here, as he sings Tonight.):
The song I have listened to most often with the first Ryan O’Clery book, The Tempest Murders, as well as this sequel, The White Devil of Dublin, is Will Not Back Down. Ryan would crawl through hell to protect his lover, Cathleen, in The Tempest Murders - and again in The White Devil of Dublin. If the books were ever made into a movie, that would have to be the theme song.
I love listening to romantic music and the voices of the singers can make or break a song for me. I absolutely love the way that American Idol contestant (and runner-up) Jena Irene sings Creep. I would love to know the thought process behind the writing of the words, but the haunting way in which she sings it is what brings me back to it time and again.
