Storyline

A female student dies from a fall from the roof of the university. She is dressed in a theatre costume and wears a ring of paper with a quote from the play "Deirdre of the Sorrows" typed within. When drugs are found in the young woman's blood, the Police assume suicide as the cause of death. The Literature Professor of the dead student believes that his student has been murdered and asks Jack for help. Jack and Cody attend to the case. Pretending to be a student Cody investigates at the university and discovers dark secrets behind the squeaky-clean-seeming facade of the university. When another female literature student first disappears and then is found dead Jack and Garda Kate Noonan who set out alone to follow the clues move into the focus of the murderer...

Another solid Jack Taylor installment
30 June 2013 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

Solid performances by Iain Glen, Nora-Jane and supporting cast carry The Dramatist.

Set several months after The Magdalena Martyrs with Jack experiencing sobriety for the first time in years, we get a closer and more personal look into his character as he is commissioned by a local professor to investigate a student's apparent suicide.

As the events unfold and suicide turns into a couple of homicides, we see a connection to Jack's past. Layers of Jack's character are further revealed as he deals with a close personal tragedy and confronts consequences of previous inebriate actions.

Yet again the world gets a peek into a rich Irish culture and history with the introduction of "Deidre of the Sorrows" by J. M. Synge.
