Dorothy Graham is dead. This is hugely inconvenient, not least for her. Luckily, she has planned for this eventuality. Now, if any of her truly dreadful family want to get their hands on her money, they will have to do so via a fiendishly difficult and frankly bizarre competition of Dorothy's devising. Just because you're dead, it doesn't mean you can't enjoy a last laugh at the expense of people who made your life miserable. 

Paul Mulchrone, to his unending credit, is neither related to Dorothy nor happy that she is dead. What he is, however, is a contestant in this competition whether he likes it or not, which he definitely doesn't. He and his girlfriend, the formidable Brigit, are supposed to be running MCM Investigations, a detective agency. Instead, they have to go into battle against Dorothy's bloodsucking relatives. As if that wasn't enough, they get hired by the aforementioned dead woman to find out who killed her. 

DI Jimmy Stewart is retired, bored out of his mind and contemplating lawn bowls. When the offer comes to get back into the crime solving business, it is too good to turn down. But when he finds himself teamed up with the nephew of a man he imprisoned, and a flatulent dog, he starts to think that taking up lawn bowls wouldn't be such a bad idea after all. 

The Final Game is a standalone crime novel perfect for readers new to Caimh McDonnell's blackly comic take on his hometown, as featured in the international bestselling Dublin Trilogy books. His previous works have been optioned for TV and nominated for awards, which they stubbornly keep refusing to win.
