We’ve crossed the border and are in the Republic of Ireland. I’m wondering whether I’ll see snow again, all over Ireland, falling on every part of the dark central plain, on treeless hills, falling softly upon the Bog of Allen and on Shannon waves. Would I ever again read Joyce?

“Sit there,” Thomas says. He looks over his shoulder at William, says “Come on,” with a directive nod of his head and gets out of the car. William gets out and the two stand at the front of the car where I can see them talking. Their talk becomes animated with much hand gestures, and head noddings, and jerkings. They come back to the car, but instead of taking me out, get in.

“Stanley,” says Thomas.


Mary Ford has asked Stanley Eigerman, a Messianic Jewish detective, to find her son Stephen, who has been made to disappear during the troubles in the Belfast. For 21 years Mary has grieved for her missing son, and in taking the case Eigerman gets more than he bargains for.

Stanley Oliver is the pen name of a Christian author of poetry, short stories, and plays. Breath of God is his first published novel, which he describes as an uplifting comedy of relationships told through the eyes of Stanley, a Messianic private detective in Belfast, as he carries out his investigation into the disappearance of Steven Ford, in a sharp and witty tone, juxtaposed with several more serious and poignant moments that he thinks create a multi-faceted and captivating story. He is 18, with 85 years of experience and lives in Belfast.

    There is compulsive viewing and I rate this novel as compulsive difficult to put it down! ‘Good’ and ‘bad’ characters are brilliantly described, locations believable and real-life issues competently dealt with. Historic horrors are laid bare and answers delivered from Scripture, not in a Bible thumping way but gently, allowing readers to choose their own response. Although set in Ireland, people from any nation will identify with family difficulties, death, grief, second chances, prejudice, tension ,love, marriage, new life and answers to life’s challenges. I recommend this novel to you.
