Murder At Ulster Arms is a fast paced novel written by author Bob McCarthy. It is a fictionalized account of a brutal murder and its subsequent investigation by the R.C.M.P. Its passage through the court system is skilfully handled, and the proceedings are never dull. The interplay between the defence lawyer and the R.C.M.P Corporal is an example of heightened drama in a courtroom. Overall, it is an excellent description of trial procedures that includes a chilling coroner’s report and professional opinions concerning the accused. A fascinating view of the legal system and its consequences. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend it to other readers.
