McInery's 40-year Notre Dame career is the basis for the profound understanding of university life that underpins this well-plotted, very amusing mystery. Ralph McInerny's has taught for over forty years at the University of Notre Dame, where he is director of the Jacques Maritain Center. The drive to uncover the truth drives the book, unfortunately the novelty of ND and an eccentric side plot are crutches that are leaned on a bit too much. 2 people found this helpful.

From Publishers Weekly. In McInerny's seventh pleasant page-turner set at the University of Notre Dame (after 2002's Celt and Pepper) featuring professor Roger Knight and his PI brother Philip, Fred Neville, assistant sports information director, yearns for a career in literature. He even writes poetry when no one is looking. When Fred dies mysteriously in bed, it comes out at his funeral service that he had another, more interesting, life: he was secretly engaged to at least two women, to the surprise and consternation of each. Though this is the seventh game at Notre Dame, Ralph McInerny provides a fresh tale that showcases the university with a lighter than usual case as the mechanism.

RALPH McINERNY is the author of more than forty books, including the popular Father Dowling series, and has taught for over fifty years at the University of Notre Dame, where he is the director of the Jacques Maritain Center.

The University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana is gearing up for a highly anticipated football game. Baylor University, the country's preeminent Protestant college, will meet the Catholic football powerhouse for the first time. Game day, most ironically, falls on Reformation Day-the day recognizing the historic moment when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Schlosskirche (castle church) in Wittenberg in 1517  . The description of Notre Dame University campus was fun. I am not a mystery reader but I enjoyed this book for the writing, character description, and locale.

A classic, though not complicated mystery (I did not solve it --prior to the solution being revealed--even though it was right there in front of my eyes).
Delightfully human (and sometimes hilarious) characters. A few malcontents you can love to hate, as well.
I have visited ND only once briefly, so I'm sure a few of the "in" jokes escaped me. I have enough Catholic friends and watch an occasional college football game, so much of the ND humor still was intelligible.
Incidentally, a serious look at some "ecumenical" religious topics.
A fun read that made me think a little, as well.

So happy with my purchase and the wonderful condition it arrived in!

As a recent alumn, I enjoyed reading Lack of the Irish for its constant, detailed reference to the campus, the student body, and the regular traditions of the place. That being said, if the story took place on any other campus (Georgetown, BC, St. Mary's, or Baylor) I would have been fairly bored.

The plot is basic, a classic murder-whodunit, with multiple suspects and self-righteous manipulators. I felt a little cheated at the reveal; the story did not seem to lead up to its end. Additionally, the side plot (about an overzealous preacher) took over the story and seemed more important than the murder (at least to Ralph McInerny) and I wish the book had focused more on the suspects and investigation.

Lack of the Irish is short and fun, and reads fairly quickly. While it's not Dan Brown-pulp, you will find yourself struggling to set it down. The drive to uncover the truth drives the book, unfortunately the novelty of ND and an eccentric side plot are crutches that are leaned on a bit too much.

This is a very funny and interesting murder mystery that takes place at the U. of Notre Dame. There are a lot of "in-jokes" for those familiar with the ND campus and history.
