I hadn’t been feeling too sunny anyway but the trajectory was suddenly a lot steeper. Maybe because he’d put a label on it. I began to feel like I was splitting apart. Huge chunks of anxiety began to break free inside me and rise to the surface, like an iceberg calving. Everything looked ugly and pointy and strange, and it was like.

He´s vanished from his house in Mercy Close and it´s vital that he´s found – Laddz have a sell-out comeback gig in five days´ time. Things ended messily with Jay. And she´s never going back there. Besides she has a new boyfriend now, the very sexy detective Artie Devlin and it´s all going well, even though his ex-wife isn´t quite ´ex´ enough and his teenage son hates her. But the reappearance of Jay is stirring up all kinds of stuff she thought she´d left behind.

Watermelon introduced the Walsh family in 1995 featuring Claire, while subsequent titles focused on her sisters, Rachel ( Rachel's Holiday), Maggie ( Angels) and Anna (Anybody Out There?). I was excited to discover that with The Mystery of Mercy Close, Marian Keyes, after a six year gap, features the last of the sisters, Helen. The youngest of the siblings Helen Walsh has proved to be acerbic, strong-willed and a little eccentric during her cameo appearances in her sister's books.

I have a love hate relationship with Marion Keyes. In other words I love some of her books and find others unreadable. About 50 percent either way. This one I loved. Having read other books in the series I expected to dislike Helen, but I found her deeply engaging with a surprisingly strong sense of right and wrong.

Having recently read several of this writers books I find it strange the way Keyes books are sold. They are presented as frothy women’s reads. While the leads are female and are often obsessed with clothes and makeup, the impediments to happiness are usual serious. Depression, death, addiction and physical abuse are often what stands in the way of happiness with men sometimes the trigger and sometimes the prize. I think that’s why I liked this one so much. The man in the case was icing on the cake, Helen’s real struggle was with herself.

It’s impressive to me that Marian Keyes can write so many books from the first person perspective and yet keep each voice unique—that’s not easy to do. This character might not be for everyone, but I found the main character, Helen, hilarious from previous books and just as funny here. An example Helen’s thoughts: “I have a habit of taking instant dislikes to people, simply because it saves time.”

I wouldn’t recommend starting with this as your first book of Keyes, and while it’s not my favorite, it’s still outstanding. I know from real life how challenging it is dealing with someone who is battling depression, so you wouldn’t think reading an entire novel from the point of view of a depressed person would be an enjoyable way to spend your time, but Helen makes amusing observations about doctors and pharmaceutical companies and the way other people deal with someone who is depressed. I had fun with the mystery as well, and admired Helen for her tenacity. I chuckled frequently and I liked having a character that was flawed but capable, even if taking care of herself and others sometimes meant having to ask for help.

The One Sentence Summary: A private investigator struggling with depression is hired by her ex-boyfriend to locate the missing member of a boyband just days before their reunion concert.

The Meat and Potatoes: The Mystery of Mercy Close centers on Helen Walsh, a struggling private investigator in Dublin. The recession has hit her business hard and she’s even had to move back in with her parents. So when her ex-boyfriend shows up offering to pay her whatever she wants to locate Wayne Diffney, the recently disappeared member of an Irish boyband, she can’t say no. But her ex-boyfriend Jay Parker doesn’t exactly bring back fond memories, and Helen is beginning to have a relapse of the crushing depression that had affected her years earlier. She dives into the job, mostly to keep her mind off her increasingly worrisome emotional state. During the course of the investigation she drifts further from friends and family, and closer to Wayne, a man she doesn’t even know.

The novel is written in the first person, past tense from the perspective of Helen Walsh. The chapters bounce back and forth between Helen’s activities in the present and her reminiscing about the past. We get the background information almost as you would in real life—something in the present relates to a past event, and Helen explores that for us for awhile before returning us to the task at hand. The key information is spaced well throughout the book so we remain curious; Helen keeps secrets ‘til the very end.

The Mystery of Mercy Close—as many of Marian Keyes’s novels—manages to blend comedy, drama, mystery, and romance all in one. The “mystery” of where Wayne has disappeared to is actually quite engaging. The members of the Irish boyband aren’t as well-off as their 90s superstardom would have people think, and they have put together a series of reunion shows to earn a little money. Five days before their first concert though, Wayne disappears without a word. If they don’t find him, the shows will be cancelled and they’ll be out tons of money. So where did Wayne go? To his family? Friends? Out of the country? Was he kidnapped? Murdered? Helen follows the clues in her unique, socially awkward way, and Marian Keyes manages to keep us guessing.

The Praiseworthy: The characters, including the absent character of Wayne, are well-constructed and interesting. The descriptions of the boyband members (the cute one, the talented one, the gay one, the wacky one, and the other one) strike both a chord and a funny bone of readers who were devotees of any 90s boyband. A few of these are a bit predictable, but they are the minor characters and it doesn’t distract from the story. Helen is a terrific character, and after four other books in which she plays a minor role, it’s great to see things from her perspective. She dislikes people as a rule and tends to blurt out whatever comes into her head, with her only worry being that offending people tends to make the job harder. Marian Keyes manages to make Helen both likeable and objectionable at the same time.

The Shortcomings: Through the course of the story Helen tells the reader of her previous bout with depression as she sinks back into a new one. As someone who suffers from depression, certain of Helen’s behaviors and thoughts really rang true to me, while others I found hard to imagine. While depression usually results in a lack of desire to do anything, Helen’s depression seems to be her only motivation in the story. She constantly keeps herself going to avoid her own thoughts. The author sidesteps this contradiction by having Helen reflect on the fact that her depression manifests differently than most people’s. I’m sure there are people out there who are affected this way, but I found it a bit distracting.

The Verdict: I would recommend The Mystery of Mercy Close to readers who enjoy off-beat stories with strong female characters and a hint of mystery.
