Reviews

A U.S. senator is set to visit Donegal, Ireland, for the opening of a gold mine, and Devlin is made personally responsible for his safety. Then the discovery of a gold nugget in the local river results in a gold rush with ugly consequences. In his third outing (after Borderlands and Gallows Lane), Devlin never does anything halfway and gets himself in trouble with everyone. VERDICT McGilloway is definitely a writer to watch. Dark but not as pessimistic as Ken Bruen and Declan Hughes, his action-packed stories feature great characters and evoke a strong sense of modern Ireland. [Library marketing.] (c) Copyright 2010.

In McGilloway's stellar third Inspector Devlin mystery (after 2009's Gallows Lane), the Garda inspector fails to prevent political activist Leon Bradley, whom Devlin knew as a kid, from taking a shot with a fake gun at Cathal Hagan, a former U.S. senator with Irish ties, who's the keynote speaker at the opening of the Orcas gold mine near Devlin's hometown of Lifford in the Borderlands. Despite getting suspended for two weeks, Devlin continues to sniff around both the mine and a bank heist he was investigating before Hagan's arrival in which an illegal Chechen immigrant was killed. With the reluctant help of Insp. Jim Hendry, his counterpart in the North, Devlin digs deeper into Bradley's life and the treacherous journey of illegal immigrants who hope to get a piece of the "Celtic Tiger." A rising star in the world of Irish crime fiction, McGilloway has created a doggedly persistent hero in Devlin. (Sept.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
