The eighth novel in the award-winning Jack Taylor series by Ireland's most acclaimed crime-writer.
Ken Bruen was born in Galway, Ireland. After turning down a place at RADA, and completing a doctorate in Metaphysics, he spent 25 years as an English teacher in Africa, Japan, South East Asia and South America. An unscheduled stint in a Brazilian prison where he suffered physical and mental abuse spurred him to write and, after a brief spell teaching in London, he returned to Galway, where he now lives with his daughter.

"A fast-paced tale of black arts and white lies" * RTE Guide *
"Unfailingly electric" * The Herald *
"The perfect antidote to any dreary days on your holiday, The Devil will spice things up in no time" * Galway Now *
