About the Author

The critically acclaimed author of thirteen previous Jack Taylor novels and The White Trilogy, he is the recipient of two Barry Awards and two Shamus Awards and has twice been a finalist for the Edgar Award.

Reviews

'[Bruen] is an Emerald noir maestro' Sunday Independent.
'Widely regarded as one of Ireland's most original voices in crime fiction, Ken Bruen's dark Jack Taylor novels - delivered in precise, skeletal prose - have won critical plaudits and myriad fans around the world ... his latest chapter in Taylor's life is a bleak, gripping slice of noir Irish life, but as good a read as you'll come across this year' Irish Independent.
'Wonderfully evocative of Ireland, this is a gritty, brutal tale told with its author's typical lyricism' Daily Mail.
'Ken Bruen, from his blistering debut The Guards, has created a Galway febrile with menace' RTE Guide.
'An explosion of wit, repartee, murder, vigilantism and pandemonium ... Long-running series can often lose their way; not a bit of it here. This may well be the best Jack Taylor in many a year and that's saying something - fast, funny, cleverly plotted and hard hitting' Nudge Book.
'Exudes a nihilistic thrill in smashing the crime fiction conventions to smithereens' Irish Times.
'For those who like their crime novels gritty, grimy and pure, pure Galway' Connaught Telegraph.
'Particularly for those looking for a re-acquaintance with the Irish identity; dark-as-sin humour is included ... The main strength of this novel comes from the protagonist Jack himself, a character unabashedly seeped in the Irish zeitgeist and noir-styled melancholy ... The impressively well-characterised Jack will guide you through with an engaged mind and a wry smile' Irish Examiner.
