Belfast, 1985. Gunrunners on the borders, riots in the cities, The Power of Love on the radio. And somehow, in the middle, Detective Inspector Sean Duffy is hanging on, a Catholic policeman in the hostile Royal Ulster Constabulary. Duffy is initially left cold by the murder of a wealthy couple, shot dead while watching TV. And when their troubled son commits suicide, leaving a note that appears to take responsibility for the deaths, it seems the case is closed. But something doesn't add up, and people keep dying. Soon Duffy is on the trail of a mystery that will pit him against shadowy US intelligence forces, and take him into the white-hot heart of the biggest political scandal of the decade.

Fluent and fast-paced * Sunday Times * A superb satire of its time and place. * Irish Times * Adrian McKinty is back with the same perceptive commentary on social conditions and an acute awareness of political realities in the Belfast of the eighties ... Lucky for us there must be plenty of unresolved crimes, even in a backwater like Carrickfergus, for Inspector Duffy to tackle and for McKinty to turn into further gripping episodes. * Irish Independent * Gun Street Girl's roots in historical fact render it a superb satire of its time and place. -- Declan Burke * Irish Times * McKinty, with his machine-gun prose and cold hard characters, drops us slam-bang into the racing heart of the fourth Sean Duffy thriller. Strap yourself in. * RTE Guide * This is a first-rate crime-thriller that commands attention from the opening pages * Sydney Morning Herald * Duffy always reminds me of one of Iain Banks's jaded-but-idealistic narrator-heroes, and not just because of the protagonist's taste for pharmaceutical-grade cocaine. Anyone missing their Banks fix should give McKinty a go. -- John O'Connell * Guardian * Gun Street Girl revels in the farce that was the past to deliver a stellar crime novel for the present. Simply outstanding. * Sydney Morning Herald * McKinty's Troubles-set tales of sarky Belfast cop Sean Duffy are becoming one of the great crime series ... Brilliant * The Sun * Books of the Year: McKinty is belatedly beginning to enjoy the recognition he deserves -- Chris Mullin * Observer *
