The new 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 unsheduled 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.
"Hard hitting... a remarkable series" * Publishers Weekly * "Headstone is an excellent addition to the Jack Taylor series" * Philadelphia Inquirer * "Ken Bruen is brilliant. While Headstone is the stuff of nightmares, it is also the stuff of redemption, even at great cost. You will feel wrung out after reading this one, but all the gladder for it" * Bookreporter * "Headstone is one of the year's best reading pleasures" -- David J. Montgomery, Crime Fiction Dossier "Bruen is threatening to become a mass cult figure in the US as well as a critical favourite" -- Allen Barra, The Atlantic
