This gripping Irish thriller is an intriguing new departure for comic noir writer Declan Burke.
Born in Sligo, Ireland, Declan Burke now lives in Co Wicklow. A freelance writer and journalist, his novels have been described as 'Irish screwball noir.' He is a regular contributor to The Sunday Times, Irish Times and the Sunday Independent, and hosts a website devoted to crime fiction called Crime Always Pays. In 2012, he won the Goldsboro Last Laugh Award with ABSOLUTE ZERO COOL.
"Readers will be rewarded with an unholy Chinese box of a thriller. Make that an Irish-German box. " Kirkus Reviews "Burke, shows again that he's not just a comic genius, but also a fine dramatic writer and storyteller" Booklist "Burke has a real knack for dialogue and phrasing" Publishers Weekly
