Reviews

WINNER! 2014 Ned Kelly Award - Best Fiction Praise for the Detective Sean Duffy novels: "The best crime novel that I've read in a long time. . . . [McKinty is] a great writer. " -NANCY PEARL, NPR, on The Cold Cold Ground "A dark-humored shamus in the Phillip Marlowe tradition, [Sean Duffy] is . . . buoyed through the murderous chaos by his love of classical, punk, and new-wave music, the Greek philosopher Epicurus, and frothy pints of Guinness." -WALL STREET JOURNAL "A razor-sharp thriller set against the backdrop of a country in chaos, told with style, courage, and dark-as-night wit. . . . An utterly brilliant novel with its own unique voice." -STUART NEVILLE, author of Ratlines, on The Cold Cold Ground Praise for In the Morning I'll Be Gone: "This is the third in the series and, for me, the best, for it contains a locked room mystery at the heart of a drama about a major terrorist escape from the Maze prison, Belfast in 1983. Written in spare, razor-sharp prose, and leading up to a denouement that creeps up on you and then explodes like a terrorist bomb, it places McKinty firmly in the front rank of modern crime writers." -THE DAILY MAIL, London "Driven by McKinty's brand of lyrical, hard-boiled prose, leavened by a fatalistic strain of the blackest humour, In the Morning I'll Be Gone is a hugely satisfying historical thriller." -THE IRISH TIMES "Powerful. . . . The Troubles' first two novels were exceptionally smart police procedurals, and McKinty applies the same expertise here, contrasting a classic locked-room puzzle with the gritty, violent Belfast backdrop." -BOOKLIST STARRED REVIEW "A locked room mystery within a manhunt killer [is] a clever and gripping set-up that helps makes Duffy's third outing easily his best so far." -THE SUNDAY TIMES, London WINNER! 2014 Ned Kelly Award - Best Fiction Praise for the Detective Sean Duffy novels: The best crime novel that I've read in a long time. . . .
