Wow! This book will certainly keep you guessing! The twist is expected, among other aspects. I loved the bit of Irish "Tinker" history the writer provides the reader with. I definitely recommend this book!
I love this writer's style and descriptions of Irish life. This storyline was intriguing with a beautiful ending.
Wow! Adrian McKinty is brilliant. Gerard Doyle is brilliant. Together they make one hell of a team and this collaboration is another absolutely fabulous book! I saw 3am, 4am, and 5am as I finished this. McKinty's books, for me, are totally unputdownable!
After Michael Forsyth, I wasn't sure there'd be another character as strong and, dare I say it, likable. But Killian is that indeed. The plot is described elsewhere but suffice it to say that Killian makes a good "enforcer" with smarts and intelligence.
McKinty gives us an insider look at the travelers, the Pavees. Killian gets to be the "Prodigal Son" and return to his roots.
Yes, there is violence but we've come to expect that.
I loved little Sue. The relationship between her and Killian was sweet.
Now, that ending! I like them both. Anxiously hoping for a sequel.
All the regular characters back in Ireland, involved in a plot loaded with twists and a few edge of your seat moments.
A very good read in true Mckinty from. Gerard Doyle great as always.
As always, Adrian Mckinty delivers memorable characters and Gerard Doyle brings them to life. This reread was as good as the first.
Just under ten hours of listening, narrated by Gerard Doyle.
This is a novel narrated with an Irish accent, and unless/until you get used to the cadence, some listeners might find it annoying. Most sentences end with a raised inflection, like a question. Suggest that you listen to the Audible sample before making the investment. If I had, I probably would not have purchased this book, the reading was ’not my cup ‘o tea' … but, it is a good mystery.
Falling Glass is a tale surrounding the escape of a woman and her children from her husband, a wealthy businessman. The woman learns, accidentally, that the man has a dangerous past … no spoilers, but that past is revealed about mid-way through the story. The man hires a tinker-turned-investigaor to hunt her down, and he ultimately becomes her protector.
Falling Glass is a good mystery, albeit not a page-turning thriller. You know who-done-it right out of the chute, the journey to a satisfying conclusion is a curl-up-on-the-sofa Agatha Christie-type story. Recommended with a ‘listen to the sample first’ warning.
