    It's the early 1980s in Belfast. Sean Duffy, a conflicted Catholic cop in the Protestant RUC (Royal Ulster Constabulary), is recruited by MI5 to hunt down Dermot McCann, an IRA master bomber who has made a daring escape from the notorious Maze prison. In the course of his investigations, Sean discovers a woman who may hold the key to Dermot's whereabouts; she herself wants justice for her daughter who died in mysterious circumstances in a pub locked from the inside.

    B.J. says: "Great conclusion to a terrific trilogy."
    "BOOK OF THE YEAR!!!"

    What did you love best about In the Morning I'll Be Gone?

    I'm not a fan of detective novels, but when McKinty creates a good cop that's pissed off and backed into a corner I'm coming along for the ride. This novel was everything I had hoped it would be, gritty, action-packed and full of nasty surprises.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of In the Morning I'll Be Gone?

    No spoilers from me. A good cop, feed up with a gangster attitude. He’s willing and able to give bottom feeders their own medicine. The plot rockets along at a frantic pace, I just couldn’t get enough. The trilogy was simply brilliant with a gripping ending that left me stunned. What a gift, thank you Mr. McKinty.


    What about Gerard Doyle’s performance did you like?

    Gerard Doyle brought every character to life, putting on an amazing performance that felt like theater and not an audio book.


    Any additional comments?

    Irish crime fiction at its best.
