    Story

    The accidental deaths of two students appear random, tragic events, except that in each case a copy of a book by John Millington Synge is found beneath the body. Jack begins to believe that "The Dramatist", a calculating killer, is out there, enticing him to play. As the case twists and turns Jack's refuge, the city of Galway, now demands he sacrifice the only love he's maintained, and while Iraq burns, he seems a step away from the abyss.

    G.R. says: "Standard Bruen fare full of J and Guards"

    What did you like best about The Dramatist? What did you like least?

    Best was the sober Jack Taylor, worst was the portrayal of the Gardaí in ignoring obvious clues found with bodies and the non realistic ease that Jack had in getting hold of evidence.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Ending came in a rush - would have preferred a bit more build up


    What does Gerry O'Brien bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Gerry O'Brien is the whole reason I listen to Bruen books (I have never read one). O'Briens use of inflection, tone and accent creates realistic characters and scenes.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probabaly not however it would be good to see how close my mental image of the characters is to the chosen actors.


    Any additional comments?

    Reasonable effort and typical Bruen fare. Especially good if you have been to Galway
