What the Critics Say

"[H]is most visceral, satisfying effort yet....McKinty writes masterful action scenes, and he whips up a frenzy as the bullets begin to fly." (Publishers Weekly)
"[O]utpaces its immediate predecessor, The Dead Yard...with [McKinty's] trademark dark lyricism, one great red herring, and a masterful plot twist that brings Forsythe's character full circle in a lightning flash." (Booklist)

    "Compelling"

    I loved this series from beginning to end. The author tells this story well and the character is likeable. The narrator does and excellent job as well.

    "Inspiring and addictive"

    McKinty and Doyle make an unbeatable pair. Just hearing Doyle say "Aye," speaks volumes. McKinty's characters have depth, humor and sophistication rarely found in the genre. Michael Forsythe is brought vividly to life.

    As artists, my wife and I are addicted to the series and the books have fueled many productive hours painting in our studio. Passages of my work are now permanently associated in my mind with the Michael's ruthless bloody vengeance.

    Must have more . . .

    "Awful"

    This dragged and was graphic and grizzly. Not my cup of tea and based on this I would not read another book by this author.

    "bloody fluff"

    This was the worst Audible downloads I have listened to (I have been a member for 3 years, and have listened to >40 books from Audible). It took half the book to take a plane ride from South America to Ireland. Boring, slow, pretentious, and gratuitous beyond belief. Michael is an unlikeable killer - but at least most of the many people he kills along the way to winning the heart of the mega-killer Bridget are as reprehensible as Michael himself. If you like pretentious gore, you'll love this book.
