Michael has survived his infiltration of an IRA splinter cell in Boston, and now, his many near fatal wounds healed, he begins his next adventure as manager of hotel security in Lima, Peru. It is there that he is contacted by Bridget, whose fiancé he killed.
Bridget, calling from Dublin, says that her 11-year-old daughter has been kidnapped. Michael's choice is to fly to Dublin and help her find the girl, or be executed at the hands of Bridget's goons, who are holding him at gunpoint. He agrees to nothing, but is soon on the way to Dublin, leaving the first two of many dead bodies in his wake.

"[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)
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.
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 . . .
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.
