The Killing of the Tinkers | [Ken Bruen]

The Killing of the Tinkers

Jack Taylor, a disgraced ex-cop in Galway, has slid further down the slope of despair. After a year in London he returns to his home town of Galway with a leather coat and a coke habit. Someone is systematically slaughtering young travellers and dumping their bodies in the city centre. Even in the state he's in, Jack Taylor has an uncanny ability to know where to look, what questions to ask, and with the aid of an English policeman, apparently solves the case.

    Story
    "Not sure how he does it..."

    This is crime fiction where the crimes are incidental. In other words, this is literature loosely based around some wrongdoing. The fact that these books are character driven is the key; the fact that that character is Jack Taylor is immense. Highly literate, funny, daring, rightgeous and usually pissed, JT is great company.
    On to book 3.

    "Oddly compelling"

    This is the first Ken Bruen book I've listened to and I came straight off Adrian McKinty and Stuart Neville, looking for something similar. This is not. It has a kind of who cares attitude right down to the ending. It's full of excess and the results of it and makes no apologies.
    I liked the characters they were interesting and you felt for them, but the story has a weird pace. It spent a lot of time up front and all of a sudden it ended. Still if you are in it for the journey as opposed to a succinct destination it's a colourful jaunt. I'm downloading two more right now, prepared to give Ken a couple more tries.
