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.

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.
