Review quote

'These flawlessly structured yarns are told in lovingly crafted prose.' The Times; 'His sentences are blessed with an energetic imperative. His pacing is faultless, as is his choreography of violence.' Times Literary Supplement; 'The Irishman's stories are artful indeed - with a rolling, gathering cadence that is mesmerising.' The Economist
