Description

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.show more

Flap copy

"Ken Bruen confirms his rightful place among the finest noir stylists of his generation. This is a remarkable book from a singular talent." - "Publisher's Weekly "(starred review) "Bruen is a brilliant, lyrical, deeply moving writer who can make you laugh and cry in the same paragraph and whose characters are so sharply portrayed that they almost walk off the page at you. If you like Ian Rankin, Dennis Lehane, Pelecanos, and the like, Bruen is definitely a writer to reckon with." -"Denver Post" "Bruen is an original, grimly hilarious and gloriously Irish. I await the further adventures of the incorrigible Jack Taylor." -Patrick Anderson, "Washington Post" "The next major new Irish voice we hear might well belong to Ken Bruen." -"Chicago Tribune"show more
