The Star Tribune: "Kerrigan, in his fourth crime novel, paints a gritty, hard-on-its-luck Ireland and fills Dublin with memorable characters who would be right at home in Al Capone’s Chicago."

Date: Jan 26 2014

This import from crime novelist Gene Kerrigan is an offbeat thriller set in the Dublin underworld. Danny Callaghan has just been released from prison and is rebuilding his life when a gangster threatens to draw him into the high-risk, deadly world of rival organized criminals.

In post-financial-crisis Ireland, the economic boom is over, but crime still pays and the police can be almost as corrupt as the thugs. Kerrigan, in his fourth crime novel, paints a gritty, hard-on-its-luck Ireland and fills Dublin with memorable characters who would be right at home in Al Capone’s Chicago. As the unwitting hero, Callaghan is forced to choose among competing evils and the story advances with relentless tension.
