The new novel by the author of The Midnight Choir
WINNER of the 2012 Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger Award
Vincent Naylor, just released from jail, resumes doing what he does best: planning for a high stakes robbery. Bob Tidey, an honest policeman, discouraged by his colleagues' deals with criminals and about to commit perjury, is investigating the murder of one of Dublin's many suspect bankers. A call from an old acquaintance will change the course of his investigation. Maura Coady, a retired nun living on regrets and bad memories, notices something that she can't ignore and makes a phone call that will set in motion a series of fateful events. The Rage is a finely crafted literary crime fiction that will appeal to readers of Michael Connelly and Dennis Lehane. Set in contemporary Ireland it is as socially aware as it is entertaining, as artful as it is exciting.
Gene Kerrigan is the author of The Midnight Choir and the CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning novel, The Rage. He lives in Dublin.
