Editorial Reviews

Review

“A tech-savvy, raw-edgy police-cum-press procedural with more twists than an Irish tall tale…”Publishers Weekly

“Deeply satisfying…”Kirkus Reviews

Dublin Dead is a solid procedural…and O’Donovan skillfully amps up the pace.”—Thomas Gaughan, Booklist

About the Author

Gerard O’Donovan was born in Cork and grew up in Dublin. After a brief career in the Irish civil service he traveled widely, working as a barman, bookseller, gherkin-bottler, philosophy tutor, and English teacher before settling down to make a living as a journalist and critic for The Sunday Times and The Daily Telegraph, among other publications. In 2007 he was shortlisted for the Crime Writers Association’s Debut Dagger competition.

Format: Hardcover
Novels about the drug trade are a dime a dozen. Don Winslow has written some great ones. His The Power of the Dog is one of the best. Which is to say that this one, Dublin Dead, is not. The plot can be hard to follow, the characters less than mesmerizing, and the Irish drug trade not so interesting, at least to me. The author's first novel is worth a read, and I did give this one 3 stars, so, if you need to read a drug novel....

I loved this guy's first thriller The Priest and this is even better - a totally absorbing Irish mystery with his likable cop Mike Mulcahy forced again to get it together with Dublin reporter Siobhan Fallon to uncover the connection between a dead realtor, a missing woman and a ruthless drugs gang. It's a real page turner with a great flavor of post-boom Ireland while building to a genius - totally surprising - finale. I make it one of my books of the year.

I read "The Priest", O'Donovan's first book. Part of the draw is that I have an Irish heritage, but have never been to Ireland. I liked the intrigue and the relationship between the principle characters. Although not really a sequel to "The Priest", I think you can enjoy "Dublin Dead" more with the knowledge of the first novel. I hope O'Donovan continues with more novels.

Really liked the 'Priest'....this one didn't compare and it kept referring back to the previous book..I would prefer if it was a stand alone. The end was a bit far fetched too
