Gun Street Girl: A Detective Sean Duffy Novel
Belfast, 1985, in the midst of the “Troubles”: Detective Sean Duffy, a Catholic cop in the Protestant Royal Ulster Constabulary, struggles with burn-out as he investigates a brutal double murder and suicide.

Book Description

Young, beautiful, thirty-year-old Emma Wilson arrives by taxi in a small tourist town at 7:55 a.m. Her clothes are filthy, her appearance disheveled. She has no purse, no wallet, no luggage, but her back pocket is stuffed with hundred dollar bills. She's also carrying a credit card belonging to Jack Russell, the town's most eligible bachelor, who hasn't been seen for a month.

Claiming to be Jack's fiance', Emma immediately moves into his expensive lake house. The local sheriff gets a bad feeling that only turns worse when he discovers Emma's ID belongs to a dead woman.

2.0 out of 5 stars Locke's first disappointing book December 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It felt weird reading this book. The tone was off for a John Locke book. And the ending... well, there was no ending. It wasn't even a cliffhanger. It was like Locke just chopped off the back half of the book.

Really disappointing.

I am a huge fan of John Locke, l anxiously await his every new book release. I enjoy the wacky,"Murphy's Law" stories, but this book seemed like floor sweepings of every over the top ,disgusting, idiotic,idea Locke ever had. You can skip this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars John Locke Has Lost It January 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is an exceedingly poor effort--and I hesitate to use the word "effort." A sophomoric plot full of unbeliveable coincidences leads us to a sudden end that leaves the primary plot lines hanging unresolved in empty space. Locke is forcing us to buy two books to get one actual novel, and a disappointing one at that. Bah, I say. Shame on you, Mr. Locke. Good thing your books are cheap, but you once wrote good cheap ones.

I have enjoyed John Lockes books but at 99 cents , this one was overpriced. Free would have been a bad deal! He can do better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't enjoy this one January 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a Locke fan and read every book as soon as it hits Kindle and love most of his books......but this one was overkill on "torture" and just a "filler" to what will be the next book. Way too much time devoted to torturous acts instead of developing a good story line. Hey John, what were you thinking?????

2.0 out of 5 stars Torn December 27, 2012
By jrick
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really don't know what to say. (Which, translated, means I have a lot to say!) The technical aspects of the writing are excellent, which is more than I can say for most self-published authors. Actually, for correct grammar and punctuation, Mr Locke is most likely the best I've read. It's a real pleasure not to have the distractions of basic English usage mistakes. Complaints? I don't like serials. Series characters are fine. Makes you feel like you're with old friends. But a book should have a climax followed by an denoument (not too long) wrapping everything up (for the present). Nothing is wrapped up in this book. No climax; no denoument. Kinda like real life. I don't need real life when I read escapist literature!

But my biggest complaint was the hog farm. Sure the hog farm was an inventive idea. At least it was when Jack Higgins did it in his books. But for Locke to do it was derivative (at best). And so much gore? Written for people with sadistic, teenage minds. (or was that redundant?) Nope, all-in-all not a good book for John Locke.

1.0 out of 5 stars They should pay you to read this drivel....... February 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a terrible book. One of the worst I've read. I was a John Locke fan -no more! This is a bizarre series of events, riddled with over the top, gratuitous gore and violence. Assuming at some point a cohesive plot would develop, I finished the book. I was wrong.

There is no ending. No conclusion. No finality. Practically in mid-sentence the book stops. All the main characters are left standing where they were, as if Locke fell asleep and woke up thinking he had finished it.

Please don't waste your time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing...... January 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was not a typical Locke book, something just didn't come across in this book. The characters were the same ones he uses in the Dani Ripper and Box books, oh yeah, except they have different names. The book was just too dark and felt a little like Silence of the Lambs/ Hannibal Lector! I don't know....I have been waiting for a new Donovan Creed book, since Locke left us with a cliffhanger over the summer, but Kill Jill was a total miss for me. I definitely will not read any more of the books in this series. Felt like it was a push to put something out even if there was no inspiration....
