I enjoyed the book, but I thought the story got a bit lost in back and forth of characters. I have the next one in the series and hoping for better. But a descent read.Published 4 months ago by B. Commiskey

I bought this after watching the Jack Taylor TV series. While it is quite different from the TV adaptation, it is still a beautifully told crime novel.Published 4 months ago by Booklady
This Irish crime writer is terrific. His creation, Jack Taylor, is irresistible. Discovered this series from
friend in England. Have to read them all now.
Everyone of Ken Bruen's jack Taylor books should be required reading for adults.Published 5 months ago by Patrick M O'Donnell
Ok for a quick read. Not much depth. The television series is better...sad but true. Not great or excellent writing.Published 5 months ago by italianice
