Review

Pray for Us Sinners is written with heartfelt urgency to explain Ulster rather than demonize the place and the population. A deeply felt thriller and a very valuable one.” ―The Globe and Mail

“Flawlessly researched and . . . nails the chips-and-guns-with-everything atmosphere of violence in mid-1970s Ulster.” ―Quill & Quire on Pray for Us Sinners

--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I am a big fan of Patrick Taylor's writing. His books don't glorify "the troubles" but they do memorialize them. I have read nearly everything Patrick Taylor has written. I highly recommend this writer. Now and In the Hour of Our Death will make you laugh, cry and cause frustration but you will never find this work boring!!

I found this fictional account of the troubles in Ireland to be as near to reality as one can get. The "F" word was used more than I cared for, but having been to the "olde sod", I know it is the way folks talk. I enjoyed the book.

The ending to "Pray for US sinners" was such a sudden shocker that there needed to be a follow up and I'm glad Patrick wrote this one. It put an ending to the story that had gripped me, I want to find out what happened to them all. These two books tell a good tale but also help the readers get some insight into the deep problems of Northern Ireland. It is to bad some readers are shocked about reading about the war and the swearing. I would recommend having a few pints with someone from that era. You would find out the word F*** is used like the word "like" by teens. It is just how they talk. War is ugly and one should probably not read these books if you do not like gritty action thrillers. The books does put our safe and gentle life into prescriptive; gosh that line at the mall was terrible and it took 5 minutes to find a parking spot close to the door. Thanks Patrick they are tragic tales that make me want to visit Ireland.

Patrick Taylor is a superb writer. Not only does he understand "the troubles" in Ireland, but he understands human nature and feelings, and has the ability to express these understandings in writing. The reader is transported into the lives of the characters, and the history of the times in which they live. The human element is the focus; Patrick Taylor succeeds for the most part in being "neutral", and does not take sides politically, but focuses on the characters and their feelings about the lives they have to live and the decisions they have to make.

Patrick Taylor brings unique background to this historical fiction novel. He spent many years in Ireland before moving to where he now lives. He has certainly done the research necessary to make this a thrilling story of patriotism and the realism of wartime.
I cannot praise his work enough.

If you read Pray for Us Sinners then you MUST read this. Perhaps I am a bit biased as my family originated in Northern Ireland and I well remember experiencing "the troubles". Thank you Patrick Taylor for another great read!

I could hardly put this book down. Many evenings I was engrossed in Patrick Taylor's tale.

I would recommend this book to everyone. Remember to read the first part of the story told in Pray For Us Sinners.

Well worth your time.

It connects its history with the present and dreams of the future for Ireland. I did not understand the Irish language but that showed the author's pride in his country in that he used it. I hope the author writes more books like this, but puts a glossary in it.
