Review

Irish American News
You'll enjoy a great sprawling book that is filled with action, mysteries and surprises.

Irish News
If there is such a thing as a paramilitary romp, then McAllister - authorof two previous novels featuring Station Sergeant Barlow - has nailedit.
The dialogue is as sharp as a Stanley knife, the action is aspacked as a punch, the plot twists like a potholed country road and thebody count is rising.
Doc doesn't mind killing people. In fact, Docgets twitchy when he hasn't a target in mind. He has been ordered by onfaction of the Organization to track down a disgraced politician andkill him. However, he faces a conflict of loyalty as a rival faction,led by Doc's brother Jimmy, wants to interrogate the elusive politician.
Then there are the women who Doc thinks he should kill to maintainhis 'integrity' - his runaway wife and Connie, who withholds information about the politician's whereabouts.
Set in a slightly alternativeNorthern Ireland, where history seems to have split off at a tangent,Pursuit races faster than a greyhound around a dog track for a big raceand the inevitable showdown.

About the Author

John is married with two children. He is one of the "doggy" McAllisters from Ballymena, Northern Ireland. For almost three decades he worked weekends and holidays on his uncle's farm, which had eighteen cattle and 70 greyhounds. His uncle's trophy cabinet contained every major cup, including the English Derby.John's "real" job was that as an Accountant in Practice in Northern Ireland through all of the recent Troubles. He lost count of the number of times his own premises were bombed - from a 'good rattle' to total wipe-out.People used laughter to get them through those darkest of times, a humour that is reflected in John's writing.

The character (The Station Sergeant) is a joy, and if McAllister doesn't bring usmore of his adventures, the crime genre will be a poorer place for it. The Sunday Times
McAllister's laconic narrative... carries astrong charge of authenticity. The Guardian
McAllister's command of plot and breakneckpacing is impressive. Black MountainReview
McAllister's stripped down, straightforwardprose exquisitely captures the feel of a bygone era and the down-to-earthpeople who inhabited it. Elizabeth AWhite Syndication
A naturally gifted storyteller. Hot Press
Instinct for writing... that can't be taught- UKA Press
McAllister knows his characters and hislandscape like a master storyteller. GlennMeade, novelist
A fresh outlook from an Irish author we aresure to hear more about. Kevin A Hart
I particularly appreciated the occasionalbarb of typical Northern Ireland acerbic wit and sarcasm among the dialogue. Kilmakeeon
