PRAISE FOR THE PREVIOUS DETECTIVE SEAN DUFFY NOVELS:
"["The Cold Cold Ground"] is the best crime novel mystery that I've read in a long time. [McKinty is] a great writer.
NPR s Nancy Pearl
McKinty s novels are also shot through with a smart, crackling humor that manages to be both dark and witty.... Each book is a solid standalone, but it s even better to ride the entire trilogy roller coaster with Duffy as your intimate companion.... [Sean Duffy] is utterly and pleasurably human."
This powerful conclusion to the Troubles trilogy is guaranteed to leave readers wondering what particular brand of authorial sadism motivated McKinty to abbreviate this full-sensory tour of 1980s Belfast with only a trilogy. The Troubles first two novels were exceptionally smart police procedurals, and McKinty applies the same expertise here, contrasting a classic locked-room puzzle with the gritty, violent Belfast backdrop.
"Booklist "STARRED REVIEW (reviewing "In the Morning I ll Be Gone")
A razor-sharp thriller set against the backdrop of a country in chaos, told with style, courage, and dark-as-night wit. . . . An utterly brilliant novel with its own unique voice.

"I Hear the Sirens in the Street" blew my bloody doors off!

PRAISE FOR THE DETECTIVE SEAN DUFFY NOVELS:
When it comes to Northern Irish crime fiction, Adrian McKinty forged the path the rest of us follow. The Sean Duffy series is the culmination of a career spent examining our darkest moments, and McKinty is the only crime writer who can do justice to our singular history.

"RT BOOK REVIEWS""
It s just the same things over and again for Sean Duffy: riot duty, heartbreak, cases he can solve but never get to court. But what detective gets two locked-room mysteries in one career?
When journalist Lily Bigelow is found dead in the courtyard of Carrickfergus castle, it looks like a suicide. Yet there are just a few things that bother Duffy enough to keep the case file open. Which is how he finds out that she was working on a devastating investigation of corruption and abuse at the highest levels of power in the UK and beyond.
And so Duffy has two impossible problems on his desk: Who killed Lily Bigelow? And what were they trying to hide?"
