Inhaltsangabe: A dark and unexpected novel about a Dublin undertaker who finds himself onthe wrong side ofthe Irish mob.
Paddy Buckley is a grieving widower who has worked for years for Gallagher s, a long-established some say the best funeral home in Dublin. One night driving home after an unexpected encounter with a client, Paddy hits a pedestrian crossing the street. He pulls over and gets out of his car, intending to do the right thing. As he bends over to help the man, he recognizes him. It s Donal Cullen, brother of one of the most notorious mobsters in Dublin. And he s dead.
Shocked and scared, Paddy jumps back in his car and drives away before anyone notices what s happened.
The next morning, the Cullen family calls Gallagher s to oversee the funeral arrangements. Paddy, to his dismay, is given the task of meeting with the grieving Vincent Cullen, Dublin s crime boss, and Cullen s entourage. When events go awry, Paddy is plunged into an unexpected eddy of intrigue, deceit, and treachery.
By turns a thriller, a love story, and a black comedy of ill manners, The Last Four Days of Paddy Buckley is a surprising, compulsively readable debut novel.

"Jeremy Massey does for Ireland what Carl Hiaasen does for Florida."
The Charlotte Observer
"This is what we call anightstand book at our house: It will joyfully make its way from my nightstand to my husband's. The gifted Jeremy Massey hascreated a complex, fascinating and hilarious Irishman in Paddy Buckley, the delightful center of a novel brimming with passion, humor, poetry and wisdom that only comes from the Emerald Isle, where the best stories are born."
Adriana Trigiani, author of The New York Times-bestseller The Shoemaker's Wife
Jeremy Massey puts a fresh and intriguing spin on the Irish crime novel with the tale of an ordinary man drawn into a deadly conflict with a Dublin mob boss. The Last Four Days of Paddy Buckley is both a cleverly constructed thriller and an unforgettable story of friendship, love, and loyalty. It s sharply written, darkly comic, and full of heart.
Harry Dolan, author of the New York Times bestseller Bad Things Happen
"[An] intelligent and suspenseful debut novel ... A hilarious funeral home scam and a quirky dead body mix-up add to this exciting, morbid tale."
Publishers Weekly
Highly readable and entertaining the novel benefits especially from Massey's mostly restrained, deadpan Irish sense of humor.
Kirkus Reviews

[Massey s] dark and zany humor is anchored by some serious reflection. " --Library Journal
