Kevin Power attended University College, Dublin, and lives in Dublin. He was shortlisted in 2007 for RTE's Francis McManus Award. He is in his late twenties and this is his first novel.
July 2010 Debut of the Month. This is not a who-dunit but a why and how. It concerns the death of a teenager outside a Dublin night club. What makes this special is the dissection of all involved for this is no gangland or deprived youth crime but one perpetrated by privileged private school boys. Probing the affected families and their society is masterfully done. An impressive first novel. Comparison: Neil Cross, Jo-Anne Goodwin, Chris Cleave.
