Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Tension and foreboding seem to ooze from every page of this beautifully written thriller. Set mostly in the Irish border country, it displays a dark, bleak area of poverty and despair. Centring on the trafficking of Eastern European young women, one of whom is found to be involved in the suspicious death of a successful Irish businessman, this thought-provoking tale brings in all aspects of this no-man’s land. With vivid characterisation and beautiful descriptive writing, this is a compelling read.

If you like Anthony Quinn you might also like to read books by Stuart Neville, Declan Hughes and M. L. Stedman.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Authors tend to like to have their egos stroked, and Anthony Quinn has been enjoying such attention more than most for his remarkably well-written novels. In Border Angels, a charred corpse and a set of footprints in the snow direct Quinn’s protagonist Inspector Celcius Daly into the dark world of people trafficking. Daly is on the trail of a missing woman, Lena Novak, who has disappeared one winter’s night along the Irish border leaving behind only the bodies of two men. Soon, Daly finds himself working with a prostitute and a hit man in an increasingly dangerous chase – one that leads to a refuge for people who do not want to be found. Like many writers resident in Ireland, Anthony Quinn is influenced by the great American crime writers – and Border Angels shows that he clearly belongs in their august company.

Synopsis

Border Angels by Anthony Quinn

On the Irish border, Inspector Celsius Daly investigates human trafficking and a victim to whom there may be more than meets the eye. Inspector Celcius Daly is hunting for a trafficked woman, Lena Novak, who mysteriously disappeared one winter's night along the Irish border, leaving in her wake the corpses of two men. Daly finds himself hooked together with a prostitute and a hit man in a life-or-death chase. His investigation leads them deep into border country, a wild terrain of disappearing lanes and blown-up bridges, abandoned ghost-estates and thick forests - the ultimate refuge for anyone who does not want to be found.
