A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Now Australia-based award-winning Irish author McKinty, after a detour into historical crime, finally delivers a sparkling fourth volume featuring his fascinating Catholic cop Sean Duffy, at the time of the 'Troubles'. It's 1985 and Duffy is barely holding on to his job in the hostile atmosphere of the Royal UIster Constabulary. The murder of an old couple at first rings no particular alarms, but soon their troubled son commits suicide, leaving a note admitting to the crime. But something doesn't add up and the case is far from closed when further deaths occur. Duffy's doughty investigation soon uncovers a spider's web of intrigue, involving shadowy US intelligence forces and leads him straight to the heart of a major political scandal. Will he swim or sink? Impeccable plotting and a wonderful cast of often unconventional characters make this a perfect read.

Gun Street Girl Synopsis

Belfast, 1985. Gunrunners on the borders, riots in the cities, The Power of Love on the radio. And somehow, in the middle, Detective Inspector Sean Duffy is hanging on, a Catholic policeman in the hostile Royal Ulster Constabulary. Duffy is initially left cold by the murder of a wealthy couple, shot dead while watching TV. And when their troubled son commits suicide, leaving a note that appears to take responsibility for the deaths, it seems the case is closed. But something doesn't add up, and people keep dying. Soon Duffy is on the trail of a mystery that will pit him against shadowy US intelligence forces, and take him into the white-hot heart of the biggest political scandal of the decade.

'It blew my doors off' -- Ian Rankin

 

'Written in spare, razor-sharp prose, and leading up to a denouement that creeps up on you and then explodes like a terrorist bomb, [In the Morning I'll be Gone] places McKinty firmly in the front rank of modern crime writers.' Daily Mail

 

'A razor-sharp thriller set against the backdrop of a country in chaos, told with style, courage and dark-as-night wit.' -- Stuart Neville
