People trafficking, Political intrigue and environmental issues all mixed up with illicit affairs and plenty of red herrings makes Bleed a River Deep a very satisfying read.

A controversial US senator is attacked by an environmentalist, concerned about pollution from a new gold mine, who then is found dead. An illegal immigrant is viciously murdered. Are these seemingly random events linked to something more sinister?

A well known Irish Crime writer and well worth trying now he has 'come over the water'. If you like Rebus and Resnick you’ll love his central character, Inspector Benedict Devlin.

If you like Brian Mcgilloway you might also like to read books by Val mcDermid, Ian Rankin and Peter Robinson.

Synopsis

Bleed a River Deep by Brian Mcgilloway

When a controversial US diplomat is attacked during the opening of a Donegal gold mine, Garda Inspector Benedict Devlin is disciplined for the lapse in security. The gunman turns out to be a young environmentalist – related to an old friend of Devlin’s. Within days, the killing of an illegal immigrant near the Irish border leads Devlin to a vicious people-smuggling ring. Then Bradley himself is found dead near the mine and Devlin begins to suspect that the business is a front for something far more sinister than mere mining.

Bleed a River Deep is the new novel from one of the most acclaimed young crime-writers around, a labyrinthine tale of big business, the new Europe, and the dispossessed. World politics, industry and organised crime collide in McGilloway’s most accomplished, most gripping, and most powerful novel yet.
