Shortlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger 2009.
CWA Judges’ comments: ‘The seamy and menacing side of a modern Dublin awash in a sea of cocaine and drug warfare.’
Danny Callaghan is having a quiet drink in a Dublin pub when two men with guns walk in. They're here to take care of a minor problem - petty criminal Walter Bennett. On impulse, Callaghan intervenes to save Walter's life. Soon, his own survival is in question. With a troubled past and an uncertain future, Danny finds himself drawn into a vicious scheme of revenge. Dark Times in the City depicts an edgy city where affluence and cocaine fuel a ruthless gang culture, and a man's fleeting impulse may cost the lives of those who matter most to him. Kerrigan's new novel is his finest yet; gripping from start to finish, powerful, original and impossible to put down.
