2010 is going be Bruen’s year, with three major movies based on his books being released, including the star-studded LONDON BOULEVARD. His Galway PI series featuring Jack Taylor takes a scalpel to the soul of Irish society and SANCTUARY, his 7th outing, is both a bitter and breathless waltz into darkness, unveiling layers of corruption like the peeling of an onion.

 

Jack Taylor series:
1. The Guards
2. The Killing of the Tinkers
3. The Magdalen Martyrs
4. The Dramatist
5. Priest
6. Cross
7. Sanctuary

Sanctuary Synopsis

Two guards; one nun; one judge. When a letter containing a list of victims arrives in the post, PI Jack Taylor is sickened, but tells himself the list has nothing to do with him. He has enough to do just staying sane. His close friend Ridge is recovering from surgery, and alcohol's siren song is calling to him ever more insistently. A guard and then a judge die in mysterious circumstances. But it is not until a child is added to the list that Taylor determines to find the identity of the killer, and stop them at any cost. What he doesn't know is that his relationship with the killer is far closer than he thinks. And that it's about to become deeply personal. Spiked with dark humour, seasoned with acute insights about the perils of urbanisation, and fuelled by rage at man's inhumanity to man, this is crime-writing at its darkest and most original.
