Synopsis

The Devil by Ken Bruen

America - the land of opportunity, a place where economic prosperity beckons: but not for PI Jack Taylor, who's just been refused entry. Jack resumes his old life in Galway. But when he's called to investigate the frenzied murder of a student, he remembers an encounter with an over-friendly stranger in the airport bar. A stranger who seemed to know rather more than he should about Jack.

Reviews

Jack Taylor has become one of today's most interesting shamuses * The Times * Brilliant... Bruen's Galway is certainly not Bord Failte-approved, but once again he has delivered a disturbing story that casts a very cold eye on the state of our nation * Irish Independent * A fast-paced tale of black arts and white lies * RTE Guide * Unfailingly electric * The Herald * The perfect antidote to any dreary days on your holiday, The Devil will spice things up in no time * Galway Now *


About the Author

Maxim Jakubowski's view on Ken Bruen...

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
