LoveReading Expert Review of Fifty Grand

The stylish Irish author who now lives in Australia but was for many years in America has followed his DEAD trilogy with FIFTY GRAND, a powerful revenge novel set in Cuba and Colorado, with a female Havana cop on the rampage in a mission to avenge her dead father. Staccato prose, poetic landscapes and an unforgettable heroine all conspire to make this one of the big crime novels of the past year. A must.

Maxim Jakubowski

Fifty Grand Synopsis

Cuban cop Hernandez has a score to settle, on behalf of a deadbeat dad, a 'traitor' who skipped free from Castro's control to set up a new life working illegally in Colorado. He settled in a ski resort popular with the Hollywood set, where the facade is maintained by the immigrant cleaners and labourers who work for below minimum wage while the local sheriff is bribed to turn a blind eye. Hernandez Sr's dreams of fortune and freedom came to a swift end when he was killed in a hit-and-run accident. Sworn to avenge his death, Hernandez has some obstacles to overcome - not least getting out of Cuba, where visas are as elusive as constant electricity. Segueing back and forth between heat-soaked Havana and the icy luxury of the mountainside resort, Fifty Grand is an audacious thriller from an acknowledged talent - and an incendiary debut for a new hero.

''Packed with sharp dialogue and unremitting action' - The Times 

 

'Thoroughly enjoyable... [McKinty] maintains the bloody action all the way from Lima to Larne with panache and economy. His hero, the un-f***ing-killable Michael Forsythe, is a wonderful creation' - Irish Mail on Sunday
