review 1: The second Sean Duffy book packs just as much punch as the first, if not more. In the same troubled setting of 1980s Northern Ireland, Duffy finds himself investigating the grisly and mysterious murder of an American. As usual, things are not straight-forward and the case takes m...

review 1: I like mysteries and crime thrillers as “relaxing reads” especially after nonfiction books or more serious books. I especially liked the backdrop of the “Troubles,” the term for the historically dysfunctional relationship between Loyalists (pro-British) and Republicans (pro-Iris...

review 1: My first McKinty novel and I really enjoyed it. Plot-wise, it was simple enough, and somewhat predictable but (always the clincher for me), the characterization and the details were interesting and a little different. I listened to it and the narrator was Irish and I am having a ...

review 1: My favorite of this series is still the first. It had more funny moments, even if the end was a little far fetched. The ending of this one was a little too conspiracy theory for my taste. None-the-less, I enjoyed it. McKinty is a good writer, and his novels are a hell of a lot be...

review 1: Amazing that he published his first novel in 2003, and has already done three trilogies plus several standalone novels (this is one). His thrillers are all well-plotted, violent but you always know why and you cheer on the hero. In this one the protagonist a young Cuban woman, a ...

review 1: I chose this audiobook based on the narrator, and he really does bring these Irish characters to life with his accent. The mystery (a pair of related murders and one seemingly unrelated) is compelling, but even more interesting to me was the backdrop of "The Troubles", and the in...

review 1: I read a number of bad reviews on this book, but decided to read it any ways and I am glad I did. Though it is not the best book I have read, it was still a great listen and one that I wanted to keep listening to.... I thought the book was coming to the end, but looked and foun...

review 1: I really liked the character of Killian, kind of a gun-for-hire. He's Pavee (a traveler)from north of Belfast. The narrator was excellent as well which helped me realize that perhaps the best kind of audiobooks for me are mysteries or thrillers. There was a lot of violence in par...

review 1: It’s one year since the end of book 2. Everyone is trying to adjust to life back on Earth. Thaddeus come to Ireland to watch Jamie while his mom and Brian (!) go away for a vacation. Meanwhile psychics to work for the CIA get images of a boy who is destined to destroy the Eart...
