Publisher Description

A New York Times Best Mystery of the Year: A hard-drinking detective deals with double murder and an elusive vigilante.

After much tragedy and violence, Jack Taylor has at long last landed at contentment. Of course, he still knocks back too much Jameson and dabbles in uppers, but he has a new woman in his life, a freshly bought apartment, and little sign of trouble on the horizon—until a wealthy Frenchman comes to him with a request to investigate the double murder of his twin sons.

Jack is meanwhile roped into looking after his girlfriend’s nine-year-old, and is in for a shock with the appearance of a character out of his past. The plot is one big chess game and all of the pieces seem to be moving at the behest of one dangerously mysterious player: a vigilante called “Silence,” because he’s the last thing his victims will ever hear.

This new novel filled with suspense and pitch-dark humor comes from a Shamus Award-winning author who’s been called “hard to resist, with his aching Irish heart, silvery tongue, and bleak noir sensibility” (TheNew York Times Book Review).

Unfortunately Terrible

While I like his style, it rambles without purpose. Dark perspectives can draw you in but he just doesn’t. The ending (no spoiler alert) leaves you wanting and almost cursing the author. Don’t waste your time unless you have absolutely NOTHING else to entertain you.

Waste of money

Clever writer but too heavy-booted politicsl. Detracts from story. Had to give one star, to get the review published.
