Praise

WINNER! 2014 Ned Kelly Award – Best Fiction 

Praise for the Detective Sean Duffy novels:

 
“The best crime novel that I’ve read in a long time. . . .  [McKinty is] a great writer. “
–NANCY PEARL, NPR, on The Cold Cold Ground
 
“A dark-humored shamus in the Phillip Marlowe tradition, [Sean Duffy] is . . . buoyed through the murderous chaos by his love of classical, punk, and new-wave music, the Greek philosopher Epicurus, and frothy pints of Guinness.”
WALL STREET JOURNAL
 
 “A razor-sharp thriller set against the backdrop of a country in chaos, told with style, courage, and dark-as-night wit. . . . An utterly brilliant novel with its own unique voice.”
–STUART NEVILLE, author of Ratlines, on The Cold Cold Ground
 
Praise for In the Morning I’ll Be Gone:
 
“This is the third in the series and, for me, the best, for it contains a locked room mystery at the heart of a drama about a major terrorist escape from the Maze prison, Belfast in 1983. Written in spare, razor-sharp prose, and leading up to a denouement that creeps up on you and then explodes like a terrorist bomb, it places McKinty firmly in the front rank of modern crime writers.”
THE DAILY MAIL, London
 
“Driven by McKinty’s brand of lyrical, hard-boiled prose, leavened by a fatalistic strain of the blackest humour, In the Morning I’ll Be Gone is a hugely satisfying historical thriller.”
THE IRISH TIMES
 
“Powerful. . . . The Troubles’ first two novels were exceptionally smart police procedurals, and McKinty applies the same expertise here, contrasting a classic locked-room puzzle with the gritty, violent Belfast backdrop.”
BOOKLIST STARRED REVIEW
 
“A locked room mystery within a manhunt killer [is] a clever and gripping set-up that helps makes Duffy’s third outing easily his best so far.”
THE SUNDAY TIMES, London
