"Kerrigan’s gripping police procedural…is good news for readers who can appreciate the moral complexities of this flawed hero."
-The New York Times
"With a dexterous use of language married to masterful plotting, Kerrigan has something of James Joyce’s ability in conjuring up a vivid Dublin–but this modern city is very different than the one Leopold Bloom wandered through."
"Kerrigan’s prose is luxury stuff."
-The New Yorker
