Praise for The Rage

“Gritty and compulsively readable.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Kerrigan’s clean, spare style adapts smoothly to the striving characters who lend their many voices to this narrative. What’s more striking, though, is the similarity of their aspirations and the familiarity of their discontents.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Tightly plotted…the story’s pacing is masterly.” 
The New Yorker

“Fans [of The Wire] can find many of the same strengths in Kerrigan’s work.”
The New York Times

“A boundlessly readable portrait of an Ireland in which all the old certainties have vanished. Remarkable for its verve, moral trickiness, and nifty plotting.”
NPR Fresh Air

“For authenticity, narrative, plot, writing skill, the gritty noirish crime milieu setting, and the post-Celtic-Tiger-Ireland toxicity, Kerrigan’s latest well deserves its CWA Gold Dagger Award.”
Library Journal (Starred Review)

“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.”
The Independent
