Praise

“Massey has an eye for black humor and the details of a life fully inhabited. … He’s got the natural voice of a storyteller.”
NPR

“Refreshing… It takes the subject of death and turns it into an adventure that is both funny and thought-provoking… A mix of black comedy, adventure and hilarious love story, The Last Four Days of Paddy Buckley is smart storytelling from a writer whose knowledge of the undertaking business shines through.”
The Irish Times

“Jeremy Massey does for Ireland what Carl Hiaasen does for Florida.”
The Charlotte Observer

“This is what we call ‘a nightstand book’ at our house: It will joyfully make its way from my nightstand to my husband’s. The gifted Jeremy Massey has created a complex, fascinating and hilarious Irishman in Paddy Buckley, the delightful center of a novel brimming with passion, humor, poetry and wisdom that only comes from the Emerald Isle, where the best stories are born.”
—Adriana Trigiani, author of The New York Times-bestseller The Shoemaker’s Wife 

“Jeremy Massey puts a fresh and intriguing spin on the Irish crime novel with the tale of an ordinary man drawn into a deadly conflict with a Dublin mob boss.  The Last Four Days of Paddy Buckley is both a cleverly constructed thriller and an unforgettable story of friendship, love, and loyalty.  It’s sharply written, darkly comic, and full of heart.”
—Harry Dolan, author of the New York Times bestseller Bad Things Happen

“[An] intelligent and suspenseful debut novel … A hilarious funeral home scam and a quirky dead body mix-up add to this exciting, morbid tale.”
Publishers Weekly

“Highly readable and entertaining…the novel benefits especially from Massey’s mostly restrained, deadpan Irish sense of humor.”
Kirkus Reviews

“[Massey’s] dark and zany humor is anchored by some serious reflection.”
Library Journal
