“I clamor for the next installment of Richard O’Rawe’s rollicking series of heist novels featuring James ‘Ructions’ O’Hare . . . O’Rawe adopts a pitch of dark humor that is at times brutal, often arch, but hardly ever bitter. The pace crackles as it moves from Belfast to Paris to other European climes, and it’s nearly an impossibility not to root for Ructions, rogue that he is.” — Sarah Weinman, The New York Times Book Review
“Mr. O’Rawe … has written the most riotous caper novel since his own “Northern Heist,” and with luck, there will be more adventures ahead.” Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal
“Superior… As the plot moves at a breakneck pace, O’Rawe adds more depth to his already complex antihero. Crime fiction fans will hope to see a lot more of O’Hare.” — Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
Praise for Richard O’Rawe’s Northern Heist . . .
“Full of double- and triple-crosses… Northern Heist’s deeds and details seem as real as a smashed kneecap, while its stopwatch tension, heightened by present-tense voice, is reminiscent of such classic caper films as ’Rififi’ and ’The Asphalt Jungle’.” —Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal
“Gripping … A hugely impressive and skillfully crafted debut novel … Its dialogue is sharp and venomous … O’Rawe’s confidence as a storyteller takes off as the heist begins, dropping you in all kinds of damned places.” — The Irish times
“O’Rawe channels both Elmore Leonard and Guy Ritchie in this heist thriller full of sharp twists and gritty dialogue, emerging with a style all his own. His reimagining of the real-life bank heist feels so authentic readers will hope he has a strong alibi.” — Publishers Weekly starred review
“As authentic as a jar of Guinness and as real as an exit wound. A fast-paced, uppercut of a novel.” — Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of Where It Hurts
