Reviews

"I had been saddened at the thought that this series had ended. Imagine my delight; McKinty has now written a fourth book...Read all four. They are phenomenal."

-- "Sun Herald (Biloxi, Mississippi)"

"A thrilling, thoroughly fantastic murder mystery with countless twists and turns that take readers to the darkest parts of Belfast and some huge cover-ups within the Irish and British governments."

-- "RT Book Reviews (4 stars)"

"Mixes a mordant wit and casual, unpredictable violence that vividly portrays a turbulent time...McKinty is in full command of language, plot, and setting in a terrifying period of history that sometimes seems forgotten. Fans of gritty Northern Irish crime writers such as Stuart Neville, Declan Hughes, and Brian McGilloway will enjoy this talented author."

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

"There's plenty of entertaining territorial battling between the dizzying array of law-enforcement agencies acting in Belfast, and Duffy's investigative skills seem somehow sharpened by his lost hope."

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

"Gerard Doyle gives a stunning narration of...the beat-down, highly complex Royal Ulster Constabulary inspector. Simultaneously, Duffy's protégé, Alexander Lawson, possesses the unrestrained wonder and eagerness of an optimistic youth. Doyle portrays these opposites with an elegant grace that makes listeners forget he's even there. From the subtle changes in dialect to McKinty's distinct writing cadence and dark humor, Doyle hones in on the details that make this procedural a joy to listen to. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award."

"Gun Street Girl is great; I'm so glad that Adrian McKinty has given readers another novel starring Belfast cop Sean Duffy, whose earlier exploits were described in the terrific Troubles trilogy. Don't miss any of the four."

-- "Nancy Pearl, author of Book Lust"
