"Adrian McKinty is a gifted storyteller I love to read, and Sean Duffy is a character you will never forget."-- "Don Winslow, #1 internationally bestselling author"
"The welcome return of Sean Duffy."-- "Boston Globe"
"The writing is first-rate, and the story commands attention from the opening pages...The Detective Up Late is a fine piece of crime fiction and is one of my favorites of the year so far. Once more McKinty sets the standard for clever, reflective novels of detection."-- "Murder, Mayhem, and Long Dogs"
"There's an ambivalence about almost every aspect of the book, including Duffy himself. He's a Catholic in the RUC, a man out of sync. The Troubles weave in and out of the narratives, reminding us of what an extreme time it was. These are crime novels that are unafraid to explore the complications of living at a time when which church you went to could be enough to get you killed."-- "The Guardian (London)"
"Gerard Doyle has a fabulous brogue and the ability to deliver a sly joke and dialogue between an Irishman and a Scot with equal facility."-- "AudioFile"
