Not bad but I think I need a break from Irish crime fiction for a bit. I hope to read much more from McKinty in the future. The future is, however, most decidedly not now. I will try to regroup and give this a proper review in the near future. For now, t is a good Irish crime novel. It is similar to other Irish crime novels I have read lately but it is mighty. In an aside, I believe "peelers" is the single greatest slang term for cops that I have ever heard.
