Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vincent Naylor, just released from jail, resumes doing what he does best, planning for an armored car robbery. Bob Tidey, an honest policeman, discouraged by his colleagues making deals with criminals and about to commit perjury, is investigating the murder of a crooked banker. A call from an old acquaintance will change his course of investigation. Maura Coady, a retired nun living on regrets and bad memories, sees something that she can't ignore and decides to tell someone. She makes a phone call that sets in motion a violent fate.

Review:

"Taut prose distinguishes Kerrigan's accomplished crime novel set in contemporary Dublin. Det. Sgt. Bob Tidey faces a moral quandary after investigating a banker's murder. Former nun Maura Coady, who keeps watch over a quiet suburb, makes a fateful phone call, while within the city's criminal underbelly, swaggering Vincent Naylor and his brother, Noel, are preparing for their next big heist. Kerrigan (Little Criminals) touches on broader social and political issues, from the Irish housing bubble to the long shadows cast by abuse within the Catholic church, which deepen rather than distract from the main action as it speeds ahead with wheels shrieking, preparing the reader for an ending whose inevitability doesn't diminish its explosive impact. While these Dublin streetscapes lack the hard glamour of L.A. noir, Tidey emerges as a prototypical Raymond Chandler hero, holding fast to his moral compass in a corrupt world that demands compromise even from good men. Agent: Melanie Jackson, the Melanie Jackson Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Review:

"Kerrigan's prose is luxury stuff." The New Yorker

Review:

"Kerrigan's gripping police procedural...is good news for readers who can appreciate the moral complexities of this flawed hero." The New York Times

Review:

"With a dexterous use of language married to masterful plotting, Kerrigan has something of James Joyce's ability in conjuring up a vivid Dublin — but this modern city is very different than the one Leopold Bloom wandered through." The Independent
