Synopsis:

Cycle of Violence, written with appealing verve and Colin Batemans unique blend of sinister violence and sidesplitting dialogue, is a thrill ride through Belfasts most terrifying neighborhood with Miller, Ulsters wisecracking, bicycling journalist, and his “cycle of violence.”

Millers ever-so-smart-aleck mouth has earned him a disciplinary transfer from his downtown Belfast beat to Crossmaheart, a beleaguered and depressed outpost where the preferred response to murder is a hilarious one-liner. Miller is replacing a reporter who has disappeared—to no ones great surprise in this post-terrorist ghetto full of leftover guns, plentiful whiskey, and a secret more sordid than the locals résumés of political “activism.”

Crossmaheart is a notoriously famous place in which to ask questions, and Miller is determined to forgo his professional curiosity, to compromise his journalists integrity in the interest of staying alive. He is particularly intent on keeping himself clear of whatever involvements cause the job opening at the Crossmaheart Chronicle in the first place. But when he falls for his predecessors troubled girlfriend, Marie—a former Catholic schoolgirl to complement Millers own Protestant heritage—his plan begins to fall apart.

Darkly funny, romantic, disturbing, and suspenseful, Cycle of Violence confirms Batemans reputation as one of the best Irish writers of his generation.

Synopsis:

A hilarious thrill ride of a novel from one of Ireland’s greatest satirists—darkly funny and deeply disturbing.
