loved it. bittersweet story though. can almost feel myself experiencing his life. never sure how it's gong to end.
written in the first person, the main character tends to repeat himself and his feelings quite a lot. it is a bit rambling, and by the time it gets interesting, you`ve very likely managed to work out the guilty party for yourself. also, the story and the cast are not coherent or harmonious. I would not recommend buying it, although i liked tana french`s "in the woods" a lot.

I listen to a lot of crime/thriller books on here and I suppose I am always drawn to authors that are well reviewed and notable, therefore for me this was a risk...but I am so glad and so thrilled to find a book that was entertaining and with believable characters and brilliant dialog. It's a must and I will definitely seek out more by Tana French and anything read by Gerry O'Brien will get my vote...he is nothing short of excellent!! Thank you !

Being from Dublin, I probably enjoyed this book more than someone who is not. But its such a buzz after years of listening to American murder mysteries to hear one in local accents based on totally believable, dysfunctional stereotypical characters. The book itself gets straight to the point and packs more than a few punches. Thoroughly enjoyable escapist stuff.

Beautifully written, beautifully read...authentically Irish, but accessible to any reader. A riveting combination of crime, family secrets and family bonds.
