Gritty, with spot-on dialogue and black humor, Hidden River is a dynamic thriller.

My favorite McKinty novel
Apart from the Lighthouse series, I have read all the McKinty novels on audible.com. I enjoyed immensely each one as I read them one after the other. However, Hidden River is my favorite. Exciting story with many unusual twists especially towards and at the end. Gerard Doyle does an extraordinary job as narrator making each character come to life. I am from Newfoundland (Canada) and I particularly enjoy the Irish humor which is abundant despite the nature of the novel.
This is undoubtedly a "must-read'.

Gerard Doyle Is Terrific!
This pairing of author and reader is so good! The basic outline of the story is very similar to Dead I Well May Be: young, down-and-out Irishman comes to the US only to find greater troubles there. This is more complex in that herion-addicted Alex proves to be his own worst enemy and the troubles just keep snowballing. Part of the suspense is waiting for Alex to just wake up and see what the rest of us have already figured out. What makes audiobook really special, though, is Gerard Doyle. His style is so natural and conversational you'd never know he had written material in front of him. He simply becomes Alex and tells us his story. He's a remarkable reader. Highly recommended listening.
