Publisher's Summary

Jack Taylor, a disgraced ex-cop in Galway, has slid further down the slope of despair. After a year in London, he returns to his home town of Galway with a leather coat and a coke habit. Someone is systematically slaughtering young travellers and dumping their bodies in the city centre.Even in the state he's in, Jack Taylor has an uncanny ability to know where to look, what questions to ask, and with the aid of an English policeman, apparently solves the case.

What a waste

Ken Bruen writes wonderfully. Jack Taylor is a very interesting character. I get great references to authors who I've not read and will truly enjoy. And yet ... These stories are an unremitting slog through the life of a bad alcoholic. I really don't see the point in revistiting, time and time again, the depths to which Jack can descend while he's ruining his life with drink. It's so unfortunate - I love the location, I love the characters - I barely finished the first book and I could not finish this one.

Very very disappointing

I have enjoyed many other mysteries by this author, but this book was very disappointing. Basically 90% of the book is the main character moaning about his life, getting high on cocaine, and getting drunk. I feel as if I was robbed.
