'Northern Ireland s bloody history adds gritty reality to the fifth in the popular series featuring the all-too-human Inspector Devlin.'
--Peterborough Evening Telegraph
'McGilloway s elegant, almost elegiac, writing and his humane, sensitive Garda detective raise The Nameless Dead from a gloomy reflection on Northern Ireland s past to a poignant, perfectly-pitched crime story which counterbalances fictional drama with factual history...Respectable, compassionate and doggedly determined in the face of obstructive senior officers, the maverick Devlin always steers a moral course in his pursuit of fairness, justice and the truth.' --Lancashire Evening Post
'In a story of crime, love and mystery, Devlin trusts his instincts to find out the truth after more deaths follow, even when it puts those who he loves most at risk.'

'Told with McGilloway s customary quiet authority, The Nameless Dead fully deserves its Rankinsesque title, confirming the author s reputation as a thoughtful, intelligent crime novelist... The Nameless Dead is as good a novel of modern Ireland as you re likely to read this year, crime or otherwise.' --Irish Times
