This review is from: The Rising (Hardcover)
The book is a good police procedural set in Ireland. The book starts with Devlin being called to a burning barn and the body of a well known drug dealer and moves on from there. Of course not all is as it seems...
...is it ever!!
I won't talk more about the plot as others have done that in their reviews. The book is well written with an easy down to earth style. The troubles in Ireland are a key part of the story but there is now drum banging or pontificating about them. They are covered as part of the background and no more.
The tale moves at a good pace and is in the main believable. It twists and turns to the end and kept me hooked enough to not turn out the light til the end!
Overall I would recommend the book if you like your crime novels gritty and realistic. I will be looking out for more from Brian McGilloway in the future
