Arguably Ruby's best yet! Our 'hero,' just released from jail after his exploits in 'Peril,' wends his way through life as he always has - taking a woman whenever and wherever he can; drifting into one awkward situation after another and rarely realising how little he has learned or how much he is being exploited.
The characters, particularly Ger's, are vividly drawn, consistent and believable. You can almost smell the halitosis and tobacco breath from some of them.
The backgrounds are filled in with the skill of a comic inker, providing a sharp and clear set against which the story unfolds. And it does unfold! Some writers allow their plots and stories to unravel; not Ruby. The pace is hectic and the chapter breaks are just right - leading to my only doing half of what I planned to do today so I could reach the end.
If you like a gritty, pacey, well-written crime story without unnecessary twists and turns, you won't regret reading this.
Barnes at his grim and gruesome best and worth at least 6 out of 10.Getting Out of Dodge

Ger Mayes is back! Nine years in prison for murder, but somehow Barnes has me liking this guy despite his flaws. His negatives are mostly down to those old favorites; wine, women and general all round weakness, and as usual all the decisions in his life are down to his `little lad.'
The Romanians are back too with their funny trousers, there's a complication with a beautiful prostitute, a dodgy job on offer and a serious love interest to meddle with Ger's mind and lead him along a winding path of passion, crime and hard cash. A volatile mix.
Skillfully continued from Peril, I was kept thoroughly entertained to the very last page. The writing is sharp and witty, and the plot builds to a surprising, gripping climax.
Crime thriller is not a genre I'm normally drawn to, but these novels have a unique blend. Barnes has us rooting for Mayes and his hapless plans throughout. He's an anti-hero, but a very human one.
I totally loved it.

We first met Ger Mayes in Ruby Barnes' excellent previous novel, PERIL, where he appears as an engaging, feckless psychopath, whose loose morals and poor judgment get him into nothing but trouble. In GETTING OUT OF DODGE, Ger emerges from prison after serving nine years for committing Ireland's biggest drug heist. However, only Ger and the Romanians who put him there know that he was a patsy rather than a major gangland godfather. And now, led by stupidity and his dick, Ger sets out to be a patsy again. Unless he has finally learned some wisdom.
Ger returns to Kilkenny, unwittingly buys the house formerly owned by a notorious child molester, hitches his fortunes to a local firm of gangsters, has sex with unsuitable women, launders the proceeds of a bank robbery, brushes with the trade in trafficked women, and encounters once more the extremely dangerous Romanians. Nothing we know about Ger guarantees a happy outcome - only some thrills and laughs on the way there.
This a cracking read, written with pace, humour and economy. It is marked by Ruby Barnes trademarks: artful use of language, sharp characterisation, wit and a wonderful sense of place. His realisation of Kilkenny is a tour de force that is weirdly convincing in turning a provincial Irish town into the capital of the Mob and exposing the dark side of modern Ireland. Very highly recommended.

Author Ruby Barnes has provided a great deal of fun, lots of laughs and not just a few near spills in his latest -- Getting Out of Dodge: Peril 2. His main character, Ger Mayes, brings us up to date, after an early release nine years into his prison sentence. He's older, but only a tiny bit wiser.

His little lad still makes most of the major decisions along the way and despite the jams he fell into into before, he settles into a new life in Kilkenny with almost exactly the same degree of denial. It seems that many of his life decisions are being made for him and not always to his own best interest. His choices of friends and business associates, lined up against a wall, would spell doom for anyone else, but not for Ger.

Ger remains one of my favorite characters in recent fiction, and at read's end, there is just enough carrot left dangling on the end of the stick (even a tiny bit of redemption), to keep me anxious for the next book. I can easily recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a tight-paced caper and has a sense of humor.
