Review

Praise for The Cold Cold Ground:

"Everything in this novel hits all the right notes, from its brilliant evocation of time and place to razor-sharp dialogue to detailed police procedures. McKinty. . . has another expertly crafted crime trilogy going here, and readers will want to see what he [does] in the next two." -Booklist Starred Review

"For fans of Stuart Neville's crime novels, a new and harrowing Irish trilogy is underway. At turns violent and labyrinthine, McKinty's fine police procedural is also the ultimate page-turner. I cannot wait for Book Two!" -Library Journal

"[T]he deft mix of noirish melancholy with express-train pacing and blockbuster-ready action enticingly sets the stage for Duffy's future adventures." -Publishers Weekly

"In this pitch-perfect sequel to "The Cold Cold Ground"...Duffy is nearly overwhelmed by politics. This is crime fiction at its best a police procedural with dialogue that's crisp and occasionally lighthearted; blistering action that's often lethal; McKinty's mordant Belfastian wit; and a protagonist readers won't want to leave behind when the trilogy ends."
"--BOOKLIST", starred review

""I Hear the Sirens in the Street" blew my bloody doors off!"
--IAN RANKIN, author of the Inspector Rebus novels

"Adrian McKinty has the chops to do all manner of things with words, and in "I Hear the Sirens in the Street" he unleashes a strain of rough and visual, sly and lyric narrative prose in service of one hell of a story. Sean Duffy is a great creation, a figure of many parts, and the place comes alive."
--DANIEL WOODRELL, author of "The Outlaw Album: Stories"
