It blew my doors off (Ian Rankin on 'I Hear the Sirens in the Street')
Duffy is one of the most interesting, convincing and sympathetic police officers in recent crime fiction ... McKinty gets better and better (The Times)
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, and the place comes alive - a uniquely beautiful and nasty part of the world (Daniel Woodrell)
Powerful ... [these are] exceptionally smart police procedurals (Christine Tran Booklist 2014-02-01)
Smart and irreverent ... a clever and gripping set-up that helps make Duffy's third outing easily his best so far (John Dugdale Sunday Times 2014-01-12)
Hugely enjoyable (John O'Connell Guardian 2013-12-28)
This is an older, more sobered Duffy, still unconventional and willing to take chances, but more reflective, more Sherlock Holmes and Edgar Allen Poe than Rambo and Robocop ... there is plenty of excitement and suspense in this gripping yarn. (Maurice Hayes Irish Independent 2014-01-25)
Terrific Troubles-set thriller (The Sun 2014-01-31)
McKinty is particularly convincing in painting the political and social backdrops to his plots. He deservers to be treated as one of Britain's top crime writers. (Marcel Berlins Times 2014-02-01)
Not content with constructing a complex plot, McKinty further wraps his story around a deliciously old-fashioned "locked room" mystery, the solution to which holds the key to Duffy's entire investigation. Driven by McKinty's brand of lyrical, hard-boiled prose, leavened by a fatalistic strain of the blackest humour, In the Morning I'll Be Gone is a hugely satisfying historical thriller. (Declan Burke Irish Times 2014-02-01)
McKinty has rightly developed an international reputation with his stories ... Written in spare, razor-sharp prose, and leading up to a denouement that creeps up on you and then explodes like a terrorist bomb, it places McKinty firmly in the front rank of modern crime writers. (Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail 2014-02-07)
McKinty's series is settling in as one of crime fiction's most reliable attractions ... builds to a genuinely thrilling climax (Mail on Sunday 2014-03-02)
Structurally, In The Morning I'll Be Gone is gemlike, embedding a locked-room mystery within a terrorist thriller. (The Age, Australia 2014-03-29)
Already claimed as the finest of the new wave of Irish crime writers, McKinty is as good as any novelist around. His lovely flair for language is matched by his feel for place, his appetite for redemptive violence leavened by some seriously mordant wit and his seriously cool appreciation of characters who reject conformity. His Duffy novels echo, among many, Dennis Lehane and Robert Crais. (Weekend Australian 2014-03-01)
Powerful ... McKinty's exceptionally smart police procedural brilliantly sets a familiar device from the Golden Age of British mysteries against the gritty backdrop of 1980s Belfast. (Booklist 2014-05-01)
The third book in the Sean Duffy thriller series.
A spectacular escape and a man-hunt that could change the future of a nation - and lay one man's past to rest.
