Product Description


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) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

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.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have read all three of the Sean Duffy stories to date and they have each been an excellent read. I would say that this one is the best to date which is very encouraging. One thing they are certainly not is the least bit formulaic. I have recently read the latest Lee Child Jack Reacher story and, although good fun, the reader is rather aware that they are reading the same story over and over repackaged. However there is no such repetition in the life of Sean Duffy.

This time round Duffy continues his career habit of offending those in authority and suffers the consequences. His life is in the doldrums until, rather fortuitously he is recruited by MI5 who are in pursuit of a leading IRA figure who went to school with Duffy. Following a sojourn training in Libya, Dermot McCann is now back in Europe and thought to be planning a 'spectacular'. In the course of this investigation Sean becomes involved in a classic 'locked room' cold case mystery which he has to solve if he is to find McCann.

I like Adrian McKinty's style of writing and the Northern Irish setting retains the ring of authenticity which was so evident in the previous books - there are many nice details such as the very accurate description of the well known Crown pub in Belfast. It is certainly not necessary to have read the other books though as this works well as a standalone story. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would certainly recommend it.

I'm reading all four Sean Duffy novels back-to-back and loving each one; sadly I read the fourth one first and there are now no more for me in this series but how very, very good they are. In this third one, the writer again mixes high-profile political events of the 1980s with his own appealing fiction. There are traces of James Ellroy in this methodology, because real people have speaking parts - notably the British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. She is very much a central figure in the conclusion of this tale.

Duffy is temporarily promoted into Special Branch and given the task of finding IRA bomb-making expert Dermot McCann who escaped from the Maze Prison in Northern Ireland and is thought to be planning a major terrorist attack. Duffy and McCann go way back to school days when McCann was head boy and Duffy the deputy head; since then they have gone in very different directions but Duffy has always felt that he was living in McCann's shadow. In order to find him he is asked to find the killer of a young woman a few years earlier, but only in return for information about McCann's wherabouts. This murder investigation takes up the bulk of the pages and the conclusion is tense, dynamic and vaguely surreal.

It's hard to fault any aspect of this as a piece of crime fiction because it offers everything : A magnetic leading character, a strong story line and a complete absence of padding. There's something to enjoy on every page. I already know that the next in the series Gun Street Girl: Sean Duffy 4 is even better (actually, the best of the lot) and I really hope there will be more to come in the future. McKinty is simply a very good story-teller.

By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 4 Jun. 2014
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I thoroughly enjoyed this police thriller. It has its flaws, but not enough to spoil things for me and if anything I thought it was better than its predecessor, I Hear The Sirens In The Street.

Sean Duffy is a Detective Inspector in Northern Ireland in 1984. Or at least he was until insubordination, excessive drinking and so on in the last book caused him to be demoted to sergeant and removed from CID. In this book things get even worse until he's recruited by MI5 to find a terrorist leader with whom he was at school and is back on the force... These are such clichés of the genre that I wouldn't normally bother, but the book is so well written that I didn't mind a bit. Duffy is an engaging if flawed character, he and other are exceptionally convincingly drawn, and the period and place are very well evoked. Dialogue is excellent; it is crisp, believable and pretty accurate for the period (although people do mention "issues" and "closure" which, mercifully, hadn't infested the language by then.)

The plot is beautifully paced and utterly gripping. It has its silly elements, to be honest, including an almost with-a-single-bound-he-was-free Bulldog Drummond-esque escape and dash to prevent National Catastrophe, but I was quite happy to go along with it and stayed up far too late to finish the book. It's an exciting, deceptively well-researched and erudite read, and a very good portrait of a turbulent time and place. Recommended.

I love all the McKinty/Sean Duffy books. I read one and immediately bought the rest and read them all straight off, one after the other. Only problem was I finished too quickly. I really liked the getting to know Northern Ireland in the Troubles. It seemed like a good understanding of it all, though of course I cannot judge the accuracy, but it convinced me. I liked the jokes and the crossword puzzles and the literary references, and I liked the stories and the main characters. Altogether a winning performance.
I am not writing this out for all the books, but it applies to them all.
I am just about to start on the Dead series. I hope it will be as good.
