A Barry Award winner and shortlisted for the Ned Kelly Award!
A torso in a suitcase looks like an impossible case. But Sean Duffy isn't easily deterred, especially when his floundering love life leaves him in need of distraction. So, with Detective Constables McCrabban and McBride, he goes to work identifying the victim. The torso turns out to be all that's left of an American tourist who once served in the US military. What was he doing in Northern Ireland in the midst of the 1982 Troubles?
The trail leads to the doorstep of a beautiful, flame-haired, twenty-something widow, whose husband died at the hands of an IRA assassination team just a few months before. Suddenly, Duffy is caught between his romantic instincts, gross professional misconduct, and powerful men he should know better than to mess with. These include British intelligence, the FBI, and local paramilitary death squads, enough to keep even the savviest detective busy.
Duffy's growing sense of self-doubt isn't helping. But, being a legendarily stubborn man, he doesn't let that stop him pursuing the case to its explosive conclusion.

It's literary heroine...
I'm a crap reader, it takes me ages to read a book, like 6 months ages. This book, this yet to be concluded trilogy, is fantastic and I couldn't wait to turn the next page. Great characters, great writing and fantastic back drops, in this case late 70's early 80's Northern Ireland during the troubles. A fast paced crime novel that teaches you what went on in reality during the troubles of that era, it's the best way to feel like you are there experiencing it.
Great book Mr. McKinty, please finish #3 for the love of God.
