Description

A 2017 EDGAR AWARD® NOMINEE!

It’s just the same things over and again for Sean Duffy: riot duty, heartbreak, cases he can solve but never get to court. But what detective gets two locked-room mysteries in one career?
 
When journalist Lily Bigelow is found dead in the courtyard of Carrickfergus castle, it looks like a suicide. Yet there are just a few things that bother Duffy enough to keep the case file open. Which is how he finds out that she was working on a devastating investigation of corruption and abuse at the highest levels of power in the UK and beyond.
 
And so Duffy has two impossible problems on his desk: Who killed Lily Bigelow? And what were they trying to hide?

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 25, 2016 – Det. Insp. Sean Duffy must solve the equivalent of a locked-room mystery in McKinty’s scorching fifth installment in his Troubles-set Northern Irish crime series (after 2015’s Gun Street Girl). It’s 1987 in Carrickfergus, and Duffy, a member of the Royal Ulster Constabulary, is constantly on the lookout for mercury tilt switch bombs planted underneath his car, the calling card of the IRA. Meanwhile, the body of Financial Times journalist Lily Bigelow is found in the courtyard of Carrickfergus Castle. The only way in or out of the centuries-old structure, now a tourist attraction, is through a heavy gate, and CCTV footage proves that no one entered or exited the castle at the time of Bigelow’s death, making Duffy think that she likely threw herself off one of the high walls inside. But the forensics experts conclude someone murdered Bigelow, whom Duffy soon connects to a delegation of Finnish businessmen visiting Northern Ireland to perhaps bring new jobs. McKinty expertly balances Duffy’s tense and suspenseful investigation with the political tensions of the region.

Rain Dogs

This is the fifth in Adrian Mckinty’s Sean Duffy series. Early on we learn that things might be different this time. “‘Beth please . . . You’ll be contributing to a stereotype which
from your literary theory essays I know you hate. The policeman with dependency issues and girlfriend trouble. Come on, cliché city,’ I said.”

And indeed by the end life is better for Sean. Along the way is the usual dark humor, downright hilarious this time, a mysterious murder that leads from one tangle to another, and finally the intervention of MI-5. Sean doggedly pursues the killer, dials down the dependency issues, and eventually a rough justice is achieved. About the best to be hoped for in this fallen world.

If you haven’t read McKinty you are missing a treat. These books are hard to put down and rank with the best of his contemporaries.
