Another thrilling mystery featuring Detective Sean Duffy and his most dangerous investigation yet

Belfast, 1988. A man is found dead, killed with a bolt from a crossbow in front of his house. This is no hunting accident. But uncovering who is responsible for the murder will take Detective Sean Duffy down his most dangerous road yet, a road that leads to a lonely clearing on a high bog where three masked gunmen will force Duffy to dig his own grave.

Hunted by forces unknown, threatened by Internal Affairs, and with his relationship on the rocks, Duffy will need all his wits to get out of this investigation in one piece.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Gerard Doyle has provided the voice of Adrian McKinty’s Sean Duffy since the first audiobook of the series. Returning for book six, he’s more in tune with Duffy’s complexity than ever before…McKinty’s blend of dark drama with perfectly timed humor and intensely plotted action is performed by Doyle as though he’s intimately familiar with Duffy’s mind, heart, and body. Listeners comprehend the vastness of Duffy’s emotion without a caricatured delivery. Doyle delivers another winning narration. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    AudioFile

  • “Doyle returns as narrator for McKinty’s sixth Sean Duffy novel…This is familiar territory for Doyle, and he knows exactly how to navigate the material. From the tense opening scene, he keeps the story moving at a steady pace, expertly building the suspense as Duffy delves deeper into the mystery. Bolstered by excellent characterizations, Doyle’s reading holds the listener transfixed straight through to the final confrontation when all is revealed.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “Another absolute cracker of a book in a superior series.”

    Ian Rankin, New York Times bestselling author

  • “McKinty imbues his writing with same level of attention to wit and cultural touchstones as the scrupulous care he takes structuring the police-procedural aspects….There is plenty of action and excitement as we get to observe the normally flying-by-the-seat-of-his-pants detective grappling intentionally with his future. Superb.”

    Boston Globe

  • “Another mordantly witty mystery novel from the reliably excellent Adrian McKinty.”

    Irish Times

  • “‘Police at the Station and They Don’t Look Friendly’ is a line from a song by Tom Waits, and it perfectly sums up the paranoid atmosphere at Carrickfergus CID in the late 1980s… McKinty moves seamlessly between action and reflection, and his sardonic tone is a delight.”

    Sunday Times (London)

  • "[This book] is perhaps the best Sean Duffy of the lot in the wit of its dialogue, its inwardness, its exciting story and—essentially—in having a complex and memorably flawed hero in Inspector Sean Duffy.”

    Weekend Australian

  • “McKinty has created a Chandleresque character who walks the mean streets of Belfast…Driving it all is McKinty’s compelling literary style”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “McKinty’s hero is irreverent, charming, and mordantly, laugh-out-loud funny, and his eclectic personal soundtrack and bitter, pragmatic politics make for vivid period detail.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Riveting sixth Sean Duffy novel pits the detective inspector against some of his toughest foes yet.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Gerard Doyle has become the voice of the Duffy books…Listeners should not be surprised that his Irish and British accents are perfect but he is also excellent with the French. There are some pretty gruesome scenes here but the story is gripping and will be gobbled up by fans and new listeners will want to seek out the earlier audios.”
