Quotes & Awards

  • “The things Jack witnesses these days…would cause a saint to go blind. And Jack, whose heroism is fueled by ‘plain old-fashioned rage, bile and bitterness,’ is no saint. Never was, never will be. Amen.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Excellent…Bruen maintains his trademark hip references and highly poetic style, but fans expecting the usual are in for some shock therapy, as he busts out one series-changing surprise after another.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Bruen’s storytelling style, a stream-of-consciousness mix of prose and verse, strips away Galway’s tourist-board façade and offers a darkly comic social commentary…Noir fans will find what they love here.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Nine previous titles, a Shamus Award, two feature films, and now this: even as he struggles to maintain his hard-won stability, former cop Jack Taylor must face a vigilante killer wiping out the bad guys of Galway and leaving missives to Jack signed C.33. Bruen’s doctorate in metaphysics adds depth.”
