In this concluding book of Adrian McKinty’s highly praised Dead series, Michael Forsythe confronts his former lover and now archrival, Bridget.

Michael Forsythe has just survived his infiltration of an IRA splinter cell in Boston. Now, his many near fatal wounds healed, he begins his next adventure as manager of hotel security in Lima, Peru. It is there he is contacted by his former lover, Bridget, whose husband he killed. Bridget, calling from Dublin, says her fourteen-year-old daughter has been kidnapped. Michael’s choice is to fly to Dublin and help her or to be executed at the hands of the goons holding him at gunpoint. He agrees to nothing and soon is on the way to Dublin, the first two of many dead bodies left in his wake.

Quotes & Awards

  • “His most visceral, satisfying effort yet…McKinty writes masterful action scenes, and he whips up a frenzy as the bullets begin to fly.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Outpaces its immediate predecessor, The Dead Yard…with [McKinty’s] trademark dark lyricism, one great red herring, and a masterful plot twist that brings Forsythe’s character full circle in a lightning flash.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “As always, Gerard Doyle provides a lively, often unexpectedly comic performance. No one could possibly interpret McKinty’s continually exciting and surprising fiction as well. Highly recommended.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Doyle brings a clean, well-articulated Irish lilt to his reading that works especially well with the book’s multiple characters, each of whom he renders with distinct individual voices…Doyle’s skillful narration draws the listener deep into this dark side of the emerald isle.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A near-perfect marriage of fiction and performance, The Bloomsday Dead is a must-listen…Forsythe is portrayed by Doyle in an intimate virtuoso performance that intensifies the taut, gritty writing. Every nuance of the protagonist’s soul lives in the read…There is never a lack of distinct personality in this soaring, tragic story.”

    " My favorite of the Michael Forsythe novels as it combined suspense, intelligence and depth to the lead character. I highly recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Pegeen | 1/16/2014

    " uses at its frame James Joyce's "Ulysses" somewhat in homage and somewhat as a satire --- every Irishman is presumed to have read and committed Ulysses to heart, correct? Once in a while a bit over the top in the physical damage Michael emerges still ticking from, but other than that , I loved it. Listened to the Audible version read by Gerald Doyle -- outstanding narration. "
