America - the land of opportunity, a place where economic prosperity beckons - but not for PI Jack Taylor, who's just been refused entry.

Disappointed and bitter, he thinks that an encounter with an over-friendly stranger in an airport bar is the least of his problems. Except that this stranger seems to know rather more than he should about Jack.

Jack thinks no more of their meeting and resumes his old life in Galway. But when he's called to investigate a student murder - connected to an elusive Mr K - he remembers the man from the airport. Is the stranger really is who he says he is?

With the help of the Jameson, Jack struggles to make sense of it all. After several more murders and too many coincidental encounters, Jack believes he may have met his nemesis. But why has he been chosen? And could he really have taken on the devil himself?

    " Not my favorite Jack Taylor novel and not Bruen's best. I guess the devil made him do it. "

    " this was sort of different in tone from the other Jack Taylor's but still I can't stop reading once I start "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Levine | 12/31/2013

    " About as noir as can be.Each recent story is darker and more mystical.Written in a type of shorthand.Wrong side of Irish and Ireland no room for romanticism. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave Riley | 10/18/2013

    " This guy writes words so darn well. Effortless placement and zing. Plots stumble a bit. I don't like the 'attitude'. But i keep coming back for more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 10/9/2013

    " I romped through this in two hours and loved it. If you're new to Ken Bruen don't start with this one, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 8/3/2013

    " Grim and very Irish. Do the two always go together? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tuck | 6/4/2013

    " this took me just a few hours to read. a continuation of jack taylor's ongoing fuckups. in this he goes after the divil, or vice versa? its either that or more to the usa. nice. kind of thin but pure bruen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick | 3/4/2013

    " Drugs. Murder. Cigs. Booze the devil incarnate. How can one man fight anyone or anything when he's his own demon's to defeat? Well, once again Jack does. Thank you yet again Mr Bruen! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan | 5/24/2012

    " I really like Ken Bruen. This last Jack Taylor novel is so clever. So wonderful. So Jack Taylor. If you haven't read any Bruen, pick one up. Go to your library, borrow one, buy one, whatever, but get some Bruen in your life. You won't be disappointed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben Waddingham | 1/18/2012

    " Poor stab at the supernatural, in what seems to be a promising crime series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 charlie | 10/27/2011

    " Love the main character; loved every book before this in the series; but this one just didnt cut it for me. Author should be applauded for trying to do something different; but that doesnt mean i have to like it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 6/1/2011

    " I love Jack Taylor!! I did not like this book very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 5/13/2011

    " Very easy read and I did in about 4 hrs. The Devil is trying to get the soul of an Irish man who is a failed cop. The writing is spare but moves the story along so well you hardly believe you are reading it all in one sitting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donald | 10/18/2010

    " Another fine example of Bruen's gritty noir style but a bit allegorical for my taste. Is this the last of the Jack Taylor series? If so, he deserved a better sendoff. Still, it's Bruen and as usual, far better than most of what else is out there. "

    " If you like Bruen, you'll be okay with this one. Although he has added an element of the supernatural. Not sure if I like this twist. "
