Seems impossible, but Jack Taylor is sober - off booze and pills, and nearly off cigarettes. One reason: his dealer's in jail. When that dealer calls him to Dublin and asks a favor in the sordid visiting room of Mountjoy Prison, Jack wants to tell him to take a flying leap. But he doesn't - can't - because the man's sister is dead and the guards have called it death by misadventure. But the dealer says that can't be true and begs Jack to see what he can find.

Finding is what Jack does to make a living, with varying levels of success. He's reluctant, yet agrees to the favor, though he can't possibly know the deadly consequences to which this simple request will lead.

    " It was a short read. The story was ok, but I had to finish it to see "who'd done it"! "

    " Just when you think things can't get any blacker for the series protagonist, Galway native Jack Taylor, they get much, much blacker. Bruen writes the saddest and most violent tales but manages to keep both heroes and villains human. Love this series.

    " Jack Taylor is simply the most tragic character I have ever read. "

    " Wow, has the impact of a smack in the face with a Hurley.

    " I'm always amazed at how some writers can open up worlds with so few worlds. This is a dark one, but with humor, and the ending knocks the wind out of you. "

    " dark (with light relief), main characters always very human,would recommend anything by Ken Bruen "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 7/1/2009

    " A heartbreaking book. In its tragic way, the best of the Jack Taylor novels so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 4/17/2009

    " Classic Bruen. Because I've read the Jack Taylor series out of order I already knew of some of the events that happen in this book. Knowing still didn't prepare myself for them. Mr. Bruen has a wonderful way of telling a story and I can't wait to read more of his work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 3/19/2009

    " Jack Taylor, or perhaps Irish noir in general, is growing on me. The Dramatist is a wee bit more hopeful than the other Bruen books I've read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 9/30/2008

    " Ken Bruen is one of my favorite authors. His clipped language is strange at first, but soon becomes a total pleasure. His Jack Taylor series is not so much about the mystery, but a character study of the flawed man. He can be so despicable, but you can't help but love him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen | 8/28/2008

    " Atmospheric mystery book set in Ireland - Galway. Good writing but so very depressing "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 6/26/2008

    " The crimes/ deaths in Bruen's books are almost always secondary to the plot. The day to day struggles thatex cop Jack Taylor has face. Every Bruen book has tons of good books mentioned in them. I always find a new author to read after every Bruen book. "
