When a letter containing a list of victims arrives in the post, PI Jack Taylor is sickened, but tells himself the list has nothing to do with him. He has enough to do just staying sane. His close friend Ridge is recovering from surgery and alcohol’s siren song is calling to him ever more insistently.

A guard and then a judge die in mysterious circumstances.

But it is not until a child is added to the list that Taylor determines to find the identity of the killer, and put a stop to the killings at any cost.

What he doesn’t know is that his relationship with the killer is far closer than he thinks, and that it’s about to become deeply personal.

Spiked with dark humour, seasoned with acute insights into the perils of urbanization, and fuelled by rage at man’s inhumanity to man, this is crime-writing at its darkest and most original.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

I love the Jack Taylor character: how much physical abuse can he survive? why doesn't he drop dead of alcohol poisoning by 10am? his personal demons are so many he almost needs a parade permit to walk down the street. But his heart is pure gold, and somehow, he always gets the job done. Reminds me of a workplace I once had to endure.
Best of all, the writing just clips along.
