His debut crime novel Dead I Well May Be was published in 2003. It was the first instalment of what became known as his Michael Forsythe Trilogy, followed by The Dead Yard (2006) and The Bloomsday Dead (2007). Between 2006 and 2008, McKinty also published the Lighthouse Trilogy – three young adult science fiction novels set in New York.

In 2012, The Cold Cold Ground opened his hugely popular series featuring Sean Duffy from the Royal Ulster Constabulary. Set in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, the Sean Duffy novels brought McKinty wide critical acclaim and commercial success. His latest, exquisitely chilling standalone thriller, The Chain, was selected as the Waterstones Thriller of the Month for March 2020.
