Taking its title from the name of the road down which condemned Donegal criminals were once led, Gallows Lane follows Inspector Benedict Devlin as he investigates a series of gruesome murders in and around the Irish borderlands. When a young woman is found beaten to death on a building site, in what appears to be a sexually-motivated killing, Devlin's enquiries soon point to a local body-builder and steroid addict. But days later, born-again ex-con James Kerr is found nailed to a tree -- crucified -- having been released from prison and returned to his hometown to spread the word of God. Increasingly torn between his young family and his job, Devlin is determined to apprehend those responsible for the murders be-fore they strike again, even as the carnage begins to jeopardise those he cares about most. Gallows Lane is the heart-stopping follow-up to Brian McGilloway's acclaimed debut Borderlands. 'Brian McGilloway joins the roll-call of excellence in Irish crime fiction' Marcel Berlins, The Times 'A satisfying mystery with an attractive central character' Sunday Telegraph 'Another masterly thriller' Irish News
