Book 4 in the Detective Sean Duffy series. 'McKinty is one of Britain's great contemporary crime writers and the Sean Duffy books are his masterpiece.' IAN RANKIN Belfast, 1985. Gunrunners on the borders, riots in the cities, The Power of Love on the radio. And somehow, hanging on, is Detective Inspector Sean Duffy, a Catholic policeman in the Royal Ulster Constabulary. The usual rounds of riot duty and sectarian murders are interrupted when a wealthy couple are shot dead while watching TV. Their son jumps to his death, leaving a note claiming responsibility. But something doesn't add up, and people keep dying. Soon Sean Duffy, Belfast's most roguish detective, is on the trail of a mystery that will pit him against shadowy US national security forces, and take him into the white-hot heart of the biggest political scandal of the decade. RAIN DOGS WAS WINNER OF THE EDGAR AWARD 2017

MEDIA REVIEWS
Fluent and fast-paced * Sunday Times *
A superb satire of its time and place. * Irish Times *
Duffy always reminds me of one of Iain Banks's jaded-but-idealistic narrator-heroes, and not just because of the protagonist's taste for pharmaceutical-grade cocaine. Anyone missing their Banks fix should give McKinty a go. * Guardian *
Adrian McKinty is back with the same perceptive commentary on social conditions and an acute awareness of political realities in the Belfast of the eighties ... Lucky for us there must be plenty of unresolved crimes, even in a backwater like Carrickfergus, for Inspector Duffy to tackle and for McKinty to turn into further gripping episodes. * Irish Independent *
McKinty, with his machine-gun prose and cold hard characters, drops us slam-bang into the racing heart of the fourth Sean Duffy thriller. Strap yourself in. * RTE Guide *
This is a first-rate crime-thriller that commands attention from the opening pages * Sydney Morning Herald *
Intelligent, razor sharp thrillers ... Taut, lean prose and dialogue up there with Elmore Leonard -- Chris Mullin
'Adrian McKinty is one of the great storytellers writing crime fiction today.' -- Don Winslow
When it comes to Northern Irish crime fiction, Adrian McKinty forged the path the rest of us follow. -- Stuart Neville
