Acclaimed Irish crime writer Ken Bruen has won numerous awards for his hard-charging, dark thrillers, which have been translated into ten languages. In Headstone, an elderly priest is nearly beaten to death and a special-needs boy is brutally attacked. Evil has many guises and Jack Taylor has encountered most of them. But nothing before has ever truly terrified him until he confronts an evil coterie named Headstone, who have committed a series of random, insane, violent crimes in Galway, Ireland.

Most would see a headstone as a marker of the dead, but this organization seems like it will act as a death knell to every aspect of Jack's life. Jack's usual allies, Ridge and Stewart, are also in the line of terror. An act of appalling violence alerts them to the sleeping horror, but this realization may be too late, as Headstone barrels along its deadly path right to the center of Jack's life and the heart of Galway. A terrific read from a writer called "a Celtic Dashiell Hammett," Headstone is an excellent addition to the Jack Taylor series (Philadelphia Inquirer).

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Headstone

"Hard hitting ... a remarkable series."--Publishers Weekly

"Headstone is an excellent addition to the Jack Taylor series."--Philadelphia Inquirer

"Ken Bruen is brilliant. While HEADSTONE is the stuff of nightmares, it is also the stuff of redemption, even at great cost. You will feel wrung out after reading this one, but all the gladder for it."--Bookreporter

"Headstone is one of the year's best reading pleasures."--Crime Fiction Dossier

"Bruen is threatening to become a mass cult figure in the U.S. as well as a critical favorite."--Allen Barra, The Atlantic

"A nonstop rampage of intrigue, mayhem, lunacy and dark-dark-dark humor."--Shelf Awareness

"Bruen's voice is unmistakable: finely chiseled paragraphs that more closely resemble verse than prose. . . . Bleaker than David Goodis, colder than Derek Raymond, and funnier and more violent than Richard Stark, Ken Bruen is among the most original and innovative noir voices of the last two decades."--Los Angeles Review of Books

"A welcome entry. B+."--Avid Mystery Reader
