Praise
"Galway writer Ken Bruen['s]...lyric novels featuring private investigator Jack Taylor cruise the bleak underside of Irish-Catholic life with mordant humor....What happens, though, matters far less in Bruen's books than the boozy, doped-up ride along Jack's Joycean consciousness, the narrative delivered in chopped up sentences stacked like lines in a poem, riffing on music, books, Zen, priests and Ireland's spiraling economic devastation."
From the Publisher
Editors Note America—the land of opportunity, a place where economic prosperity beckons: but not for PI Jack Taylor, who’s just been refused entry. Disappointed and bitter, he thinks that an encounter with an overly friendly stranger in an airport bar is the least of his problems. Except that this stranger seems to know much more than he should about Jack. Jack thinks no more of their meeting and resumes his old life in Galway. But when he’s called to investigate a student murder—connected to an elusive Mr. K—he remembers the man from the airport. Is the stranger really who he says he is? With the help of the Jameson, Jack struggles to make sense of it all. After several more murders and too many coincidental encounters, Jack believes he may have met his nemesis. But why has he been chosen? And could he really have taken on the devil himself? Suspenseful, haunting, and totally unique, The Devil is Bruen at his very best.
Editors Note 1 Denied entry into the United States after a seemingly chance encounter with an overtly friendly stranger at an airport bar, Jack Taylor investigates the murder of a student that brings the stranger's identity into question. By the Shamus Award-winning author of Sanctuary. Reprint.
