This book came highly recommended to me and it did not disappoint.
Jack Taylor is an alcoholic ex-cop in Ireland who uses his experience, connections and bullheadedness to get answers for folks in need. But don’t call him a private eye.
Bruen is obviously a fan of the crime genre. Jack Taylor feels like he just stepped out of a David Goodis book but Bruen’s style is entirely his own. It’s stark, funny and brutal as hell.
Some of the Irish references were lost of me but I still very much enjoyed the regional flavor. I understand the series just gets better from here so I’m looking forward to reading more by Bruen.
