This is the third of the Sean Duffy series which number six as of 2017. Best read in order. Adrian McKinty has created a compelling, delightful character in Duffy. Alternately serious and flippant it is a pleasure to see his life develop through the series. The books are filled with engaging characters and the setting of Northern Ireland during the troubles is very interesting. This series by a talented author is excellent .

Last book in a trilogy, be sure to read in order. If you enjoy Ian Rankin and Peter Robinson police procedurals you will enjoy this series.
Great setting and era for a multi faceted story.
Highly recommended.

This is the third in the series of Sean Duffy novels - and they are great! All are engaging and fast paced; set in Northern Ireland during The Troubles - what a landscape and way of life the author paints. An excellent read.

A gifted story teller with a very interesting character against the back drop of "the troubles" in Ireland. Read the trilogy in chronological order.

An exciting read. A "locked room" mystery inside a terrorist thriller, wrapped up in noir humour, plus (spoiler alert), Margaret Thatcher.
