When journalist Lily Bigelow is found dead in the courtyard of Carrickfergus castle, it looks like a suicide. Yet there are just a few things that bother Duffy enough to keep the case file open. Which is how he finds out that she was working on a devastating investigation of corruption and abuse at the highest levels of power in the UK and beyond. And so Duffy has two impossible problems on his desk: Who killed Lily Bigelow? And what were they trying to hide?

a fast-paced, page-turner. Read The Chain (excellent) and this is my second but not last thriller I'll read by McKinty.

My new favourite author!! Set in Northern Ireland during the troubles So well written. Laugh out loud! But if Ian rankin likes it I had to try it! Love the protagonist. A Catholic working amongst Protestants! Wish there were more books by this author! Hurry up, Adrian, write more!

"Rain Dogs" by Adrian McKinty was a wonderfully atmospheric mystery. Set in 1987, right in the middle of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. McKinty sets up a locked room mystery with the room being Carrickfergus Castle. The bad guys are a bunch of Finns. And, we soon know what sort of trouble we are dealing with 'cause Jimmy Savile figures prominently. Thus, we also know that this is a mystery that can't end with everything wrapped up nice and neat. So the end is weak but it is a good read.

This trilogy is by far the best work of this author. Together they provide an uproarious read.
