OTHER BUT AT LEAST THE MAINbut at least the main is not a psychopath This is an entertaining audiobook and the author is adding in bonus treats the culture of the Pavee chapters named after famous film noir stories etc Even thought this is is not as good as the Sean Duffy series it s still better than the average thriller out there There are some books that it is just flat out a elief to finish Too much sleep deprivation and the dust bunnies can start to look like they are moving into formations for the final onslaught FALLING GLASS eally cheats a lot Having become a somewhat besotted Michael Forsythe fan I did think I could approach FALLING GLASS with the vague hope of keeping easonable hours He plays a bit part only in this book after all with the action centred around enforcer Killian Should have known better McKinty writes that brand of dark violent no holds barred tempered with touches of aw and magnificent humour Irish noir that makes me forget to feed the dogs and forces me to emind myself that no normal person is still awake at 400am convincing themselves that just a few pages won t hurtThere are differences between Killian and Forsythe Killian is an enforcer ather than a straight out hitman He looks for solutions to problems and he s not above using some elegant albeit somewhat crafty ways of getting esults for whoever is paying him He s also looking for a way out A chance to etire and enjoy the #good life it s his expertise in finding people that don t want to be found that means Forsythe ecommends him #life it s his expertise in finding people that don t want to be found that means Forsythe ecommends him a big job A very wealthy Irish businessman Richard Coulter is prepared to pay big money for somebody to find his ex wife and eturn his two young daughters Fed the line that the ex is a L Digest But then for some eason his ex wife Rachel doesn't keep her side of the custody agreement and vanishes off the face of the earth with Richard's two daughters Richard hires Killian a formidable ex enforcer for the IRA to track her down before Rachel a ecovering drug addict harms herself or the girls As Killian follows Rach. ,
Rug addict who is going to endanger the girls Killian is attracted by the sheer size of the pay packet etirement seems just that bit closer Of course things are going to get complicated and of course there s going to be than meets the eye to the wife s disappearance The fact that there are a few elements to the plot of this story that are predictable is neither here nor there this a few elements to the plot of this story that are predictable is neither here nor there this a book about the journey Killian s journey from enforcer to etiree His journey from it being all about the money to an understanding that there are some things that are important than money The journey from being the chaser to the chased Along the way there s a wonderful sense of the Irishness of this book Killian is a tinker a traveller a background that he can t get away from a lifestyle to which he can eturn with absolutely no uestions asked and all kindnesses forthcoming The landscape in which the action takes place the weather the characters that everyone ubs up against in the chase go further to making
SUCH A STRONG SENSE OF PLACEa strong sense of place humour the outlook the language the tone it s all very very Irish As is the ending Spectacularly Irish utterly unresolved it s an ending that s probably going to drive some eaders bats and made me joyously happy Because I still love Michael Forsythe and not just because he s a bad guy but I also love Killian not just because he s complicated And I don t know if he ll be back in another book And now that s keeping me awake A woman on the un with her children to keep from losing them to a tyrannical ex husband who has unlimited ecourses Somewhat predictable with a slow plot that finally moves along towards the last third of the book The characters were likable but here again predictable The narrator for me was fairly monotone but others thoroughly enjoyed. El's trail he begins to see that there is a lot to this case than first meets the eye and that a thirty year old secret is going to put all of them in terrible dangerMcKinty is at his continent hopping well paced evocative best in this thriller moving between his native Ireland and distant cities within a skin of his teeth timeframe.
