"[The Cold Cold Ground] is the best crime novel that I've read in a long time. . . .
[McKinty is] a great writer."



"McKinty's novels are. . . shot through with a smart, crackling humor that manages to be both dark and witty. . . . Each book is a solid standalone, but it's even better to ride the entire. . . roller coaster."



"Sean Duffy is a compelling detective, the evocation of the period is breathtaking and the atmosphere authentically menacing. A brilliant piece of work. . . ."
