Another thrilling mystery featuring Detective Sean Duffy and his most dangerous investigation yet

Belfast, 1988. A man is found dead, killed with a bolt from a crossbow in front of his house. This is no hunting accident. But uncovering who is responsible for the murder will take Detective Sean Duffy down his most dangerous road yet, a road that leads to a lonely clearing on a high bog where three masked gunmen will force Duffy to dig his own grave.

Hunted by forces unknown, threatened by Internal Affairs, and with his relationship on the rocks, Duffy will need all his wits to get out of this investigation in one piece.

Editorial Reviews

Police at the Station is another absolute cracker of a book in a superior series.”

Ian Rankin, New York Times bestselling author

“Terrific…McKinty moves seamlessly between action and reflection, and his sardonic tone is a delight.”

Sunday Times (London)

“McKinty has created a Chandleresque character who walks the mean streets of Belfast…Driving it all is McKinty’s compelling literary style”

Booklist (starred review)

“McKinty’s hero is irreverent, charming, and mordantly, laugh-out-loud funny, and his eclectic personal soundtrack and bitter, pragmatic politics make for vivid period detail.”

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“McKinty’s riveting sixth Sean Duffy novel pits the detective inspector against some of his toughest foes yet.”
