Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“His most visceral, satisfying effort yet…McKinty writes masterful action scenes, and he whips up a frenzy as the bullets begin to fly.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Outpaces its immediate predecessor, The Dead Yard…with [McKinty’s] trademark dark lyricism, one great red herring, and a masterful plot twist that brings Forsythe’s character full circle in a lightning flash.” Booklist (starred review)
“As always, Gerard Doyle provides a lively, often unexpectedly comic performance. No one could possibly interpret McKinty’s continually exciting and surprising fiction as well. Highly recommended.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Doyle brings a clean, well-articulated Irish lilt to his reading that works especially well with the book’s multiple characters, each of whom he renders with distinct individual voices…Doyle’s skillful narration draws the listener deep into this dark side of the emerald isle.” Publishers Weekly
“A near-perfect marriage of fiction and performance, The Bloomsday Dead is a must-listen…Forsythe is portrayed by Doyle in an intimate virtuoso performance that intensifies the taut, gritty writing. Every nuance of the protagonist’s soul lives in the read…There is never a lack of distinct personality in this soaring, tragic story.” AudioFile
