Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The Dead Yard is compelling crime fiction at its finest! Adrian McKinty is an exciting new talent, and Michael Forsythe is a hero that other writers can only aspire to write.” Ed McBain, New York Times bestselling author
“McKinty has an ear for language and a taste for violence…A swiftly paced thriller.” Miami Herald
“Captivating.” Philadelphia Inquirer
“McKinty’s literate, expertly crafted third crime novel…confirms his place as one of his generation’s leading talents…[He] possesses a talent for pace and plot structure that belies his years. Dennis Lehane fans will definitely be pleased.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Gerard Doyle gives another stunning performance…Doyle gives Forsythe a dark sense of the ironic, an understandable, if unconventional, morality, and a roguish Irish charm…Brutal, bloody, and completely believable, McKinty’s complex plotting and Doyle’s extraordinary portrayal will leave listeners craving more.” AudioFile
“McKinty hooks readers early with vivid action sequences and brutal bits of foreshadowing…and then delivers a shocking climax of survival and revenge that whets the appetite for what appears to be a promised third chapter in the Forsythe saga.” Booklist
