About the book

Belfast 1988: a man has been shot in the back with an arrow. It ain't Injuns and it isn't Robin Hood. But uncovering exactly who has done it will take Detective Inspector Sean Duffy down his most dangerous road yet, a road that leads to a lonely clearing on the 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.

Reviews

McKinty has all the virtues: smart dialogue, sharp plotting, sense of place, well-rounded characters and a nice line in what might be called cynical lyricism ... Gateway McKinty: you won't stop here

- Irish Times

The tension between McKinty's love of tight, formal puzzles and loose, riffing dialogue is what makes the Duffy novels such a joy

- Guardian

A new Sean Duffy novel is always one of the highlights of a crime reader's year

- Sydney Morning Herald

A treat and an education

- Val McDermid

One of the great crime series ... Brilliant
