Riotous and visceral.
Packed with sharp dialogue and unremitting action.
Compelling thrillers written in a hard-bitten, muscular style, the novels are given an unconventional twist by virtue of Forsythe's unusually perceptive insights... a fascinating blend of Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne and Patricia Highsmith's Tom Ripley... McKinty is a rare writer.
McKinty's hard-boiled, fast-paced The Bloomsday Dead is as dark and violent as any thriller fan could demand, but it also serves as an intelligent homage to Ulysses - not so much to its content as to Joyce's way of telling a story... Thriller writers have to know their material: McKinty's graps of the chronnological structures of Ulysses is as firm as any scholar's.
