Great story, and compelling character caught in the unreal world during the Irish 'troubles'. I was touched by the explanation of why he set is radio alarm to "after the morning news" so that he would not start his day hearing about who/what was bombed overnight. And his description of the Irish children playing on the rubble of bombed street. blocks. Highly recommend the series.

I rushed to read the second installment of this series - a great main character and interesting story. Lots of twists and turns - and they even take a trip to the Boston Suburbs! Definitely a great read.

Thanks, Nancy Pearl, for telling me about Adrian McKinty. He's a master storyteller, and Sean Duffy is a great character (he reminds me of Robert B. Parker's Jesse Stone, whom I miss very much). I can hardly wait to read the third in this trilogy.
