Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2017 Edgar Award
Rain Dogs, a stunning installment in the Sean Duffy thriller series, following the Edgar Award-nominated Gun Street Girl, is "another standout in a superior series" (Booklist).
It's just the same things over and again for Sean Duffy: riot duty, heartbreak, cases he can solve but never get to court. But what detective gets two locked-room mysteries in one career?
When journalist Lily Bigelow is found dead in the courtyard of Carrickfergus castle, it looks like a suicide. Yet there are a few things that bother Duffy just enough to keep the case file open, which is how he finds out that Bigelow was working on a devastating investigation of corruption and abuse at the highest levels of power in the UK and beyond. And so Duffy has two impossible problems on his desk: Who killed Lily Bigelow? And what were they trying to hide?


What the Critics Say

"McKinty expertly balances Duffy's tense and suspenseful investigation with the political tensions of the region." ( Publishers Review)
"McKinty manages a second locked-room success...another standout in a superior series, combining terrific plotting with evocative historical detail." ( Booklist)
"The tension between McKinty's competing love of tight, formal puzzles and loose, riffing dialogue is what makes the Duffy novels such a tremendous joy." ( The Guardian)

McKinty delivers again.

Excellent story with lots of twists and turns. Interesting use of Jimmy Saville and other scandals intertwined with Sean Duffy to give an added edge and suspension of disbelief underlaid with gallows humour .

This series just gets better and better

Inspector Sean Duffy is a relentless investigator, who's right into his music and quite fond of the drink and the cigarettes.

He's ably backed by The Crabman and Young Lawson in a captivating tale of intrigue which unfolds at a gentle but persistent pace.

There are none of the daft chase / fight scenes which blight other detective stories, and McKinty's turn of phrase is beguiling.

Gerard Doyle's narration is sublime. Terrific stuff.
