Publisher's Summary

The second novel from the author of the Baileys Prize-winning The Glorious Heresies.
Like all 20-year-olds, Ryan Cusack is trying to get his head around who he is. This is not a good time for his boss to exploit his dual heritage by opening a new black market route from Italy to Ireland. It is certainly not a good time for his adored girlfriend to decide he's irreparably corrupted. And he really wishes he hadn't accidentally caught the eye of an ornery grandmother who fancies herself his saviour. There may be a way clear of the chaos in the business proposals of music promoter Colm and in the attention of the charming, impulsive Natalie. But now that his boss' ambitions have rattled the city, Ryan is about to find out what he's made of, and it might be that chaos is in his blood.

Loved Glorious Heresies but was disappointed with this. Ryan needs to have something special if we're going to root for him but despite his early promise he's really just like his Dad. I also thought the violence too protracted, it just got boring. Not enough of Corrine either!

This book is getting a hard time

Any additional comments?

This book is getting a hard time, and when you compare it to it's predecessor The Glorious Heresies you can see why. TGH is utterly brilliant, incredibly well written. This feels like a sequel that wasn't needed but that you welcomed because it could have been more of the same and you were greedy for it, however it ends up leaving you feeling a bit dirty and looking at TGH differently as a result.

The story itself isn't bad, we already have our main characters, but somehow it didn't work. It felt too repetitive, too many break ups and punch ups and I wanted more. I wanted more of the main character in Ryan, but have ended up not really liking him as a result. If there's another book around him I will read it, this hasn't put me off and Lisa McInerney is clearly a fantastic writer, I will just hope for better.
