the land of opportunity: but not for PI Jack Taylor, who's just been refused entry. Disappointed and bitter, he thinks that an encounter with an over-friendly stranger in an airport bar is the least of his problems. Except that this stranger seems to know rather more than he should about Jack. Jack thinks no more of their meeting and resumes his old life in Galway. But when he's called to investigate a student murder --
connected to an elusive Mr K --
he remembers the stranger. Is he really is who he says he is? After several more murders and too many coincidental encounters, Jack believes he may have met his nemesis. Could he really have taken on the devil himself?
Responsibility: Ken Bruen.
