Abstract:

New York Times bestselling author Stephan Talty's acclaimed fiction debut, Black Irish, won him comparisons to such thriller masters as Jo Nesb, Karin Slaughter, and Tana French. Now, his chilling new novel brings back intrepid heroine Absalom Kearney, a driven police detective with a haunted past, trying to make a difference in a troubled town. Hangman, Hangman, what do you see' Four little girls, as cute as can be. The eerie schoolyard chant still sends ripples of horror through North Buffalo. Not so long ago, serial killer Marcus Flynn preyed upon the community's teenaged daughters'until he was cornered and shot in the head. But Flynn lived, carrying to prison the nickname "Hangman," along with the secret of his last victim's fate. Homicide cop Abbie Kearney wasn't around during Hangman's reign of terror. She hadn't yet come home to wear her dad's old badge in the tough Irish American stronghold known as "the County." Abbie had never experienced firsthand the horror of Hangman. Until now. Hangman, Hangman, where do they go' Down on the ground, where the daffodils grow. A corrections officer lies dead, a prison van stands empty ... and somewhere out there, the monster who condemned innocents to death at the end of a rope watches and waits to strike again. Abbie leads a desperate manhunt through a city driven to its knees by fear, matching wits with a predator as brilliant as he is elusive. But as more victims are claimed, a rising tide of secrecy, paranoia, and politics forces her to realize that stepping beyond the law may be the only way to find justice. Because with each passing hour, the stakes grow higher'and Hangman's noose gets tighter. Praise for Stephan Talty's Black Irish "Abbie Kearney is one of the most intriguing new suspense protagonists in memory, and Black Irish marks the captivating start of a brilliant thriller series."'Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series "A memorable story of betrayal and vengeance ... Talty does a fine job portraying the cohesiveness of the Irish, their loyalty to one another, and their obsession with their history."'Publishers Weekly "Luxuriantly cinematic ... a compulsively readable crime thriller ... Move over V.I. Warshawski; Buffalo gets its own crime novel heroine."'The Buffalo News "A riveting read ... a suspenseful debut novel with a circuitous plot."'Booklist (starred review) "Talty shows his chops when recounting [Buffalo's] Irish roots."'Kirkus Reviews From the Hardcover edition.
