In the Galway Silence Summary

In the Galway Silence by Ken Bruen

The latest Jack Taylor novel from the Godfather of Irish noir.

After too much tragedy and violence, Jack Taylor might have at long last found contentment. Of course, he still knocks back too much Jameson and dabbles in uppers, but he has a new woman in his life, a freshly bought apartment, and little sign of trouble on the horizon, unless you count looking after his girlfriend's spoilt nine-year-old.

But once again, trouble comes to him, this time in the form of wealthy Frenchman Pierre Renaud, who wants Jack to investigate the double murder of his twin sons. Entitled, drug-addled, les enfants terribles were bound to a wheelchair, mouths glued shut and pushed off the pier.

He shouldn't, but Jack reluctantly agrees to investigate and it opens the door to the past again...

'Nobody writes like Ken Bruen, with his lilting Irish prose and his taste for the gallows humor' NEW YORK TIMES.
'As good a read as you'll come across this year' IRISH INDEPENDENT.
'A gritty, brutal tale told with its author's typical lyricism' DAILY MAIL.
'Bruen is on top form' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.

In the Galway Silence Reviews

'[Bruen] is an Emerald noir maestro' Sunday Independent.
'Widely regarded as one of Ireland's most original voices in crime fiction, Ken Bruen's dark Jack Taylor novels - delivered in precise, skeletal prose - have won critical plaudits and myriad fans around the world ... his latest chapter in Taylor's life is a bleak, gripping slice of noir Irish life, but as good a read as you'll come across this year' Irish Independent.
'Wonderfully evocative of Ireland, this is a gritty, brutal tale told with its author's typical lyricism' Daily Mail.
'Ken Bruen, from his blistering debut The Guards, has created a Galway febrile with menace' RTE Guide.
'An explosion of wit, repartee, murder, vigilantism and pandemonium ... Long-running series can often lose their way; not a bit of it here. This may well be the best Jack Taylor in many a year and that's saying something - fast, funny, cleverly plotted and hard hitting' Nudge Book.
'Exudes a nihilistic thrill in smashing the crime fiction conventions to smithereens' Irish Times.
'For those who like their crime novels gritty, grimy and pure, pure Galway' Connaught Telegraph.
'Particularly for those looking for a re-acquaintance with the Irish identity; dark-as-sin humour is included ... The main strength of this novel comes from the protagonist Jack himself, a character unabashedly seeped in the Irish zeitgeist and noir-styled melancholy ... The impressively well-characterised Jack will guide you through with an engaged mind and a wry smile' Irish Examiner.
'Bruen is one of Ireland's most original voices in crime fiction, with his stunning, poetic look at the shadowy side of life. His precise, skeletal, yet strangely lyrical prose, unorthodox wordplay, dark-as-sin humour and wonderful evocation of the country and its people have carried this long-running series to triumph after triumph' Crime Review.
