McKinty has long been purveying a blend of muscular lyricism in which collide the brutalities of the crime novel and a knowing, self-effacing literary style... an incendiary, adrenalin-fuelled thriller (Declan Burke Irish Independent)
An intelligent novel of suspense about cultural identity... In trademark fashion, McKinty winds up his provocative tale with a violent and memorable final act (Publishers Weekly)
The talented McKinty does his usual first-rate job of making you like the characters he likes (Kirkus Reviews)
... his amazing novel. It has riveting mystery, politics of just about every shade, thrills on almost every page.. I've rarely read a novel that had it all - human and drug trafficking, Hollywood excesses, illegals, ferocious vengeance - but what I found most compulsive was the wondrous compassion of the book. It moved me in ways I never anticipated. This is going to be the BIG BOOK of 2009 (Ken Bruen)
'A master of modern noir, up there with Lehane and Ellroy, Fifty Grand is a blast... showcasing McKinty's brutal lyricism' (John O'Connell Guardian)
'Adrian McKinty is one of the great storytellers writing crime fiction today.' (Don Winslow)
'When it comes to Northern Irish crime fiction, Adrian McKinty forged the path the rest of us follow.' (Stuart Neville)
Cuban cop Mercado has a score to settle, on behalf of a deadbeat dad, a 'traitor' who skipped free from Castro's control to set up a new life working illegally in Colorado. He settled in a ski resort popular with the Hollywood set, where the facade is maintained by the immigrant cleaners and labourers who work for below minimum wage while the local sheriff is bribed to turn a blind eye. Hernandez Snr.'s dreams of fortune and freedom came to a swift end when he was killed in a hit-and-run accident.
Sworn to avenge his death, Mercado has some obstacles to overcome - not least getting out of Cuba, where visas are as elusive as constant electricity.
Switching back and forth between heat-soaked Havana and the icy luxury of the mountainside resort, Fifty Grand is an audacious thriller from an acknowledged talent -- and an incendiary debut for a new hero.
'McKinty is one of Britain's great contemporary crime writers and the Sean Duffy books are his masterpiece.'
