Sinopsis:

cross /krôs/ n., v., & adj.



1 an ancient instrument of torture


2 in a very bad humour


3 a punch thrown across an opponent's punch



Jack Taylor brings death and pain to everyone he loves. His only hope of redemption - his surrogate son, Cody - is lying in hospital in a coma. At least he still has Ridge, his old friend from the Guards, though theirs is an unorthodox relationship. When she tells him that a boy has been crucified in Galway city, he agrees to help her search for the killer.



Jack's investigations take him to many of his old haunts where he encounters ghosts, dead and living. Everyone wants something from him, but Jack is not sure he has anything left to give. Maybe he should sell up, pocket his Euros and get the hell out of Galway like everyone else seems to be doing.



Then the sister of the murdered boy is burned to death, and Jack decides he must hunt down the killer, if only to administer his own brand of rough justice.

Review:

"A compelling portrait of a haunted man ... Where Bruen really scores is in his intimate explorations of Taylor's character, Galway City and of modern Ireland." (Guardian)

"If you like yout crime thrillers to challenge the way you thing then Bruen's your man." (Shots Mag)

"I cannot recommend this series highly enough - if you like stark reality, if you can handle one man making his own decisions about his life ... then do yourself a favour and read Cross." (Eurocrime.com)

"Cross is vintage Ken Bruen. Clipped prose and mordant humour are coupled to a plot that's just about as violent as anything he has ever written. Bruen has the uncanny ability to describe the most touching of moments with heart-rending effectiveness and lyrical beauty." (Mean Streets)

"One has to wonder how much more punishment Bruen can put on poor Taylor before the man cracks up irretrievably. With writing like Ken's of course - punchy, rhythmic,dark and affecting - we wouldn't have it any other way." (Crime Scene Scotland)
