9780802123565: Green Hell (Jack Taylor)

The award-winning crime writer Ken Bruen, called the best-kept literary secret in Ireland” by the Independent, is as joyously unapologetic in his writing as he is wickedly poetic, mixing high and low with hypnotic mastery. In the previous book in the series, Purgatory, ex-cop Jack Taylor had finally turned his life around, only to be taunted back into fighting Galway’s corruption by a twisted serial killer named C33. In the new novel Green Hell, Bruen’s dark angel of a protagonist has again hit rock bottom: one of his best friends is dead, the other has stopped speaking to him; he has given up battling his addiction to alcohol and pills; and his firing from the Irish national police, the Guards, is ancient history. But Jack isn’t about to embark on a self-improvement plan. Instead, he has taken up a vigilante case against a respected professor of literature at the University of Galway who has a violent habit his friends in high places are only too happy to ignore. And when Jack rescues a preppy American student on a Rhodes Scholarship from a couple of kid thugs, he also unexpectedly gains a new sidekick, who abandons his thesis on Beckett to write a biography of Galway’s most magnetic rogue.

Between pub crawls and violent outbursts, Jack’s vengeful plot against the professor soon spirals toward chaos. Enter Emerald, an edgy young Goth who could either be the answer to Jack’s problems, or the last ripped stitch in his undoing. Ireland may be known as a green Eden,” but in Jack Taylor’s world, the national color has a decidedly lethal sheen.

Review:

An Amazon best book of the month in the mystery/thriller category
A Publishers Weekly book of the week

Taylor is a classic figure: an ex-cop turned seedy private eye . . . The book’s pleasure comes from listening to Taylor’s eloquent rants, studded with references to songs and books. His voice is wry and bittersweet, but somehow always hopeful.” Seattle Times

Ken Bruen, Ireland’s first real crime novelist . . . the Godfather of the modern Irish crime novel . . . Bruen writes in machine gun fashion, his words verbal bullets that rip through the veneer of the safe bourgeois Catholic society in which he was reared . . . The acerbic wit and off-the-wall comments throughout all the books are somewhat reminiscent of the work of Raymond Chandler and Peter Cheyenne.” Irish Times

"Ken Bruen doesn't need a lot of words to tell his tales of perpetually falling Irish angel Jack Taylor he knows the right ones. Bruen gets more done in a paragraph, a word, even a fragment of a word, than most writers get in an entire four-hundred page doorstop. If his prose was any sharper, your eyeballs would bleed." Mystery Scene

One sign of a winning detective series is how much fun the author has with the creation. In the 11th Jack Taylor novel, Green Hell, Ken Bruen is having a shameless good time . . . Go ahead crack open Green Hell and have some fun.” Shelf Awareness

The Taylor series is generally very pleasurable to read . . . filled with a glorious love of the language and an engaging protagonist who is unlike almost any other. It’s unclear at this point how many more go-arounds Taylor has left in him . . . but it will be a privilege to be with him for as long as he’s able.” Strand Magazine

Called "the best-kept literary secret in Ireland" by London's Independent, Ken Bruen is as joyously unapologetic in his writing as he is wickedly poetic, with rapid-fire intensity.

Here, Jack has again hit bottom, with one of his best friends dead, the other not speaking to him, and a relapse in his addiction to alcohol and pills. But when he goes vigilante against a university professor with a violent habit and friends in high places covering for him, Jack finds himself tangled up with an American Rhodes scholar and a Goth girl named Emerald.
