  7. I think this series is getting better and better 4.5 stars CID Detective Inspector Sean Duffy is a wonderful character, flawed in many ways drinking, smoking hash weed, unlucky in relationships , but uncompromising in his principles and supportive of his fellow peelers An attractive female reporter is found dead in a locked tourist attraction Carrickfergus Castle , either an apparent suicide or a murder victim of the elderly male caretaker She was there covering a Finnish company s due diligence [...]

  9. All my favorite elements A clever murder mystery, a flawed but likable protagonist, fleshed out supporting characters with complex relationships to one another, strong women, and read by Gerard Doyle with his charming Irish inflections I m going to have to read some Detective Sean Duffy stories.

  10. 5 5 5 stars A This was a lucky find at the library What an excellent crime drama The narrator, Gerard Doyle, was new to me but I thought he did a great job I have never read anything by this author before but now will definitely got back to the beginning of the Sean Duffy series Set in Northern Ireland, during the worst years of the Troubles , this book is dark and interesting and kept me glued to my mp3 player from start to finish McKinty does a fantastic job of creating the scene I felt like I [...]

  11. No one should complain its official the Sean Duffy triology is at least a 5 book series with the release of Rain Dogs With the release of information it is perhaps an author s duty to reflect in fiction some of those deadful events we now know are true and Adrian McKinty has a ready made series into which he can set such a story What is it is a locked room mystery and who doesn t enjoy a seemingly impossible whodunit Already a fan this was a book I couldn t put off reading although I have a gre [...]

  12. So thoroughly enjoyed, Rain Dogs, the lastest in Adrian McKinty s Sean McDuffy trilogy On the plot, etc I ve enjoyed a good locked room mystery I definitely want to visit Carrickfergus Castle whenever I finally make it to the area I have to say I picked up on what I thought was a rather obvious clue quite a bit sooner than our boy Detective Inspector Sean McDuffy I m glad they didn t overplay the German Nazi connection in one of the characters pasts, as I found those elements tiresome in Ratline [...]

  13. What if you suspected that an ostensible suicide was really a murder, but one of the locked room variety and it might have been cleverly designed in a way so that you, as a detective inspector who had already solved a different locked room puzzle, would never considered the new murder as a locked room riddle because the real world likelihood of being faced with two such enigmas was completely improbable And yet, according to Bayes Theorem which describes the probability of an event, based on pri [...]

The fifth novel in the very excellent Sean Duffy series This novel offers all that I ve come to look for in these convoluted police procedural murder mystery themed novels.It s the lead character Sean Duffy and the settings and times depicted that keep me coming back for This novel involves the apparent suicide of a young woman journalist in very unusual circumstances It s up to Sean Duffy and his team to find the answers This novel has of an international flavor as the search for the truth se [...]

  15. I kept thinking I had read this book experiencing deja vu over and over again But I know I hadn t In spite of that, this was another very good McKinty book I loved that Duffy was in fewer physically perilous situations aside from the tilt bomb under his car, and the general, daily peril of life and police work in the time of The Troubles , and was not left at death s door at any point in the story, and actually ended up with the girl, the perpetrator though not directly , and a bit of happiness, [...]

  16. This was a solid 4.5 stars Duffy is as incorrigible as ever, drinking too much and butting heads with higher ups and really dangerous sorts This begins with a kind of locked room mystery, but as Duffy has already dealt with one locked mystery case in his career, the chances of a second are almost impossible This convinces him that this case was designed as a locked mystery that he was certain to investigate as it occurs in Carrickfergus Castle, right on his turf In other words, he knows it s a c [...]

Another riot of a tale featuring Detective Sean Duffy This time the centrepiece is the apparent suicide of an English reporter tangled up with a delegation from Finland, an ex cop turned private security, a young offender s institution and even Jimmy Saville Of course, it s all far complicated than it seems, and Duffy sets out to untangle things with the help of his brilliant supporting cast McKinty tells the story with the perfect blend of black humour and grit, writing with an easy style that [...]

  21. First and foremost, Sean Duffy is one of the great characters in Crime Fiction today Right above Rebus in my opinion So many police detectives in Crime Fiction are troubled and flawed characters This combined with the subject matter can often lead to a gloomy read This is not the case with Adrian McKinty s Sean Duffy Rain Dogs is Duffy s fifth outing and yet again I read through this book very quickly Its a great story, with great characters, great dialogue and wit It is one of those books that [...]

  23. Gun Street Girl was my favorite Sean Duffy book 4 in the series so naturally I was interested to see how the next installment held up, and, true to form, Rain Dogs is a great follow up or listen, thanks to Gerard Doyle.Rain Dogs is the perfect, though complex take on the popular locked room mystery sub crime genre A female reporter is found dead of a supposed suicide in the courtyard of Carrickfergus Castle, having jumped from atop the castle However, once Duffy, Lawson, and Crabby investigate, [...]

  24. This is my fifth Sean Duffy book and I always finish wanting This was supposed to be a trilogy and I m so glad it s continued First the background Duffy is an Irish Catholic policeman in Northern Ireland during the 1980s Anyone with even a cursory knowledge of Irish history in the last century will know that is during The Troubles and might guess that this makes Duffy a bit unique right from the start He s smart, clever, and doesn t let a question go unanswered He s also got enough attitude to [...]

  25. Okay, I m convinced Totally taken in by this series featuring and Catholic policeman in Protestant Northern Ireland And a big fan of narrator Gerard Doyle who adds so much to the book with his impeccable characterizations, accents, and capturing of the grim tone I ll need to go back and read the first 3 I did write about the 4th This time the beleaguered DI Sean Duffy provides security for a visit by Mohammed Ali but then fancies a young Financial Times reporter only to be called in to investiga [...]

  26. I won an ARC of this book from the publisher through a First Reads giveaway Thank you to both.Let me first say that years ago I read Adrian McKinty s Michael Forsythe trilogy and thought it was fantastic I wasn t quite as impressed with this story However, I believe a large part of that is due to the fact that I hadn t realized this was I believe the fifth book in an ongoing series There were some references to past cases that were lost on me While I did like the mystery in this book, I felt tha [...]

  27. Fifth outing of Detective Inspector Sean Duffy Duffy s personal life is yet again on the downspin, as Beth, the girl who s recently moved in with him, is very decisively moving out Duffy, who can be morose at the best of times, isn t taking this too well Although I won t say that he doesn t have time to worry about that, because, being Duffy, he manages to find some, most of it is quickly taken up with two cases an irritating theft in a local hotel, which unfortunately involves some badly needed [...]

  28. McKinty s Sean Duffy is my favorite fictional detective Smart, persistent, erudite, witty, kind Rain Dogs a very satisfying read Sentences often lyrical Characters rich Plot plausible.
