The Emerald Lie
A Jack Taylor NovelBook - 2016 | First edition
Ken Bruen, the Godfather of the modern Irish crime novel ("Irish Independent"), is beloved for his black humor, verse-like prose, and irascible protagonist Jack Taylor, an ex-cop who is as addicted to trouble as he is to Jameson, pills, and pop culture. In "The Emerald Lie," the latest terror to be visited upon the dark Galway streets arrives in a most unusual form: a Cambridge graduate who becomes murderous over split infinitives, dangling modifiers, and any other sign of bad grammar. Meanwhile, Jack is approached by a grieving father with a pocketful of cash on offer if Jack will help exact revenge on those responsible for his daughter s brutal rape and murder. Though hesitant to get involved, Jack agrees to get a read on the likely perpetrators.
