    QUICK READING

    The writer has a very unique writing style. It is writtten in short paragraphs. Each paragraph is to the point. Very quick reading; it can be read in one long day or in a couple of days. Interesting story, well written. Not a great book, but enjoyable none the less.

    Fans of Mr. Bruen will appreciate his New York Noir style Irish stew.

    Clever sociopathic Galway, Ireland cop Matthew Patrick ¿Shea¿ O'Shea arranges through extortion and blakcmail for a one-year assignment with NYPD as part of a police exchange program. The Irish cop is teamed with abusive New York cop Kurt ¿Kebar¿ Browski.------------------ Matthew knows he must hide his vice as his host city will not tolerate him choking to death beautiful women with lovely long swan necks. Shea realizes quickly his partner is as crazy as he is perhaps even sicker as Matthew gains more pleasure than he does with roughing up someone. The two nasty police officers seem to work well together as poster-boys of police brutality until Kebar introduces Shea to his retarded sister, who has a beautiful long swan neck.--------------------- These two brutal cops who believe in taking no prisoners star in Ken Bruen¿s deep character study of two sadistic police officers abusing their authorities not so much to catch felons even but more for personal pleasure of sorts. The plot is somewhat limited though readers anticipate a violent showdown between the lead police officers once the long swan neck sibling is involved. Fans of Mr. Bruen will appreciate his New York Noir style Irish stew.------------ Harriet Klausner

    Ken Bruen does it again

    Once again K.B. has written a page burning novel (or epic poem) about the very darkest side of our souls. Started this one and didn't put it down until the final period.

    Quick Read!

    This book was such a quick read that I read it in a few hours. I couldn't put it down which is a true testament to Ken Bruen. Great read!
