Overview

The Devil (Jack Taylor Series #8) by Ken Bruen

America—the land of opportunity, a place where economic prosperity beckons: but not for PI Jack Taylor, who's just been refused entry. Disappointed and bitter, he thinks that an encounter with an overly friendly stranger in an airport bar is the least of his problems. Except that this stranger seems to know much more than he should about Jack. Jack thinks no more of their meeting and resumes his old life in Galway.

But when he's called to investigate a student murder—connected to an elusive Mr. K—he remembers the man from the airport. Is the stranger really who he says he is? With the help of the Jameson, Jack struggles to make sense of it all. After several more murders and too many coincidental encounters, Jack believes he may have met his nemesis. But why has he been chosen? And could he really have taken on the devil himself?

Suspenseful, haunting, and totally unique, The Devil is Bruen at his very best.

Like a perfect slow poured pint of the dark, Ken Bruen's novels fill the senses, as his words cascade and settle on the soul. Pure perfection. Page after page. Book after book.

Interesting tale s Jack Taylor takes on Mr. K, aka the Divil. Everyone who does a good deed to Taylor turns up dead,so he finally decides that is how Mr. K must end up as well. It's the getting there that is most interesting, with some philosophy on the evil one thrown in for good measure. I thought it was a nice try; too bad the Devil has so many forms.
