'McKinty is one of Britain's great contemporary crime writers and the Sean Duffy books are his masterpiece.' Ian Rankin

This time, help isn't coming. This time, Duffy has to save himself.

Belfast 1988: a man has been shot in the back with an arrow. It ain't Injuns and it isn't Robin Hood. But uncovering exactly who has done it will take Detective Inspector Sean Duffy down his most dangerous road yet, a road that leads to three masked gunmen forcing Duffy to dig his own grave.

Hunted by forces unknown, threatened by Internal Affairs and with his relationship on the rocks, Duffy will need all his wits to get out of this investigation in one piece.

Review:

Another cracker in this superior series. (Ian Rankin)

A cracker (Val McDermid)

When it comes to Northern Irish crime fiction, Adrian McKinty forged the path the rest of us follow (Stuart Neville)

Adrian McKinty is one of the great storytellers writing crime fiction today (Don Winslow)

McKinty has all the virtues: smart dialogue, sharp plotting, sense of place, well-rounded characters and a nice line in what might be called cynical lyricism ... Gateway McKinty: you won't stop here (Irish Times)

The tension between McKinty's love of tight, formal puzzles and loose, riffing dialogue is what makes the Duffy novels such a joy (Guardian)

A new Sean Duffy novel is always one of the highlights of a crime reader's year (Sydney Morning Herald)

The sixth in McKinty's increasingly impressive Duffy series ... most enjoyable ... a first-person tail of cheerfully grim fatalism and Prod-Taig banter, chock-a-block with cultural references. (Declan Burke Irish Times)

An unforgettable title ... it perfectly sums up the paranoid atmosphere at Carrickfergus CID in the late 1980s. McKinty moves seamlessly between action and reflection, and his sardonic tone is a delight. (Sunday Times)

Crime is the subject, but Police at the Station and They Don't Look Friendly will prove one of the best novels of any kind this year. (The Australian)
