Présentation de l'éditeur

Belfast. January 2005. Acting Detective Sergeant John O'Neill stands over the body of a dead teenager. The corpse was discovered on the building site of a luxury development overlooking the River Lagan. Kneecapped then killed, the body bears the hallmarks of a punishment beating. But this is the new Northern Ireland - the Celtic Tiger purrs, the Troubles are over, the paramilitaries are gone. So who is the boy? Why was he killed?

O'Neill quickly realises that no one cares who the kid is - his colleagues, the politicians, the press - making this case one of the toughest yet. And he needs to crack this one, his first job as Principle Investigator, or he risks ending up back in uniform. Disliked by the Chief Inspector and with his current rank yet to be ratified, O'Neill is in a precarious position.

With acute insight, Matt McGuire's cracking debut exposes the hidden underbelly of the new Northern Ireland, a world of drug dealing, financial corruption and vigilante justice.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A good debut... 23 mai 2013
Par Raven - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
Matt McGuire's debut crime thriller is definitely worth seeking out, particularly if you like authors such as Stuart Neville or the style of Brian McGilloway. The focus of this tale is Belfast, as McGuire skilfully depicts a city playing catch-up in its regeneration (in comparison to say Liverpool or Newcastle), but just below the surface there lurks the shadow of the Troubles and the less salubrious world of drug dealers, financial corruption and vigilantism. From the opening image of a young man's body lying on a desolate piece of wasteland, you know from the outset that this will be a grim tale of the sordid underbelly of a city dying to reinvent itself and McGuire captures this perfectly throughout. His central detective Acting DS John O'Neill is both credible and intriguing, as he is in the unenviable position of being saddled with a difficult murder investigation in order to prove his worth to his superiors, who have a derogatory view of him personally. As the investigation branches out, O'Neill finds himself in deeper trouble, threatening both him and the possibility of progressing in his career.

I found little to fault in terms of location, characterisation and, most importantly, plotting and Dark Dawn held my attention throughout revealing itself as a solid police procedural that truly reflected the problems of Belfast society and the danger of disaffected youths looking to make a less than honest living, whilst always retaining a look backwards as to how these problems have developed. A great debut and an author to watch...
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Credible Modern Detective Story; plus ... 5 août 2013
Par itskerryc - Publié sur
This book is a good captivating read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the genre or has an interest in modern crime in Northern Ireland. The story has good structure and a credible plot, well executed. Matt McGuire has addressed this story well. The characters are realistic and the storyline moves along at a good pace. I particularly liked the way in which the NI political changes were subtly introduced to the story. McGuire was willing to suggest that whilst "The Troubles" are over, it is not possible to simply annul the past and change the future behaviour of the protagonists with the ink from a politicians pen. This plays out well in the book.

Highly recommend this book. There is a slow tension that builds throughout which keeps the novel interesting. I enjoyed that this book delved into the lives of many characters and moved beyond focussing on finding the killer. Cant wait for the next DS O'Neill installment!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Like a young Ian Rankin 24 décembre 2013

I really enjoyed this debut novel from Matt McGuire. I happened to be reading the early Inspector Rebus novels of Ian Rankin, and this was every bit as good--probably even better, really. It provides a gripping story, interesting characters, and a fascinating look at Belfast that rings true. I look forward to many more novels from this guy. Enjoy!
