Part 13 of the Jack Taylor series.

							As well-versed in politics, pop culture, and crime fiction as he is ill-fated in life, Jack Taylor is recovering from a mistaken medical diagnosis and a failed suicide attempt. In need of money-and with "former cop" on his resume-Jack has been hired as a night-shift security guard. But his Ukrainian boss has Jack in mind for a bit of off-the-books work. He wants Jack to find what some claim to be the first true book of heresy, The Red Book, which is currently in the possession of a rogue priest who is hiding out in Galway after fleeing the Vatican. Despite Jack's distaste for priests of any stripe, the money is too good to turn down. When Em, the many-faced woman who has had a vise on Jack's heart and mind for the past two years, reappears and turns out to be entangled with the story of The Red Book, too, Jack is led down ever more mysterious and lethal pathways...

“Bruen is in top form, and, although everything Taylor touches seems to turn to ash, he embodies such humanity that readers will be unable to resist rooting for him.” - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Events unfold in the most mannered prose since the glory days of James Ellroy against the distant echoes of Donald Trump's shockingly successful presidential campaign . . . Dispensing with the genre's customary pleasures . . . Bruen still manages to deliver prose that's both tough and elegiac.” - Kirkus Reviews

“Galway is darker than ever here, and the ghosts that haunt Jack―all the people he ever cared for―grow in number.” - Booklist

“Narrator Gerry O'Brien takes listeners on a wild ride that includes a terrific blend of pop culture, politics, and the search for a mysterious book.” - Audiofile
