    EXCERPT The beeper began to whine at 4.27pm on Wednesday September 25, 1983 It was repeating a shrill C sharp at 4 second intervals, which meant for those of us who had bothered to read the manual that it was a Class 1 emergency This was a general alert being sent to every off duty policeman, police reservist, and soldier in Northern Ireland There were only five class 1 emergencies and three of them were a Soviet nuclear strike, a Soviet invasion, and what the civil servants who d written EXCERPT The beeper began to whine at 4.27pm on Wednesday September 25, 1983 It was repeating a shrill C sharp at 4 second intervals, which meant for those of us who had bothered to read the manual that it was a Class 1 emergency This was a general alert being sent to every off duty policeman, police reservist, and soldier in Northern Ireland There were only five class 1 emergencies and three of them were a Soviet nuclear strike, a Soviet invasion, and what the civil servants who d written the manual had nonchalantly called an extraterrestrial trespass So you d think that I would have dashed across the room, grabbed the beeper, and run with a mounting sense of panic to the nearest telephone You d have thought wrong For a start, I was as high as Skylab, baked on Turkish black cannabis resin that I d cooked myself and rolled into sweet Virginia tobacco And then there was the fact that I was playing Galaxian on my Atari 5200 with the sound on the TV maxed and the curtains pulled for a full dramatic and immersive experience I didn t notice the beeper because it s insistent whine sounded a lot like the red ships peeling off from the main Galaxian fleet as they swooped in for their oh so predictable attack They didn t present any difficulty at all despite the sick genius of their teenage programmers back in Osaka because I had the moves and the skill and all they had were ones and zeros I slid the joystick to the left, hugged the corners of the screen, and easily dodged their layered cluster bomb assault That survived, I eased into the middle of the screen and killed the entire squadron as the ships attempted to get back into formation It was only when the screen was blank and I saw that I was nudging close to my previous high score that I noticed the grey plastic rectangle sitting on the coffee table, beeping and vibrating with what in retrospect seemed to bethan its usual vehemence I threw a pillow over the device, sat back down on the rug, and continued with the level The phone began to ring and it went on and on and finally,out of boredom than curiosity, I paused the game and answered it ABOUT THIS BOOK A spectacular escape and a man hunt that could change the future of a nation and lay one man s past to rest Sean Duffy s got nothing And when you ve got nothing to lose, you have everything to gain So when MI5 come knocking, Sean knows exactly what they want, and what he ll want in return, but he hasn t got the first idea how to get it Of course he s heard about the spectacular escape of IRA man Dermot McCann from Her Majesty s Maze prison And he knew, with chilly certainty, that their paths would cross But finding Dermot leads Sean to an old locked room mystery, and into the kind of danger where you can lose as easily as winning From old betrayals and ancient history to 1984 s most infamous crime, Sean tries not to fall behind in the race to annihilation Can he outrun the most skilled terrorist the IRA ever created And will the past catch him first MY THOUGHTS Take every dream that s breathing,Find every boat that s leaving,Shoot all the lights in the cafe,And in the morning I ll be gone Tom Waits, I ll Be Gone, 1987 I love this book, and this series I love Sean Duffy, and Adrian McKinty I even love Gerard Doyle, the narrator Lovely voice Liquid chocolate I can t believe that McKinty had to resort to driving Uber to make ends meet He has such talent, and a warped sense of humour that I admire greatly You wouldn t think that there would be much to laugh about in a novel written around the hunt for an escaped IRA terrorist, but there is That woman you saw walking to work, and taking the long way, earbuds in, i pod clutched in her hand, laughing out loud, was no escaped psychiatric patient That was me listening to In the Morning I ll be Gone McKinty has created an irreverent, wiseass of a detective who has an ingrained sense of what is right, which is not always what the police force needs or wants I have just read physical book this time In The Morning I ll Be Gone for the second time This is the book that introduced me to Adrian McKinty, and his Detective, Sean Duffy.I loved it so much that I have started the series from the beginning, hence the reread Brilliant series, and in my opinion this, the third in the series, is the best.so far.McKinty s descriptive powers are superb He has me believing that Belfast must be the most dismal city in the world A dreary, typical Belfast scene low clouds, power station chimneys pumping out grey death, greasy pavements, police Land Rovers, army helicopters, a rent a mob of religious nuts, TV camera crews hunting for visual sound bites for the evening news And thank you to Marty, who pointed out to me that all the book titles in this series are taken from the songs of Tom Waits And that is another thing I love about this series, the musical referencesthey have brought back memories, and sometimes confusion I continue to have great fun listening to the music Duffy listens to as I read Unreservedly recommended Quotes that I have particularly enjoyed from In the Morning I ll Be Gone It was the detectives who actually went around solving the crimes I mean, who knew what regular cops actually did I d been a regular policeman for the last year and I still didn t know He d been recruited at St Andrews because of his proficiency in foreign languages He d been studying Russian literature but could also read Czech, Polish and Serbo Croat no doubt these skills were why they had put him on the Norther Island desk THE AUTHOR Adrian McKinty is an Irish novelist He was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and grew up in Victoria

    It s been awhile since I ve listened to one of the Sean Duffy series I had forgotten the dry sense of humor which permeates the entire book I d also forgotten what a way with words McKinty has his ability to paint a scene so you can see it clearly This is the perfect atmospheric mystery You re taken right back to 1984 Northern Ireland and The Troubles Sean has been forced to retire from the police force But soon enough, MI5 comes calling and gets him reinstated in return for his help tr It s been awhile since I ve listened to one of the Sean Duffy series I had forgotten the dry sense of humor which permeates the entire book I d also forgotten what a way with words McKinty has his ability to paint a scene so you can see it clearly This is the perfect atmospheric mystery You re taken right back to 1984 Northern Ireland and The Troubles Sean has been forced to retire from the police force But soon enough, MI5 comes calling and gets him reinstated in return for his help trying to unearth an IRA master bomber In exchange for information, Sean agrees to investigate a cold case, a classic locked room murder, in the vein of Christie, Poe and Collins This isn t an evenly paced book As you would expect from a cold case investigation, there s lots of going over the same information But McKinty keeps a sense of suspense going throughout It finishes with a bang and kept me listening long after I needed to move on to other things And my curiosity has been piqued by a minor character that shows up here named Michael Forsythe Could this be the same MF that shows up in Dead I May Well Be Gerard Doyle does a fabulous job with the narration He totally embodies Sean

    Early in the third novel in the Sean Duffy series, Duffy, a detective in the Royal Ulster Constabulary, is booted off the force for an offence he didn t commit Duffy is a brilliant detective, but he s also a wiseass of the first magnitude who prefers to work in his own way and who has little tolerance for his superiors, especially when they don t see things the way he does In consequence, his superiors take advantage of a trumped up charge to get him out of their hair.The series takes place in Early in the third novel in the Sean Duffy series, Duffy, a detective in the Royal Ulster Constabulary, is booted off the force for an offence he didn t commit Duffy is a brilliant detective, but he s also a wiseass of the first magnitude who prefers to work in his own way and who has little tolerance for his superiors, especially when they don t see things the way he does In consequence, his superiors take advantage of a trumped up charge to get him out of their hair.The series takes place in the Northern Ireland of the early 1980s the time of the Troubles, when Protestants and Catholics were at open war with each other Duffy, a Catholic, has always been a fish out of water in the Protestant RUC Most Catholics think he s a turncoat and the Protestants aren t sure they can trust him, but Duffy has always held the naive belief that the two intractable opponents should be able to work together.Now off the force, Duffy spends his days drinking, listening to music, and attempting to figure out what he wants to do with the rest of his life But then Dermot McCann, an IRA explosives expert, escapes from a high security prison with a number of other IRA members British intelligence services fear that McCann and his comrades may be planning a major campaign of terrorist bombings directed against the English Duffy and McCann were childhood friends and thus agents from MI5 show up at Duffy s door and ask him to help hunt down McCann Duffy uses the situation to leverage an apology for his mistreatment and a restoration of his job.The hunt is a challenging one, and along the way, Duffy finds himself entangled in the death of a young woman who died inside a locked room The mother of the young woman believes that her daughter was murdered and if Duffy can prove it, the woman may be able to help him in his hunt for McCann when virtually no one else will.This is another very good entry in this series Sean Duffy continues to be a very appealing character and McKinty spins a very entertaining and gripping tale If you haven t yet discovered this series, it would be better to start with the first, The Cold Cold Ground, and work your way forward This is a character and a series worth getting to know

    On 25 September 1983, 38 IRA members broke out of the Maze Prison, a high security facility that billed itself as one of the most escape proof prisons in the world While 19 escapees were recaptured within days, others remained at large for years, and to this day the whereabouts of two escapees remain a mystery On 12 October 1984 the IRA set off a bomb in the Grand Brighton Hotel where the Conservative Party including Prime Minister Thatcher was holding their conference.Like the DeLorean fact On 25 September 1983, 38 IRA members broke out of the Maze Prison, a high security facility that billed itself as one of the most escape proof prisons in the world While 19 escapees were recaptured within days, others remained at large for years, and to this day the whereabouts of two escapees remain a mystery On 12 October 1984 the IRA set off a bomb in the Grand Brighton Hotel where the Conservative Party including Prime Minister Thatcher was holding their conference.Like the DeLorean factory debacle in the previous entry in the Sean Duffy series, McKinty uses these two real events to ground Duffy s latest entry McKinty has perfected both the atmosphere of hopelessness, as well as further developing Duffy s character Duffy s ex girlfriend gives it to him straight, saying she thinks he may be manic depressive, drinks too much, etc Duffy then goes and pulls a stunt well beyond the occasional smoking of hash in his shed In fact, the single episode is so shocking, it was clear that Duffy was not completely sane Yet later, when an interviewee seems frightened of him, he says to himself, He didn t know me Maybe I was one of those bent peelers you were always reading about in the papers One of those coppers who was capable of anything, not recognizing himself in that description at all.The story comes down to a locked room mystery, and McKinty gives a nod to those who have used the idea before Duffy reads as many locked room mysteries as he possibly can, hoping for a possible solution I was surprised at the solution or I would have been if I wasn t the type to read the ending first, which I am and for not a lot of action happening, McKinty manages to keep the suspense high until an edge of your seat climax

    This was my favorite book in the series so far I listened to the audio and the narrator has really grown on me He does a brilliant job, especially with the humor I don t think I ve ever laughed this much while listening to a book As always his descriptions of Ireland during the troubles is amazing, but this time he takes it even further, by describing how it feels like when in a bombed building The locked room case was very intriguing, and I loved the ending of the book So if you enjoy pol This was my favorite book in the series so far I listened to the audio and the narrator has really grown on me He does a brilliant job, especially with the humor I don t think I ve ever laughed this much while listening to a book As always his descriptions of Ireland during the troubles is amazing, but this time he takes it even further, by describing how it feels like when in a bombed building The locked room case was very intriguing, and I loved the ending of the book So if you enjoy police mysteries, humor and gorgeous accents then add this to your list

    The structure of trilogies must have some appeal for McKinty, not just because he has previous form From the outside you can see that it could be quite a challenge to build a character s life and explore events in a proscribed number of books And then it s over For this reader it s a very bitter sweet experience Especially when, from book number one, this series cemented itself as a big part of January s expectations.Part of the appeal is obviously the central character Sean Duffy An outsid The structure of trilogies must have some appeal for McKinty, not just because he has previous form From the outside you can see that it could be quite a challenge to build a character s life and explore events in a proscribed number of books And then it s over For this reader it s a very bitter sweet experience Especially when, from book number one, this series cemented itself as a big part of January s expectations.Part of the appeal is obviously the central character Sean Duffy An outsider in his own country and his own community, it s that viewpoint that makes him such an effective policeman Not only is he not beholden, he sees everything in a slightly different manner That idea of the cop as the ultimate outsider s nothing new, but there s something about the way that McKinty has built this scenario within the framework of the Troubles with the complications of religion, and ethnicity muddied further by cops versus crims, and the branches of the cops versus each other It s a multi layered environment drawn out elegantly by some clever, atmospheric and pointed story telling.It also doesn t hurt that IN THE MORNING I LL BE GONE opens with one of those openings we ve come to expect The beeper began to whine at 4.27pm on Wednesday, 25 September 1983 It was repeating a shrill C sharp at four second intervals which meant for those of us who had bothered to read the manual that it was a Class 1 emergency This was a general alert being sent to every off duty policeman, police reservist and soldier in Northern Ireland There were only five Class 1 emergencies and three of them were a Soviet nuclear strike, a Soviet invasion and what the civil servants who d written the manual had nonchalantly called an extra terrestrial trespass From that moment on, until the final page is read, and the book is hugged just a little bit, the story builds Set as it is in the time of the Troubles, there are cultural references throughout music, clothes, and to the complications of life at that time There s classical music references which cleverly reflect Duffy s mood and thinking, and there s humour Beautifully dry, clever, dropped into the middle of conversations, type humour I had to admit that he was impressive You noticed the hair first Kennedy hair was far in advance of anything Ireland had to offer It was space age hair It was hair for the new millennium Irish hair was stuck somewhere in 1927 Kennedy hair had put man on the fucking moon Built into all of the cultural and personality there is also a solid plot, interwoven with a good old fashioned locked room mystery Which works not just because of the timeframe, it s a good brain teaser But the main focus remains that most difficult of issues, well known from the Troubles terrorism and the IRA Weaving the fictional into fact worked particularly well here, putting the timeframe into a definite context, and providing a real sense of the threat, and the grievance which gave rise to it.If you re a fan of McKinty s books you ll also notice a Michael Forsythe cameo Elegantly done and informative clever into the bargain.But then informative, clever, engaging and an undeniable favourite, IN THE MORNING I LL BE GONE most definitely was The only downside is that it s the third in the trilogy, and it s impossible not to feel very sad about that.http www.austcrimefiction.org revie

    3.5 starsI love having an audio series that s a sure thing Most of the Sean Duffy books are light on the violence yet you always come away knowing how Ireland felt during the Troubles The violence is on the periphery like a constant companion but with this one Sean became so entangled it s no wonder he drinks so much.Sean s career is well and truly down the toilet He is thinking of moving to Spain where he can livecomfortably on his police pension But when several IRA prisoners includ 3.5 starsI love having an audio series that s a sure thing Most of the Sean Duffy books are light on the violence yet you always come away knowing how Ireland felt during the Troubles The violence is on the periphery like a constant companion but with this one Sean became so entangled it s no wonder he drinks so much.Sean s career is well and truly down the toilet He is thinking of moving to Spain where he can livecomfortably on his police pension But when several IRA prisoners including an old school acquaintance escape the Maze prison MI 5 comes calling Sean is all of a sudden in a position to negotiate himself back into his job but that will mean he has to find Dermot This search for Dermot diverges the story into multiple trails, all of them very entertaining to listen to Especially the locked room mystery.A very satisfying audio experience
