Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The solid sequel to 2003's explosive, lyrical Dead I Well May Be catches up with young Michael Forsythe as he chafes at the restrictions of life in the federal witness-protection program, which is where he ended up after crippling the New York Irish Mob operation that sponsored his trip from the old country. Incautious about what he wishes for, Forsythe soon finds himself conscripted into a joint British-U.S. intelligence operation to infiltrate a Boston-based IRA splinter group that's out to sabotage the Irish peace process. He may have the skills of an assassin and the soul of a poet, but, as usual, Forsythe displays lousy women judgment, becoming simultaneously entangled with a British agent and the daughter of the splinter group's leader. Mc-Kinty hooks readers early with vivid action sequences and brutal bits of foreshadowing--Could Kit kill me? Could I kill her? Before the week was out, I'd know the answer to both those questions --and then delivers a shocking climax of survival and revenge that whets the appetite for what appears to be a promised third chapter in the Forsythe saga. --Frank Sennett Copyright 2005 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "McKinty's literate, expertly crafted third crime novel, the sequel to Dead I Well May Be (2003), confirms his place as one of his generation's leading talents. Five years after taking down a powerful Irish mobster, Belfast-born mercenary Michael Forsythe has a new identity and the chance at a new life, courtesy of the FBI. Unfortunately, while vacationing in Spain, Forsythe's thrown into prison after a soccer match between the Irish and the Brits turns violent. Forsythe faces extradition to Mexico, where he's a wanted man, unless he cuts a deal with a gorgeous British intelligence agent, Samantha Caudwell, to infiltrate an Irish terrorist cell called the Sons of Cuchulainn. Based outside Boston and led by a pair of fanatic ex-IRA members, the SOC vows to ignore the IRA's current cease-fire and to attack British targets in the States. Once again, Forsythe goes undercover, entering a shadowy world of subterfuge and deception. McKinty possesses a talent for pace and plot structure that belies his years. Dennis Lehane fans will definitely be pleased. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
