An Intense Series Continues with I Hear the Sirens in the Street by Adrian McKinty

 

 

by Amy Lignor 

Book II of The Troubles Trilogy, this is a tension-filled narrative that draws readers into the life of Police Detective Inspector, Sean TomIHearTheSirensInTheStreetDuffy. It is the early 1980’s and the civil war in Belfast, Northern Ireland is raging – with more violence and pain occurring each and every day.

 

The author begins with a ‘bang’ not a ‘whimper,’ as Sean discovers the remains of a man’s torso stuffed into a suitcase buried in a dumpster. The only evidence of who the man might have been comes in the form of a partial tattoo. The authorities don’t have much to go on, suffice to say, so Duffy and his cohorts hit the bricks to do some good old-fashioned police work.

 

Finally able to identify the corpse, the happiness is short-lived. The body is an American tourist who has no links that could have caused him this much pain. The case slows to a crawl, as Sean attempts to put two an two together.

 

Never giving up, he comes up with scenarios about what the sinister plot could be: A random act of violence in the already violent city? Or perhaps it’s a conspiracy involving British Intelligence, American FBI and some local paramilitary death squads that Sean most definitely doesn’t want to get involved with?

 

A red-headed beauty whose husband died in an IRA assassination may just hold the answers. But as Sean gets deeper into the case, passion and professional misconduct may just end up to be the combo that does him in for good.

 

Full of sorrow for the country and people of Northern Ireland, this plot will keep the reader busy. Being a stand-alone book, even though it’s part of the series, knowing Book I (The Cold, Cold Ground) ahead of time is not a necessity. However, after this, you’ll be scrambling to see how it all began.

 

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy
