She’s hot, well read, and absolutely mad—and she won’t let him go Bank robber Cooper picks her up at the supermarket, where he spies her shoplifting and warns her that the store detective is watching her. She puts the stolen food back, and he buys her lunch. It’s the worst mistake he’s ever made. What this pretty young American girl is doing in South London is a mystery to him. Her name is Cassie, and she acts sane until they get home. She’s normal as he takes her clothes off, normal for everything that follows, normal until she tells him that now that he’s touched her, he can never have another woman. He thinks it’s a joke until he wakes up and finds her note, which explains that she drugged him and left with his pistol and some of the money he’s made holding up banks. Only death will keep her away, so death it must be.

Jack Taylor is walking the delicate edge of a sobriety he doesn't trust when his phone rings. He's in debt to a Galway tough named Bill Cassell, what the locals call a "hard man." Bill did Jack a big favor a while back; the trouble is, he never lets a favor go unreturned. Jack is amazed when Cassell simply asks him to track down a woman, now either dead or very old, who long ago helped his mother escape from the notorious Magdalen laundry, where young wayward girls were imprisoned and abused. Jack doesn't like the odds of finding the woman, but counts himself lucky that the task is at least on the right side of the law. Until he spends a few days spinning his wheels and is dragged in front of Cassell for a quick reminder of his priorities. Bill's goons do a little spinning of their own, playing a game of Russian roulette a little too close to the back of Jack's head. It's only blind luck and the mercy of a god he no longer trusts that land Jack back on the street rather than face down in a cellar with a bullet in his skull. He's got one chance to stay alive: find this woman. Unfortunately, he can't escape his own curiosity, and an unnerving hunch quickly turns into a solid fact: just who Jack's looking for, and why, aren't nearly what they seem. The Magdalen Martyrs, the third Galway-set novel by Edgar, Barry, and Macavity finalist and Shamus Award-winner Ken Bruen, is a gripping, dazzling story that takes the Jack Taylor series to explosive new heights of suspense.

Somewhere in the teeming heart of London is a man on a lethal mission. His cause: a long-overdue lesson on the importance of manners. When a man gives a public tongue-lashing to a misbehaving child, or a parking lot attendant is rude to a series of customers, the "Manners Killer" makes sure that the next thing either sees is the beginning of his own grisly end. When he starts mailing letters to the Southeast London police squad, he'll soon find out just how bad a man's manners can get. The Southeast is dominated by the perpetual sneer of one Inspector Brant, and while he might or might not agree with the killer's cause and can even forgive his tactics to some degree, Brant is just ornery enough to employ his trademark brand of amoral, borderline-criminal policing to the hunt for the Manners Killer. For if there's one thing that drives the incomparable inspector, it's the unshakeable conviction that if anyone is going to be getting away with murder on his patch, it'll be Brant himself, thank you very much. Ken Bruen's Calibre is original and astonishing hard-boiled noir.

A poorly planned kidnapping turns bloody Lisa is too good-looking not to be trouble. Nick falls for her as soon as he meets the lithe young black woman, and though their drug-fueled relationship quickly turns toxic, he can’t stop wanting her. In a flash, she’s burnt through his savings and cost him his job, so she proposes a kidnapping scheme to reinvigorate their bank accounts. Nick is too smart to think it’s a good idea, but too stupid to say no. The target is Ronald Baldwin, a local businessman of moderate wealth and infinite pretension, whose obsession with the poet Rilke borders on madness. For backup, Nick invites along Dex, his psychopathic across-the-street neighbor. With three amateur criminals as unhinged as those in this group, there’s no doubt that blood will be shed. The only questions are, who will fire the first shot, and who will fire the last?

Two guards; one nun; one judge. When a letter containing a list of victims arrives in the post, PI Jack Taylor is sickened, but tells himself the list has nothing to do with him. He has enough to do just staying sane. His close friend Ridge is recovering from surgery, and alcohol's siren song is calling to him ever more insistently. A guard and then a judge die in mysterious circumstances. But it is not until a child is added to the list that Taylor determines to find the identity of the killer, and stop them at any cost. What he doesn't know is that his relationship with the killer is far closer than he thinks. And that it's about to become deeply personal. Spiked with dark humour, seasoned with acute insights about the perils of urbanisation, and fuelled by rage at man's inhumanity to man, this is crime-writing at its darkest and most original.

Avec son physique – grand, baraqué, l’air pas commode –, Nick a une carrière de videur toute tracée. D’autant qu’il met un point d’honneur à être poli et distingué, chose qui n’a pas de prix dans le Sud-Est de Londres. Mais Lisa, une Noire explosive, et Dex, un voisin psychopathe, signent l’arrêt de mort du gentleman qu’il s’efforce de devenir. Lisa, Nick l’a dans la peau, alors il accepte, pour elle, de kidnapper un patron de boîte de nuit, un certain Baldwin. Ce détenu énigmatique et cultivé va le faire douter de la loyauté de ses partenaires. En quoi il n’a pas totalement tort... Sur fond de rock et de country, un roman ciselé sur la noirceur de l’âme humaine. Cassie aime la poésie à la folie – Louis MacNeice, en particulier, auquel elle s’identifie pour avoir connu la même tragédie que lui, au même âge : la perte de sa mère. Elle aime aussi jouer avec les flingues, le fric et avec Cooper, un braqueur de banque bien à l’abri, derrière sa couverture de « récupérateur » de bagnoles volées. Tout se passe plutôt bien, jusqu’au jour où elle se tire avec l’argent, mais sans son amant qu’elle abandonne avec le corps de la caissière qu’il vient d’abattre... Dans la plus pure tradition du roman noir londonien, un roman coup de poing, efficace et dérangeant. Né en 1951 à Galway, Ken Bruen est un des auteurs clefs du roman noir anglo-saxon. Cet admirateur des Américains Jean Thompson, Chester Himes et James Crumley a déjà publié, chez Fayard, En effeuillant Baudelaire, Hackman Blues et London Boulevard.
