Rain Dogs, a stunning installment in the Sean Duffy thriller series, following the Edgar Award-nominated Gun Street Girl, is "another standout in a superior series" (Booklist). It's just the same things over and again for Sean Duffy: riot duty, heartbreak, cases he can solve but never get to court. But what detective gets two locked-room mysteries in one career? When journalist Lily Bigelow is found dead in the courtyard of Carrickfergus Castle, it looks like a suicide. Yet there are a few things that bother Duffy just enough to keep the case file open, which is how he finds out that Bigelow was working on a devastating investigation of corruption and abuse at the highest levels of power in the UK and beyond. And so Duffy has two impossible problems on his desk: Who killed Lily Bigelow? And what were they trying to hide?

Professional reviews

"McKinty's story opens with a visit to Belfast by "sporting royalty" Muhammad Ali--a challenge narrator Gerard Doyle meets with a gravelly, rhythmic delivery. Even better are Doyle's varied Irish accents, which help differentiate the various Northern Irish policemen who work with Detective Sean Duffy to solve an international case of murder in an Irish village. The death of a young English reporter involves politicians and wealthy Finnish investors. Duffy's journey to Finland to investigate poses an interesting vocal challenge that Doyle handles admirably. His delivery further ratchets up the tension when the threat of IRA bombings and the death of a high-ranking police official add to the mayhem. D.P.D. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
