Author(s): Adrian McKinty
Killian makes a living enforcing other people's laws, collecting debts, and finding people who do not wish to be found. Now Killian is offered the best paid job of his life: Richard Coulter, an Irishman with political connections, and the owner of a budget airline, is willing to pay half a million to track down his ex-wife and children.
Witty and violent, fast-paced and evocative, Falling Glass is McKinty at his best - and back on his home turf.
'Another winner, with pathos, insight, sardonic humour and lyrical descriptions that counterpoint the red-hot sequences to superb effect' (Guardian) 'McKinty is a streetwise, energetic gunslinger of a writer, firing off volleys of sassy dialogue and explosive action that always delivers what it promises... Skilfully constructed and full throttle forwards' (Irish Times)
