read The Rage

Ls with criminals and about to commit perjury is investigating the murder of a crooked banker A call from an old acuaintance will change his course of investigation Maura Co. Gene Kerrigan is one of Ireland s leading columnists and a keen observer and critic of Irish social and political life In The Rage he weaves together a whole series of astute observations regarding the financial crisis the property bust the Ryan Report and Church abuses and gangland crime The writing is superb with prose that is engaging and well paced credible dialogue and a range of nicely penned characters that feel like real people Kerrigan does a fine job at tugging and twisting the various strands together to produce a compelling narrative Whilst there are resolutions with respect to both the Sweetman and Naylor cases I like that Kerrigan has left them somewhat ambiguous and unsettling It fits with the whole unsettling feel of the book For anyone who lives in Ireland what is disconcerting is that reading the novel feels like seeing society reflected back as it is rather than simply reading a story Excellent stuff

I m going to Ireland in a few weeks so like any sensible fan of mysteries and thrillers I ve been reading contemporary Irish writers Gene Kerrigan s latest book The Rage came to my attention via an interview with the author on NPR s Fresh Air Other reviews have summarized the plot and central characters better than I could If it s a synopsis you re looking for check out a couple of the long reviews on I ll keep my comments brief and focus on why I think Kerrigan s book is worth buying and reading Yes the characters are interesting and the plot moves along crisply But what distinguishes Kerrigan s book from the above average mystery is neither the characters nor the plot It is his insight into contemporary Irish culture It is the way he educates the reader about the the impact of boom and bust cycles the machine is the conglomerate of bankers and politicians on the lives of Irish people The choices available to both cops and criminals is impacted by these faceless merchants of greed and power Fiction books I find often are the best medium for educating the willing learner Kerrigan manages to entertain and educate He makes me want to walk the streets of Dublin but he also makes me wary of the dark that lurks just around the corner Unless your idea of a good airplane read in Joyce s Ulysses Kerrigan is a journey worth making
