Reviews of The Killing of the Tinkers

Overall customer rating: 5.000

Worthy reading

by on Aug 20, 2009

Bruen gives us another winner with "Killing." This time, he offers a glimpse into the culture of Tinkers, their struggle with being outcasts in Irish society and the efforts of Bruen's flawed protagonaist Jack Taylor to find justice for a particularly lurid murder. A lovely tangle of despair, heroic effort and resolution that brings some small satisfaction to a dark corner of the soul, if not the law, is a hallmark of Ken Bruen's tales. Read them all.
