The Bloomsday Dead, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Part 3 of The Dead Trilogy Michael Forsythe might be, as one of his assailants puts it, 'un-f*cking-killable', but that doesn't seem to deter people from trying.

He's living in Lima, reasonably well-hidden by the FBI's Witness Protection Program, but Bridget Callaghan, whose fiance he murdered twelve years ago, has an enduring wish to see him dead.

So when her two assassins pass him the phone to speak to her before they kill him, Michael thinks she just wants to relish the moment.

In fact, out of desperation, she is giving him a chance to redeem himself.

All he has to do is return to Ireland and find her missing daughter.

Before midnight. Tenacious and brutal, with the hunted man's instinct for trouble, Forsythe leaves a trail of mayhem as he tries to end the bloody feud once and for all.

The Bloomsday Dead pulsates with break-neck action and wry literary references; McKinty's distinctly Irish voice packs a ferocious punch.

Review by

This is the third book in the "Dead" trilogy by Adrian McKinty, a Northern Irish author who now lives in Australia.<br/>Michael Forsyth, a man wanted by just about everyone, trying to live a quiet life under the witness protection program in Peru, gets tracked down by one of the people who wants him dead. <br/>Michael is asked to help an old flame whose daughter has disappeared in Belfast.<br/>As is usual, the action starts from the beginning and doesn't let up, as Michael tries to track down the young girl by following up leads that he can find, due to his background in this town. Unfortunately, he no longer has all the connections that he used to have and he starts to annoy quite a few people.<br/>Excellent, fast-paced novel with a character you really feel for, despite his propensity for violence.<br/>4.5 stars<br/>
