The Devil, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


America - the land of opportunity, a place where economic prosperity beckons: but not for PI Jack Taylor, who's just been refused entry.

Jack resumes his old life in Galway. But when he's called to investigate the frenzied murder of a student, he remembers an encounter with an over-friendly stranger in the airport bar.

A stranger who seemed to know rather more than he should about Jack.

After several more murders and too many encounters to be coincidental, Jack believes he may have met his nemesis.

But why has he been chosen? And could he really be dealing with the Devil himself?

Review by

Refused entry to the US, Jack is back in Galway and is asked to look into the disappearance of a student. Initial investigations point to an occultist and when the student turns up dead with an inverted cross gouged into his skin this seems to confirm that belief. So who is this mysterious Mr. K and why does everyone who has a friendly conversation with Jack seem to be ending up dead all of a sudden? Is it all coincidence or has Jack finally met the worst adversary there is?
