The Psalm Killer, Paperback / softback Book

The Psalm Killer Paperback / softback

Part of the Picador Classic series

Description

With an introduction by Alan MooreIt was always the same nightmare.

Cross saw them lined up in rows, in stretches of city wasteland - those derelict spaces once described to him by a child as the blank bits where things had been before they'd got blown up. It is 1985 and a killer moves through Belfast's blighted streets.

In a time and place ruled and divided by political and religious differences, this series of crimes cuts across all those boundaries.

Detective Inspector Cross, together with Westerby, a young policewoman, enters a maze of conspiracy and paranoia, and, as the investigation draws closer to the truth, they find themselves in a nightmare world, with little hope of escape. The Psalm Killer is Chris Petit's epic thriller set during the Irish Troubles.

Masterfully written, disturbing and exciting, it is a book of immense intelligence and a real classic of its genre.
