In this electrifying noir thriller, a young Irish ex-cop travels half a world away to investigate the murder of a beautiful girl he once loved. Alexander Lawson is a former detective for Northern Ireland’s police force who, after a disastrous stint in the drug squad, became addicted to heroin and resigned in disgrace. Now twenty-four, sickly, and on the dole, Alex learns that his high-school love, Victoria Patawasti, has been murdered in America. Victoria’s wealthy family sends Alex to Colorado to investigate the case, and he seizes the opportunity for a chance at redemption. But things don’t go as planned. Plagued by a heroin habit, forced to go on the run after the only credible witness to Victoria’s murder is accidentally killed, wanted by both the Colorado cops and the Ulster police, Alex struggles just to stay alive. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award. Audie Award Finalist. An Audible.com Bestseller.

About the Author

How does one graduate from prestigious Oxford University and end up with such a mixture of odd jobs. Such was the life of Irish born author, Adrian McKinty. He was born in Belfast, Ireland in 1968 as number four of five children. His father was a welder and boilermaker, but then became a merchant seaman. Adrian grew up reading crime novels and science fiction.

McKinty moved to New York City after receiving his Oxford degree, where he lived in Harlem. This is where the Oxford graduate took jobs as bartender, security guard, bookstore clerk, rugby coach, door to door salesman, and librarian for the Columbia University Medical School Library. After that, Adrian moved to Denver, Colorado where he was a high school English teacher. During this phase of his career, he began writing fiction with his first novel being, Dead I Well May Be. It received great recognition from peer review publishers. The next award winning novel was the sequel to his first entitled, The Dead Yard.

McKinty and his wife moved to Melbourne, Australia in 2008 with their children.
