Vincent Naylor has just been released from prison and has already begun to plot his next heist--the robbery of an armored car. Detective Sergeant Bob Tidey has been caught perjuring himself to protect fellow officers. He's also found the link between an unsolved murder case and the recent execution of a corrupt banker in serious financial difficulty. An old acquaintance will change the course of the investigation. A retired nun living on regrets and bad memories notices something deeply suspicious and makes a phone call that sets in motion a series of fateful events.

In The Rage , Gene Kerrigan weaves together astute observations regarding a financial crisis, church abuse, and gangland crime. The writing is, as always with a Kerrigan novel, superb, with an engaging story that has pitch perfect dialogue and characters that come fully alive.

The prize-winning crime fiction is set in contemporary Ireland where nothing is neatly resolved and there are no easy choices. Like life itself.

The book's description here is completely wrong. It currently states: "A recently-released convict, a discouraged policeman, and a retired nun become involved in planning a high-stakes robbery." What it should say is, "A recently-released convict, a discouraged policeman, and a retired nun become involved in the events surrounding a high-stakes robbery."

This is an excellent police procedural set in Ireland. With great characters and an engrossing plot, it is not run of the mill or ordinary in any way. I strongly recommend it.
