The impossible has happened: Jack Taylor is living clean and dating a mature woman. Rumour suggests he is even attending mass... The accidental deaths of two students appear random, tragic events, except that in each case a copy of a book by John Millington Synge is found beneath the body. Jack begins to believe that "The Dramatist," a calculating killer, is out there, enticing him to play. As the case twists and turns Jack's refuge, the city of Galway, now demands he sacrifice the only love he's maintained, and while Iraq burns, he seems a step away from the abyss.

Ken Bruen has been a finalist for the Edgar, Anthony, and Barry Awards, and has won a Macavity Award and a Shamus Award for the Jack Taylor series. He lives in Galway, Ireland.
In the fourth adventure of drunken Irish policeman Jack Taylor, he's sober and no longer a cop. That doesn't prevent him from investigating the murders of two college girls, which police think are strange coincidences. Narrator Michael Deehy is expert at playing the snaky detective, but can the police really be that stupid? Deehy single-handedly creates Galway, down to the last brick. The doting landlady, the stout best friend, the pretentious professor are all real and convincing. But while the story is fascinating and perfectly delivered, it sometimes seems like a story told by a long-winded guy at an Irish pub with a pint of Guinness and a love of his own voice.
