[Read by Gerard Doyle]

A Catholic cop tracks an IRA master bomber amidst the sectarian violence of the conflict in Northern Ireland . -- It's the early 1980s in Belfast. Sean Duffy, a conflicted Catholic cop in the Protestant RUC (Royal Ulster Constabulary), is recruited by MI5 to hunt down Dermot McCann, an IRA master bomber who has made a daring escape from the notorious Maze prison. In the course of his investigations Sean discovers a woman who may hold the key to Dermot's whereabouts; she herself wants justice for her daughter who died in mysterious circumstances in a pub locked from the inside. Sean knows that if he can crack the ''locked-room mystery,'' the bigger mystery of Dermot's whereabouts might be revealed to him as a reward. Meanwhile the clock is ticking down to the Conservative Party conference in Brighton in 1984, where Mrs. Thatcher is due to give a keynote speech.

About the Author:

Adrian McKinty was born in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. He studied politics and philosophy at Oxford before moving to America in the early 1990s. Living first in Harlem, he found employment as a construction worker, barman, and bookstore clerk. In 2000 he moved to Denver to become a high school English teacher and it was there that he began writing fiction. His first full-length novel, Dead I Well May Be, was short-listed for the 2004 Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award and its sequel, The Dead Yard, was selected as one of the twelve best novels of the year by Publishers Weekly. In 2008 his debut young adult novel, The Lighthouse Land, was short-listed for the 2008 Young Hoosier Award and the 2008 Beehive Award. The final novel in the 'Dead' trilogy, The Bloomsday Dead, was long-listed for the 2009 World Book Day Award. In 2011 Falling Glass was an Audible.com Best Thriller. McKinty lives in Melbourne, Australia, with his wife and children. 

Review:

WINNER! 2014 Ned Kelly Award - Best Fiction

Praise for the Detective Sean Duffy novels:

''The best crime novel that I've read in a long time. . . . [McKinty is] a great writer. '' --NANCY PEARL, NPR, on The Cold Cold Ground

''A dark-humored shamus in the Phillip Marlowe tradition, [Sean Duffy] is . . . buoyed through the murderous chaos by his love of classical, punk, and new-wave music, the Greek philosopher Epicurus, and frothy pints of Guinness.'' --WALL STREET JOURNAL

''A razor-sharp thriller set against the backdrop of a country in chaos, told with style, courage, and dark-as-night wit. . . . An utterly brilliant novel with its own unique voice.'' --STUART NEVILLE, author of Ratlines, on The Cold Cold Ground

Praise for In the Morning I'll Be Gone:

''This is the third in the series and, for me, the best, for it contains a locked room mystery at the heart of a drama about a major terrorist escape from the Maze prison, Belfast in 1983. Written in spare, razor-sharp prose, and leading up to a denouement that creeps up on you and then explodes like a terrorist bomb, it places McKinty firmly in the front rank of modern crime writers.'' --THE DAILY MAIL, London

''Driven by McKinty's brand of lyrical, hard-boiled prose, leavened by a fatalistic strain of the blackest humour, In the Morning I'll Be Gone is a hugely satisfying historical thriller.'' --THE IRISH TIMES

''Powerful. . . . The Troubles first two novels were exceptionally smart police procedurals, and McKinty applies the same expertise here, contrasting a classic locked-room puzzle with the gritty, violent Belfast backdrop.'' --BOOKLIST STARRED REVIEW

''A locked room mystery within a manhunt killer [is] a clever and gripping set-up that helps makes Duffy's third outing easily his best so far.'' --THE SUNDAY TIMES
