The Irish Times says "Be warned... Rain Dogs is Gateway McKinty: you won't stop here." Well, ONE LUCKY WINNER WON'T HAVE TO! We're giving away all FIVE Detective Sean Duffy books! Read on to learn more.

"Fast-paced and riveting   throughout the entire novel,   Rain Dogs   has elegant dialogue and descriptions that immediately pull readers into the many beautifully described locations ."
   - Killer Nashville Book of the Day
"A first-rate crime thriller... A very engaging tale that sets an early high standard for this year's crime fiction. Highly recommended."
   - Sydney Morning Herald

When journalist Lily Bigelow is found dead in the courtyard of Carrickfergus castle, it looks like a suicide. Yet there are just a few things that bother Duffy enough to keep the case file open. Which is how he finds out that she was working on a devastating investigation of corruption and abuse at the highest levels of power in the UK and beyond.

And so Duffy has two impossible problems on his desk: Who killed Lily Bigelow? And what were they trying to hide?
