Avenger. Ken Bruen reprises protagonist Jack Taylor for a pleasurable crime novel titled, Green Hell. If your view of Ireland is that it is a little bit of heaven, expand your horizons with this novel that presents Galway as a living hell. Taylor has found a new low point, with a dead best friend and a search for refuge in drugs and drink. He stirs out of lethargy by taking on a cause: vengeance against a professor whose violence upsets the ex-Garda in Jack. The plot moves quickly, the dialogue is lively, and the chaos is an outright delight.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
