Ever since I read the Irish thrillers by Stuart Neville I have been looking for more, and fortunately I found Adrian McKinty, a writer from Northern Ireland, who is satisfying my craving. My first foray into McKinty’s books is with HIDDEN RIVER a complex story of a good man, Alex Lawson, living a life on the edge. Once a rising star in the Northern Ireland police force unusual circumstances lead him down a road that would take him away from his promising career and into a dark existence of heroin addiction. When an ex-girlfriend is murdered in Denver, Colorado he escapes his Irish tormentors and heads to the Rocky Mountains to uncover the truth of Victoria's murder and hopefully find her killer. This book has many layers and each layer is dealt with extensively so that at times it seems like the story has slowed down, but in reality the author is giving you the opportunity to live in Alex's shoes, live his existence and become friends with the people he befriends. I highly recommend this for thriller lovers, especially those looking for a good Irish thriller. I am looking forward to reading DEAD I WELL MAY BE, the first in a noir trilogy.
