The Cold Cold Ground

The Cold Cold Ground - Adrian McKinty Adrian McKinty is a new to me author. When The Cold, Cold Ground became available for download at my library, it looked really interesting. I almost didn't finish listening to it as the accent took some time to get used to. I was having a hard time understanding the narrator at first. But after a while, I got used to the rhythm of the accent and I was hooked.

I don't remember much about the fighting that occurred in Northern Ireland in the early 80s. This book takes place during the hunger strikes. After reading this book, I looked up the conflict to help me to understand some of the things in the book. I don't think it is necessary to do this for a reader to enjoy the story, I just did it because I am a curious person.

Overall, I enjoyed the story. Sean Duffy is a great character. He's not the nicest guy but he is a good solid cop who will stop at nothing to find the killer. The mystery was very intriguing and there are a few twists that I didn't see coming. While there seemed to be several paths that the police would take to solve the murders, they all come together to make sense in the end. I loved the ending, talk about justice! Mr. McKinty has created a good start to a great new series and I look forward to reading his next adventure.
