Read full description of the books:
This is the fourth book in the Jack Taylor series of novels, and the fifth one that I've read. And the seventh book of Ken Bruen's I've gotten through in the past couple of months.
There is something predictable about Bruen. There are set ups and scenes he uses over and over again, and there are almost stock characters, or at least character types he keeps bringing out. But, even with a certain level of predictability he still packs a huge punch. Even, though as a reader I feel a little ashamed afterwards at falling for the bait over and over again. I don't think this is too much of a spoiler, but over and over and over again he tricks me into letting down my guard and thinking that at least something is turning out alright before delivering some devastating blow. I think what makes it so effective, even if unrelenting it how much it is used is that there are no limits on where or who the awfulness is going to occur. I've been reading Bruen and Dennis Lehane, sort of switching off between them lately, and both authors seem to take a sadistic delight in how much they can punish their characters. Maybe I should find some nice upbeat life affirming shit to read soon.
Soon, I'll be on to the next one in this series to see how the ending of this one has fucked up Taylor's life even more than it is already screwed up.
