The Cold Cold Ground: A Detective Sean Duffy Novel (The Troubles Trilogy) - Adrian McKinty

Excellent police procedural set in Northern Ireland during the riots of 1981. 

 

Not just a book, but for me a trip down memory lane too.  I remember the events mentioned as if they were yesterday. The riots, the Maze Prison hunger strikes, the games played by the politicians, the power cuts. And across the water in England where I was, the trial of the Yorkshire Ripper, the frenzy over the upcoming marriage between Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, Shergar winning the Derby (later, the horse would be kidnapped by the IRA and never seen again), and Margaret Thatcher dominating the political landscape.

 

I'm definitely interested to see what's next for Detective Sean Duffy.
