Ken Bruen is an amazing writer. This one I don't know was going on. There is no mystery, really, which is fine. Then the Devil shows up and gets angry about a bunch of Jack Taylor's old cases. Then the devil starts killing anyone Jack talks to. Then Jack kills the devil. Then the devil shows up somewhere else quoting Rolling Stones lyrics. Add in some heavy drinking, Xanax, and a return to smoking, diatribes about non-nationals and repeat. I truly love Ken bruen's writing, and will read anything he puts out. And being with Jack Taylor for a couple of days again was great. But I honestly have no idea what Bruen was trying to do here. Battle the greatest evil? Reference all his past books? If you've read the rest of the Taylor series, you'll need to read this one too. And then sit back and wait for the next installment and hope it's as good as Cross or Sanctuary.
