A torso in a suitcase looks like an impossiblecase, but Sean Duffy isn't easily deterred, especially when his flounderinglove life leaves him in need of a distraction. So with Detective Constables McCrabbanand McBride, he goes to work identifying the victim. The torso turns out to beall that's left of an American tourist who once served in the US military. Whatwas he doing in Northern Ireland in the midst of the 1982 Troubles? The trailleads to the doorstep of a beautiful, flame-haired, twentysomething widow,whose husband died at the hands of an IRA assassination team just a few monthsbefore. Suddenly Duffy is caught between his romantic instincts, grossprofessional misconduct, and powerful men he should know better than to messwith. These include British intelligence, the FBI, and local paramilitary deathsquads-enough to keep even the savviest detective busy. Duffy's growing senseof self-doubt isn't helping.

Editorial Reviews

• Winner! Barry Award for Best Paperback Original, 2014• #3 on Booklist’s The Year’s Best Crime Novels /Top Ten Crime Fiction • Shortlisted for 2013 Ned Kelly Awards, Best Crime Novel • Longlisted for the Theakston Best British Crime Novel Award“In this pitch-perfect sequel to The Cold Cold Ground...Duffy is nearly overwhelmed by politics. This is crime fiction at its best: a police procedural with dialogue that’s crisp and occasionally lighthearted; blistering action that’s often lethal; McKinty’s mordant Belfastian wit; and a protagonist readers won’t want to leave behind when the trilogy ends.”—BOOKLIST, STARRED REVIEW“I Hear the Sirens in the Street blew my bloody doors off!” —IAN RANKIN, author of the Inspector Rebus novels “Adrian McKinty has the chops to do all manner of things with words, and in I Hear the Sirens in the Street he unleashes a strain of rough and visual, sly and lyric narrative prose in service of one hell of a story. Sean Duffy is a great creation, a figure of many parts, and the place comes alive.” —DANIEL WOODRELL, author of The Outlaw Album: Stories
