In the Morning I’ll Be Gone (Sean Duffy 3)

Sean Duffy 3

The third Sean Duffy thriller: a spectacular escape and an intense man-hunt that could change the future of a nation – and lay one man’s past to rest.

Sean Duffy’s got nothing. And when you’ve got nothing left to lose, you have everything to gain, but only if you want it. So when MI5 come knocking, Sean knows exactly what they want, but he hasn’t got the first idea how to get it.Of course he’s heard about the spectacular escape of IRA man Dermot McCann from Her Majesty’s Maze prison. And he knew, with chilly certainty, that their paths would cross. But finding Dermot leads Sean to an old locked room mystery, and into the kind of danger where you can lose as easily as winning. And there’s no coming back from this kind of losing.From old betrayals and ancient history to 1984’s most infamous crime, Sean tries not to fall too far behind in the race to annihilation. Can he outrun the most skilled terrorist the IRA ever created? And will the past catch him first?


Duffy is one of the most interesting, convincing and sympathetic police officers in recent crime fiction… McKinty gets better and better

Marcel Berlins, Times

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, and the place comes alive – a uniquely beautiful and nasty part of the world

Daniel Woodrell

It’s easy to see Duffy becoming as popular as Ian Rankin’s Rebus

Irish Times

Tightly written thriller, once again McKinty delivers the goods. One of the finest crime writers in the world today.

It’s a riveting read with a captivating detective and a plot which is gripping from start to finish. The writing is realistic and peppered with dark humour. It’s clever, interesting, powerful and compelling. I would recommend this to any crime fan as it’s a very strong, well-written novel which will make people want to read more by McKinty. If you’re looking for a tough, well plotted piece of crime fiction that you can’t put down, then pick this up.
