Summary

Former Irish cop Jack Taylor seems to have finally found a modicum of peace as he recovers from his most recent ordeal—that is, until a demented vigilante killer goes on a rampage, trying with each new murder to draw Jack into participating in a deadly game.

Jack Taylor thinks he has a chance at last to rest and heal from the myriad mental and physical traumas that beset him. However, after a skateboarder long suspected of dealing drugs to children is shot dead in mid-air during a public performance, Jack receives a crytic message with a picture of the skateboarder, a clipping about a rapist gone free through procedural error, and a chilling invitation: “Your turn.” The note is signed simply “C 33.”

From the author considered “among the most original and innovative noir voices of the last two decades” (Los Angeles Times Book Review) comes a mystery as labyrinthine as any Jack has yet encountered—and perhaps even more deadly. Purgatory is Ken Bruen at his best: lyrical, brutal, and ceaselessly suspenseful.
