The last installment of Adrian McKinty’s Dead Trilogy, The Bloomsday Dead brings the series to a satisfying close.
If you enjoyed the first two pieces of the trilogy, Dead I Well May Be and The Dead Yard, you are in for a treat with The Bloomsday Dead. Like the preceding novels it’s fast-paced, gritty, and with an odd sort of Irish lyricism to counter the frequent and graphic violence.
The protagonist, Michael Forsythe, is still a sociopathic thug, but McKinty nevertheless manages to make you care about him.
The entire Dead Trilogy is a given if you like your crime fiction with heaping helpings of noir.
Includes Hollywood Dead, Tales from the Loop, Things from the Flood, The Court of Broken Knives, and Port of Shadows.
Nic has a retinal tear and has his vision is saved by a laser.
Includes The Storm Before the Storm, White Trash, Calypso, Tell the Machine Goodnight, Prince of Fools, and Provenance.
The Internet tells Nic to install Ubiquiti gear in his house, so he does, and now he has thoughts.
What I wish I’d known when I started podcasting.
Nic starts a new podcast about—gasp!—American sports.
Mostly excellent non-fiction in this installment. Includes Fantasyland, The Miracle of Dunkirk, Das Reich, The Undoing Project, Waiting for the Punch, Vacationland and Points of Impact.
