to pretend like this book never actually happened For all intents and purposes, this book probably should have sucked pretty hard A fairly straight faced PI series suddenly introduces 8 books in a supernatural element And by supernatural element I mean our barely functioning PI Jack Taylor goes head to head in the streets of Galway with the Infernal One himself No, the title is anything but metaphorical.Actually, this book turned out to be a pleasant puff of fresh Gaelic air after the last three ho hum entries in the never ending struggle For all intents and purposes, this book probably

head to head in the streets of Galway with the Infernal One himself No, the title is anything but metaphorical.Actually, this book turned out to be a pleasant puff of fresh Gaelic air after the last three ho hum entries in the never ending struggle between Jack Taylor and his own damned nature The Devil is a pretty concise and focused novel compared to the normal Bruen fair which tend to hinge on the barest semblances of plot and often re write backstory to make way for any idea that pops into the author s Irish brain, usually at the cost of any continuity or sense of character progression for the reader.Taylor finds himself in some deep shit this time around when he happens to slouch his way into the Lord of Lies line of sight The Prince of Darkness happens to be working on a pet project in Galway, killing off various innocents from various walks of life, all for the sake of that esteemed goal of making the world a bitof a worse place to live My main gripe with this book, and with series as a whole, is that Bruen plays the damned card pretty heavily when it comes to the life and times of Jack Taylor I can think of a few series where the leads are booze slugging, drug gobbling, self loathing messes, but in those books the world does not conform to their particular character s self destructive tendencies However, the Jack Taylor series revels in its hero s inadequacies It s not so much that Jack Taylor s actions make him the good man that he is supposed to be, it sthat he is a good man because Bruen said so, and then we watch him do nothing to prove otherwise other than make half hearted attempts at investigating mysteries, or occasionally beating up or shooting a bad guy.There is a likeable quality about Jack he does seem to have a heart beneath all his fucked up exteriors, and that s what has kept me reading That and the fact that each of these books can be read in under three hours Is Bruen one of the best of our modern noirists I don t think so But he still has a sense of style and a flair for the occasional grace of the throw away poetic phrase And with only two books left to go in the series, I ll probably stick around to see what happens next 1 I read a 140 pages of this book on my ride into work It wasn t a ride that had any significant delays.2 I still don t know how I feel about the actual Devil being a part of the book I get how it pulls together some of the earlier novels, and now that I m writing this I see how this book is working like the David Lynch moment Bruen has a character tell Taylor about during this book in regards to supernatural fiction but 3 I m not sure I approve of my hard boiled depressing crime novels 1 I read a 140 pages of this book on my ride into work It wasn t a ride that had any significant delays.2 I

with the supernatural But maybe I m just being an asshole who is assuming the devil is all nonsense and maybe this book isn t quite possibly Bruen and Taylor jumping the shark The Devil the 8th book in the Jack Taylor series by Ken BruenThis 8th title was my least favourite in the series so far, although still a good readEn route to America Jack is stopped at the departure gate, so stops for a pint in the airport bar A well dressed man sits beside him, and starts up a conversation and seems to know a lot about JackJack has just sold his flat, but will be staying, he has been called in to investigate a student murder
