We gave it a B

When investigator Jack Taylor’s drug dealer gets sent to jail, he hops on the train to sobriety. Then said dealer asks Taylor to investigate his sister’s death.
In a former life… Taylor was a cop, so working for a criminal rankles his onetime co-workers.
Bottom Line Bruen’s dark Irish tale focuses more on charting Taylor’s abysmal life than solving the mystery itself. A depressing yet satisfying story.
