Bitterness is boiling up in Irish PI Jack Taylor, who’s convinced he’s brought tragedy to all those he loves. But when his old friend Ridge, a Galway police officer, asks for help in solving a brutal crime — a crucifixtion — he rouses himself from an alcoholic stupor to lend a hand.

An Irish Dirty Harry.
