内容紹介

When Jack Taylor blew town at the end of "The Guards" his alcoholism was a distant memory and sober dreams of a new life in London were shining in his eyes. In the opening pages of "The Killing of the Tinkers," Jack's back in Galway a year later with a new leather jacket on his back, a pack of smokes in his pocket, a few grams of coke in his waistband, and a pint of Guinness on his mind. So much for new beginnings.

Before long he's sunk into his old patterns, lifting his head from the bar only every few days, appraising his surroundings for mere minutes and then descending deep into the alcoholic, drug-induced fugue he prefers to the real world. But a big gypsy walks into the bar one day during a moment of Jack's clarity and changes all that with a simple request. Jack knows the look in this man's eyes, a look of hopelessness mixed with resolve topped off with a quietly simmering rage; he's seen it in the mirror. Recognizing a kindred soul, Jack agrees to help him, knowing but not admitting that getting involved is going to lead to more bad than good. But in Jack Taylor's world bad and good are part and parcel of the same lost cause, and besides, no one ever accused Jack of having good sense.

Ken Bruen wowed critics and readers alike when he introduced Jack Taylor in "The Guards"; he'll blow them away with "The Killing of the Tinkers," a novel of gritty brilliance that cements Bruen's place among the greats of modern crime fiction.

レビュー

"Ken Bruen confirms his rightful place among the finest noir stylists of his generation. This is a remarkable book from a singular talent."
- "Publisher's Weekly "(starred review)

"Bruen is a brilliant, lyrical, deeply moving writer who can make you laugh and cry in the same paragraph and whose characters are so sharply portrayed that they almost walk off the page at you. If you like Ian Rankin, Dennis Lehane, Pelecanos, and the like, Bruen is definitely a writer to reckon with."
-"Denver Post"

"Bruen is an original, grimly hilarious and gloriously Irish. I await the further adventures of the incorrigible Jack Taylor."
-Patrick Anderson, "Washington Post"

"The next major new Irish voice we hear might well belong to Ken Bruen."
-"Chicago Tribune"

5つ星のうち 2.0 The most meh sequel you'll ever read 2016/9/2
投稿者 C. Withrow - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I haven't read much crime/mystery, but I really enjoyed the first novel, and I imagine others from other genres have as well. It seems to have pleased those who just want cheap thrills, and he is good at that, but this one was all style no substance. I was surprised by the lack of much leg work he did in the first book, but thought maybe the show had skewed me. In this one however, he does nothing but confront on guy. It's literally just about him sucking at everything, his friends doing the detective work, his friends doing the dirty work. This isn't harry potter where there's at least something he brings to the table at the end. He brings nothing ever to the table. If he gets better in the series, Ill never find out. Total hack job, down to the duplicated quote.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Guiness, Bushmills and Jack Taylor 2016/11/2

This is the second of Mr. Bruen's series featuring Jack Taylor. Taylor, ex-Garda officer and most-of-the drinker is at the beginning of his long fall into dissolution and despair. Nonetheless, he, and the novels are compelling reading companions. Once the reader accepts the fact that Jack will never get fully sober, happy and hopeful, the reader can just hold on to the careening roller-coaster cart of Taylor's life and enjoy the ride. It is obvious that underneath Jack Taylor's cynicism is a deep well of hurt.
The plot synopsis is available else where; what I will add is my complete recommendation to a prospective reader to enjoy Bruen's antihero' sad ventures in crime fighting.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A Pint and a Black Bush 2008/3/2
投稿者 Gary Griffiths - (Amazon.com)

There is magic in Ken Bruen that is not easily placed. It's certainly not the plot - there is little mystery and less forensics in Bruen's Irish crime staccato. And one can hardly be drawn to the characters, unless in the mildly perverse sense of attraction to tragic heroes plotting self destruction. Nor is Bruen good for your spirits, as he drags the reader through vast fields of human wreckage that begin with mere despair and reach utter wretchedness by the climax. Yet just as Bruen's drug and alcohol addled Jack Taylor is drawn to his booze and coke, I find myself addicted to this sparse and brutal poetry disguised as fiction, not merely unique but untouchable.

"The Killing of the Tinkers" is the second Jack Taylor novel. A classically simple Bruen story line: someone is killing "tinkers" (gypsies), the cops could care less, ex-Guard Taylor is offered a lucrative fee by one of the clan to find out who. But as with most of Bruen's writing, this central plot - finding the killer - is mostly forgotten as the insolent Taylor drifts in and out of all varieties of drug induced stupors and subsequent vomit and hangovers - not a lot of social redeeming value here, and far from the cardboard cutout PIs more often found in crime fiction. Taylor stays sober enough to wreck his short marriage and start a torrid new affair. While some of the tangents and side stories may seem like diversion in a patently sparse Bruen novel, this is indeed key to the Bruen's allure of spinning the complex psychological and cultural backdrop to the story. As always, the well-read author peppers his prose with a wide range of literary quotes and references - how can you argue with a guy comfortable with Dylan Thomas and Bob Dylan - adding a dimension that complements the story while contradicting Taylor's surface brutishness. The birth of Taylor's friends child builds from the poignant in "Tinkers" to the heart wrenching in subsequent Taylor novels ("The Dramatist", "Priest"). From confrontation to beatings to decapitated swans and irate mothers, Taylor and Bruen careen to a finish that if not Hitchcockian is certainly surprising, highlighting some clever foreshadowing not typically associated with this author.

In short, modern noir as bleak as it can get, an addiction too intelligent to be called guilty pleasure. If you're not a Ken Bruen fan yet, pick up "The Guards" first and start your own habit.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Time for Chris Whitley, Ken 2012/8/9
投稿者 Mary Sojourner - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I'm only 1/3 through The Killing of the Tinkers - had to force myself to put it aside last night around 2 because I had to work this morning. I love Jack Taylor's voice - been there and done most of that. He is not a fan, as we used to say in Southside Chicago, he's a player. And, this may be one of the funniest paragraphs every written in crime fiction: "The last time I saw the Spice Girls, I was coked to the far side of the moon. Posh looked uncannily like the young Cliff Richard. I still don't know which of them that's the worst news for; Beckham definitely."
I hope you read customer reviews, Ken. If you do, check out the music of Chris Whitley, especially the later albums. Dust Radio is the music you write to.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Great story. Lousy Kindle Conversion 2013/8/19
投稿者 SteveRRRR - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Jack Taylor is an amazing anti hero. Started watching the British TV series on Netflix, and they are very good, but don't capture how truly broken this man is. I will try another of the novels, but this one was so badly converted that you had to frequently stop and say "huh?" I would have knocked off a star for that, but wouldn't be fair to the author or to the story. I may have to go back to actual books (gasp) if I want to read the rest of the series, which would make Jack Taylor happy, to be sure.
