When a letter containing a list of victims arrives in the post, P.I. Jack Taylor tells himself that it’s got nothing to do with him. He has enough to do just staying sane. His close friend Ridge is recovering from surgery, and alcohol’s siren song is calling to him ever more insistently.

A guard and then a judge die in mysterious circumstances. But it is not until a child is added to the list that Taylor determines to find the identity of the killer, and stop them at any cost. What he doesn’t know is that his relationship with the killer is far closer than he thinks. And it’s about to become deeply personal.

Spiked with dark humor, and fueled with rage at man’s inhumanity to man, Ken Bruen's Sanctuary is crime writing at its darkest and most original.

Praise for Sanctuary

"A remarkable book that is at once as American as James M. Cain and as Irish as a shot of Jameson. Once again, Ken Bruen has borrowed the noir style, changed it around and given it back to us as something fresh and new." --The News-Press (Fort Meyers, FL)

Praise for Cross:

“His insights into pain, loss, and Irishness are unforgettable.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“An amazing portrait of a peculiarly Irish form of despair, and nary a page passes without a memorably mordant laugh, a wonderful turn of phrase, or an aphorism that any crime fan will want to share with another devotee.” —Booklist (starred review)

“This is dark-side stuff from a master.” —Kirkus Reviews

Cross sucks you into the dark, gritty streets of Galway.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Bruen’s latest is classic Irish noir—bitter, dark and packing a kick, a literary pint of Guinness Extra Stout with a shot of Jameson on the side.” —Chicago Tribune

“[A] bleak and brilliant series.” —The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Bruen’s previous novel, Priest, is a finalist for this year’s Edgar Award, and it’s a terrific story of vengeance. Cross, however, may be even better, another dark journey into a tarnished Emerald Isle and a damaged soul on the verge of surrendering hope forever.” —The Miami Herald
