The Cold Cold Ground comes to America
Adrian McKinty is among those writers whose books have taught me so much and entertained me so well. Now, thanks to the excellent folks at Seventh Street Books, American readers can easily get their hands on his latest novel.
The Cold Cold Ground is hard-hitting and funny and very human, and it paints a plausible picture of what it must really have been like for ordinary folks to live through Northern Ireland's Troubles, circa the early 1980s.
The book is very possibly the best crime novel published in English in 2012, no shock from an author long a favorite here at DBB, and it lands in America just in time for holiday gift-giving. (And yep, the publishing company is named for the street where Edgar Allan Poe lived in Philadelphia. How cool is that?)
