Bob and Ray meet Jim Thompson in Gerard Brennan's The Point
"`The IRA knows a lot about you, wee girl,' Paul said. `You better stop what you're doing.'At the risk of wallowing in identity politics, Brennan is a few years younger than, say, his compatriot crime writers Adrian McKinty and Stuart Neville.
