Praise for David Hegarty“…a riveting atmosphere that has a mixture of fear, terror, and love.” – Sean McCann, Evening Press “Hegarty writes with extraordinary energy, …and the chases he describes are invigorating and physical” – Gillian Somerville Large, Irish Times .”Hegarty keeps the pace fast and maintains the tension” – Grace Ingoldsby, British Book News. “…good bouncing thriller that is far too rare these days….” -Book Review, Dublin Free Time “…a convincing story.” – Ferdia McAnna, Evening Herald. “…moves along at a cracking pace” – Noeleen Dowling, Evening Press. “…the protagonist, Murphy, is a refreshing addition to the genre of thriller writing” – Malcolm Jameson, Sunday Press David Hegarty comes from the coastal town of Wexford, in the South East corner of Ireland. While showing sharp observation for the activities of people on both sides of the law, his stories, set in rural areas, show how the apparent quiet and tranquillity of the country can be as infested with the disease of crime as any teeming metropolis. He is widely regarded as Ireland’s grittiest thriller writer. His narratives catch a grimly humorous view of events which can take over, and ultimately destroy, or salvage, the lives of ordinary people, caught in a situation they neither want nor understand.
