    I was thrown a little by the supernatural ambiguity of DEVIL, but there s none of that here, and HEADSTONE is a return to the sleek, balls to the wall staccato noir Bruen does so well This is one of my favorites in the series.

    Probably the best book in the Jack Taylor series so far As in the other entries the plot takes a back seat, as character development of Taylor, and the gritty writing style are the real highlights.
