The fourth in the Devlin series

When Garda Inspector Benedict Devlin is summoned to a burning barn, he finds inside the charred remains of a man who is quickly identified as a local drug dealer, Martin Kielty. It soon becomes clear that Kieltys death was no accident, and suspicion falls on a local vigilante group. Former paramilitaries, the men call themselves The Rising.

Meanwhile, a former colleagues teenage son has gone missing during a seaside camping trip. Devlin is relieved when the boys mother, Caroline Williams, receives a text message from her sons phone, and so when a body is reported, washed up on a nearby beach, the inspector is baffled.

When another drug dealer is killed, Devlin realises that the spate of deaths is more complex than mere vigilantism. But just as it seems he is close to understanding the case, a personal crisis will strike at the heart of Bens own family, and he will be forced to confront the compromises his career has forced upon him.

With his fourth novel, McGilloway announces himself as one of the most exciting crime novelists around: gripping, heartbreaking and always surprising, The Rising is a tour de force McGilloways most personal novel so far.
