Green Hell by Ken Bruen

In the new Jack Taylor novel, Green Hell, Bruen’s dark angel of a protagonist has hit rock bottom: one ofhis best friends is dead and the other has stopped speaking to him; he has given up battling his addiction to alcohol and other substances; and his firing from Irish national police is by now ancient history. But Jack isn’t about to embark on a self-improvement plan. Instead, he has taken up a vigilante case against a respected professsor of literature at the University of Galway who has developed a savage habit his frneds in high places are only too happy to ignore. One late spring day, Jack rescuse a preppy American student from a couple of kid thugs whit baseball bats and unexpectedly gains a new sidekick. The student, in Galway on a Rhodes scholarship, abandons his treatise on Beckett and instead dvotes himself to slinging back shots of Jameson and writing a biograpy of Galways’ most magnetic rogue. Between pub crawls and violent outbursts, Jack’s vengeful plot against the professor soon spirals towards chaos, putting both himself and the student in danger. Enter Emerald, an edgy young goth who could either be the answer to Jack’s problems, or the last ripped stitch in his undoing. Ireland may be known as a “green Eden,” but in Jack Taylor’s world, the national colour has a decidedly lethal sheen…
