Praise for Gallows Lane The mystery element itself is satisfyingly complex, and McGilloway peoples the story with realistic and fully fleshed characters.

Praise for Gallows Lane. McGilloway is a major force in crime writing, and Inspector Ben Devlin is that rare creature: a detective who is not violent or tortured, but who is intensely, movingly human, and it is his humanity and decency that grip the reader and give these novels a searing honesty. The Devlin books are set to become one of the great series in modern crime fiction. The mystery element itself is satisfyingly complex, and McGilloway peoples the story with realistic and fully fleshed characters. Old guilt and new sins create a tangled puzzle in McGilloway's outstanding second Inspector Devlin mystery.

Debbie had slept with her back to me, her body taut and hard. She spoke little over breakfast and, truth be told, I was glad to have the distraction of work. She spoke little over breakfast and, truth be told, I was glad to have the distraction of work e was right and that my pride had placed my family in harm’s way. I hoped that if I could satisfactorily conclude the business with Kerr, such an admission would not be required. It was almost eight-thirty when I reached the station. I was the first there.

Gallows Lane: An Inspector Devlin Mystery. When a young woman is found beaten to death on a building site in what appears to be a sexually-motivated killing, Devlin is distracted from his assignment of keeping tabs on Kerr.

Gallows Lane' is Brian McGilloway's 2nd in his Inspector Devlin series and the last I'll read. Recommended to Mary by: Library Book Sale. It's a decent procedural (although with some glaring dumb spots) and not a bad book, but ultimately the writing is just too bland. Shelves:, read-but-unowned, 1990-2009, 95, paperback, book-sale.

Brian McGilloway Gallows Lane And thus we sit together now, And all night long we have not stirred, And yet God has not said a word! From ‘Porphyria’s Lover’, Robert Browning Chapter One Sunday, 28 May James Kerr returned to Lifford on a blustery morning in May, shuffling under the heavy clouds that scudded across the sky towards the North. And thus we sit together now, And all night long we have not stirred, And yet God has not said a word! From ‘Porphyria’s Lover’, Robert Browning.

Garda Inspector Bendict Devlin's enquiries point to a local body-builder, but when born-again ex-con James Kelly appears on the scene Devlin realises that the case is more complex, and more sinister, than he had imagined.

The heart-stopping follow-up to Brian McGilloway’s thrilling debut, Gallows Lane continues the compelling series that captures modern Ireland and showcases a striking new voice in crime writing.In his critically acclaimed debut, Borderlands, Brian McGilloway opened a window onto modern Ireland through the eyes of Garda Inspector Benedict Devlin, drawing comparisons to John Connolly and Ian Rankin for his tight, fast-paced plotting. In Gallows Lane, the Donegal summer dawns unusually hot, and Inspector Devlin returns to the borderlands separating the North and South of Ireland, waiting for a notorious ex-con, James Kerr, to return home on early release. Kerr claims to have found God while in prison, but the superintendant of police wants him to stay on the other side of the border.When a young woman is found beaten to death on a building site in what appears to be a sexually-motivated killing, Devlin is distracted from his assignment of keeping tabs on Kerr. Enquiries into the murder soon point to a local bodybuilder and steroid addict. But days later, the born-again ex-con Kerr is found nailed to a tree—crucified. Increasingly torn between his young family and his job, Devlin is determined to apprehend those responsible for the murders before they strike again, even as the carnage begins to jeopardize those he cares about most. Taking its title from the name of the road down which condemned Donegal criminals were once led, Gallows Lane is a sharp, modern thriller; a stunning second installment in what John Connolly says is “set to become one of the great series in modern crime fiction."

The problem with this writer is that his writing, characters and plot lines are so good, so interesting, that it is hard to put his books down. Therefore, I read them too quickly and hunger for more. There is no superfluous, extraneous material to slog through or skip. You just want to keep reading to get to know each character and follow the story to its conclusion. Although, towards the end of the books, you want to go slow to savor the experience. It is hard to let go so one has to hope there are more and more of his books to come. Whether it is this particular character or another main character, he just writes so well you never want it to end.

in every story it is a plot but in this one the plot is secondary. what it is relevant it is the characters. The author is so down to earth and that characteristic make the people in the book believable. they aren't characters in a book but real people we could say everyday people.
To me this fact made enjoy the book more because it isn't a simple"who did kill this one or not" it is more about what is going on around the characters lives and their feelings. Detective Devlin is the kind of policeman that I'd like to be in charge in case of my murder. The originality of all this,sadly it,s he is a man of faith in God and he doesn't give up in spite he can get upset and physically sick. I'll continue buying his novels because he works with the characters as humans of many layers and he goes more deep that we cannot understand what is going on especially regarding untold feelings.

Bad latin I know, but for me it describes the lazy writing I encountered reading this book. Whereas the term "Deux ex machina" describes the use of miraculous events coming out of thin air to rescue a plot, this book relies on inexplicable bad judgement bordering on stupidity from an experienced and heretofore effective police officer. I won't be following the "career" of our hero any further. I can find other, less boring ways to be depressed.

I think Brian McGilloway is a brilliant writer. What a fine series!
  • Felolune
So pleased I discovered this author, really good intricate plot lines, characters you actually like and care for, and I love how the author ends the books, a really good cover of all that's gone on and how it ended up. Some authors seem to reach a cut off point at the end of their books and your left wondering about some things, but not in these books and I like that. Highly recommended.

This one is full of twists and turns. Very good read. A little slow at first but develops into an interesting mystery.
  • Geny
McGilloway is an amazing writer. I originally purchased 1 book and followed it by Gallor's Lane and then all of the rest. These are keepers as they are well worth reading again. Characters and setting are well developed but do not interfere with the story plot. I do wish he would write more.
Thank you Wordery USA, for Brian McGilloway's "Gallows Lane". A great read, an exceptional book, well worth the wait.
