Slaughter's Hound

by Declan Burke

A gripping fast paced Irish thriller to set your nerves on edge! One of a series featuring down at heel private eye Harry Rigby it can also be read as a stand alone novel. Some deadpan dark humour helps alleviate the extremely graphic violence with some very brutal and unpleasant characters. A page turner if ever there was one which races to an explosive climax in more ways then one!

Midnight, and balmy yet.
I'd seen him jump, pacing the yard below, phone clamped to my ear...............
I heard him first. Faint but clear from nine storeys high.
'bell jars away.........'
From instinct I glanced up with the next line already forming, 'lets be fearless with our promises', but by then he'd jumped, a dark blur plummeting, wings folded against the drag like some starving hawk out of the noon sun, some angel betrayed.
I guess he punched through the cab's roof so hard he sent metal shearing into the petrol tank. All it took was one spark.
'Boom........'
