When undercover detective Cormac Kelly infiltrates a ruthless gang bent on kidnapping and extortion, he is forced to break cover and shoot his way out of a hostage situation gone bad. Tearing through the dangerous streets of Belfast with a twelve-year-old boy and his seriously injured father in tow, Kelly desperately tries to evade the gang and reconnect the family with the boy's mother, football agent Lydia Gallagher. But she is in London, unaware of their freedom and being forced by the gang to betray her top client. As Kelly breaks every rule in the book and crosses the line from legit police officer to rogue cop on the run, the role of dapper but deadly ex-spook Stephen Black means the difference between life and death...What They're Saying About Gerard Brennan"A cheeky slice of urban noir, a drink-soaked, drug-addled journey into the violent underbelly of one of Europe's most notorious ghettos, Wee Rockets makes The Outsiders look like The Teletubbies" - Colin Bateman"Gerard Brennan stands apart from the Irish crime fiction crowd with a novel rooted in the reality of today's Belfast. The author's prose speaks with a rare authenticity about the pain of growing up in a fractured society, shot through with a black humour that can only come from the streets. Wee Rockets is urban crime fiction for the 21st century, and Brennan is a unique voice among contemporary Irish writers." - Stuart Neville"In Wee Rockets Gerard Brennan has written a fast-paced, exciting story of West Belfast gang culture; brimming with violence, authentic street dialogue and surprising black humour. This is a great debut novel. Brennan takes us into the heart of Belfast's chav underclass, in a story that lies somewhere in the intersection between The Warriors, Colin Bateman and Guy Ritchie. This is the first in what undoubtedly will be a stellar literary career. - Adrian McKinty"the real deal — the writing is razor sharp, the characters engaging, the ending a blast. From start to finish it's true Northern Noir, crafted with style and wit." - Brian McGilloway"...a Coen Brothers dream, via Belfast... Gerard Brennan grabs the mantle of the new mystery prince of Northern Ireland..." - Ken Bruen "It needs to be said that Gerard Brennan's The Point is terrific. Scorchingly funny, black humour at its finest and the most inventive car theft ever!" - Arlene Hunt"Noir from Norn Iron! A lean slice of grindhouse from Belfast's new crime hack." - Wayne Simmons

Belfast Killer Rea Carlisle glaubt an ihr Glück. Sie hat von ihrem Onkel, den sie kaum kannte, ein Haus in Belfast geerbt, doch als sie aufräumt, findet sie ein Buch – und erfährt Ungeheuerliches. Offensichtlich war ihr Onkel ein Serienmörder. Minutiös listete er auf, wann er wen getötet hat. Rea wendet sich an den einzigen Polizisten, dem sie vertraut. Jack Lennon jedoch hat seine eigenen Probleme. Er ist suspendiert, man will ihm seine kleine Tochter wegnehmen. Zuerst glaubt er Rea ihre abenteuerliche Geschichte nicht. Doch dann ist sie tot – und er wird verdächtig, sie ermordet zu haben. „Packend von der ersten Seite an.“ Sunday Independent „Was Stuart Neville so besonders macht: Er vergisst niemals das menschliche Herz, auch wenn es in tiefster Dunkelheit schlägt.“ Val McDermid

Belfast, 1985. Waffenschmuggel an den Grenzen, Aufstände in den Städten, üble Popsongs im Radio. Und mittendrin Detective Inspector Sean Duffy, der sich als katholischer Bulle in der protestantischen Royal Ulster Constabulary durchschlagen muss. Das wohlhabende Ehepaar Kelly wird brutal ermordet, und kurz darauf entdeckt man die Leiche ihres Sohnes Michael. In einem Abschiedsbrief gesteht er die Tat. Aber irgendetwas scheint an der Sache faul zu sein, und schon bald gibt es weitere Opfer. Duffy muss ins wenig geliebte englische Nachbarland reisen und in den elitären Kreisen von Oxford ermitteln. Stets an seiner Seite: die MI5-Agentin Kate – wertvolle Informantin und geheime Schwachstelle des katholischen Bullen. Und während sie ihm ein verlockendes Angebot macht, das sein ganzes Leben verändern könnte, gerät Duffy immer tiefer hinein in einen Fall, der ihm mächtige Gegner beschert. Zu mächtig vielleicht ...
