summary Headstone

Headstone free read ´ 106 Ken Bruen ´ 6 review summary Headstone N act of appalling violence alerts them to the sleeping horror but this realization may be too late as Headstone barrels along its deadly path right to the center of Jack’s life and the heart of Galway A terrific read from a writer called “a Celtic Dashiell Hammett” Headstone is an excellent addition to the Jack Taylor series Philadelphia Inuirer. In HEADSTONE like other novels by Ken Bruen the prose lifts off the page and sings for the reader Bruen is a great stylist If Cormac Mccarthy co wrote a book with James Lee Burke it would come out a Ken Bruen novel Bruen is easy to read but his stories and his characters always leave me feeling slightly soiled like I ve just peeked in the dresser drawers while visiting a friend s house And that is the lighter side of a Ken Bruen book Bruen s main character Jack Taylor is an alcoholic he also is a destroyer Like Burke s main character in his Louisiana mysteries Dave Robicheaux Taylor has a savior complex and in the manner consistent with saviors it s the people around him that wind up suffering Never having been a alcoholic I find the amount of time given to describing drinking binges and their aftermath tedious But mostly I find the character of Jack Taylor like James Lee Burke s Dave Robicheaux sad Both are burdened with enough guilt to sink any religion In HEADSTONE Jack Taylor stands by and lets a friend be murdered His response is to feel guilty get drunk and finally revenge the death Even so Taylor is consistent Unhappiness is his chosen way of life Watching Jack Taylor is like watching a train wreck It s too fascinating to look away from Afterward the viewer asks why Why is the pain of loss greater than the joy of love Are some people destined for sorrow If so why In truth it is not the mystery plot or even their superior writing styles but rather the exploration of existential conflicts that separates writers like Bruen and Burke from the hundreds of other mystery writers in print today

The most brutal and brilliant of the Jack Taylor series HEAD STONE the 9th book in the series elevates Taylor to a whole new level one where his demons escape his maddened mind and find their way towards the surface Jack is pursued by a gang calling themselves Headstone their purpose to eradicate the perceived weak in Darwinism like fashion targeting special needs people drunks druggies and homosexuals For Jack his inner circle all feel the brunt of this senseless violence naturally he can t let that stand and sets out to wipe out their bloody carbon footprint before too many innocents are lostLike any Jack Taylor book Bruen provides Jack with multiple cases and HEADSTONE is no different Here we see Jack s services enlisted to find a thieving man of the cloth locate a missing person and be a heavy to a thug wanting to take care of some family business all while avoiding the Headstone s sharpened knives Violence is as much a part of Jack Taylor as is the lingering waft of alcohol that emanates from his pores Bruen s poetic prose exemplifies Jack in all his blood letting glory while also balancing it out with acts of generosity and an underlying notion of goodness Jack does the Garda s work albeit in dark alleyways instead of courtrooms and jailhouses yet that line between right and wrong is becoming increasingly blurred I ve read this book twice and like a pot and a Jay is to Taylor I can see me coming back for of the good stuff
