"A stunning novel. Here at last is the Irish Chandler. Naylor is a villain worthy of Elmore Leonard in his prime" -- Ken Bruen "The Rage is a gripping thriller written with such authority and authenticity that it almost feels like documentary. If you love crime fiction, you owe it to yourself to read Gene Kerrigan" -- Stuart Neville "Kerrigan's bruising depiction of Dublin's underbelly is wrought with hard-boiled lyricism" Metro "Pacy...cuts close to the bone" Irish Independent "Written in Kerrigan's trademark, sparse style, it rattles along the way all good crime fiction should" The Irish Independent
