"A stunning novel. Here at last is the Irish Chandler. Naylor is a villain worthy of Elmore Leonard in his prime. And the novel sings, even the violence is a piece of lyrical artistry. A book that is indeed tough, in your face but it is the sheer tenderness that lingers." -- 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 "Written in Kerrigan's trademark, sparse style, it rattles along the way all good crime fiction should." The Irish Independent "Kerrigan's bruising depiction of Dublin's underbelly is wrought with hard-boiled lyricism." Metro "Pacy...cuts close to the bone." Irish Independent
