Praise for The Rage
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
