Vincent Naylor just released from jail resumes doing what he does best planning for an ard car robbery Bob Tidey an honest policeman discouraged by his colleagues making dea THE RAGE plunges the reader deep into the damaged psyche of a post boom Ireland It forces the reader into an uncomfortably close observation of Vincent Naylor a vicious petty thug Author Kerrigan also forces the reader into a close acuaintanceship with Vincent's violent criminal world There is his older brother Noel confederates like Liam Delaney who deals in illegal firearms an enforcer named Micky Kavanagh who once employed Vincent and Liam and Kavanagh's boss Frank Tucker to name just a few of these associates The sociology at first seems simple There is a permanent criminal underclass that deals in drugs extortion bribery and theft Drug addicts informants disloyal gang members and violent perpetrators are the most freuent murder victims However the economic collapse has changed all this The ranks of the jobless are now swollen with the working poor Unemployment poverty and homelessness have violated and unraveled the implicit authority structure The Catholic Church is still reeling from revelations of child abuse Wealthy speculators in collusion with the politicians have caused the collapse of the banking system James Snead grandfather of a young drug mule broods “'After the fight for freedom about throwing off the foreign yoke — they gave the country away The politicians fell in love with the smart fellas — gave them any law they wanted The smart fellas made speeches and gave interviews about how smart they were And in the end it was the smart fellas broke the country in pieces without any help at all from the red brigades'” p88Even the police labor beneath a cloud of complicity Snead reminds Detective Sergeant Tidey about the Garda's brutal strike breaking tactics in the '80's The recent Donegal Scandal that included planting of fake evidence bullying witnesses and extortion is another bit of Garda legacy that people remember This is a society haunted by its history The litany of injustices have accumulated and are handed down through the generations like heirlooms Even Tidey's father once warned him “'you get the habit of bowing and scraping it becomes part of your nature Don't get the habit'” p86 Vincent Naylor's cynical pay back mentality mirrors the society's sense of betrayal on the part of its leadership The case at hand seems straight forward A millionaire is gunned down in his own home The millionaire was a shady real estate speculator and heavily leveraged financier named Sweetman The case only becomes interesting when ballistics reports one of the guns used in Sweetman's murder was also involved in the cold case murder of Snead's grandson Tidey investigated the Snead case but could never prove anything and it uickly sank into oblivion Now however with a link to the murder of a high profile millionaire a task force is uickly assembled and Tidey is assigned to the new case Kerrigan deftly switches between Tidey's murder investigation Naylor's current criminal enterprise and the observations of a retired nun — another acuaintance from Tidey's past He does not delve deeply into the characters The narrative dwells instead on an intricate and suspenseful plot where justice assumes a highly subjective character Even Tidey pauses to weigh the pros and cons of committing perjury after witnessing a barroom brawl “He'd little appetite for hanging a conviction on a couple of drunken yobs who'd had the bad luck to bump into a couple of coppers eually eager to spray testosterone over everything in sight On

The RageDy a retired nun living on regrets and bad memories sees something that she can't ignore and decides to tell someone She makes a phone call that sets in motion a violent fate A cop manipulates the system to stop an enraged killer neatly contrasted against post financial crisis Ireland where an upper class of bankers and politicos manipulate the system to keep down an enraged working class The robbery of an armoured car is a highlight very little action but adrenaline filled nonetheless A great reminder of how crime fiction is great for studying contemporary social issues though the scene where the cop converses with the former nun about what it’s like to belong to an organization that suddenly loses the public’s trust was a little too on the noseFrom Rageview spoilerFrom the window of his apartment Bob Tidey’s view was of a short stretch of Glasnevin Road There was only so much to be got from watching cars shoot past and the progress of the occasional pedestrian had little to offer In the background the radio was babbling Morning Ireland was finishing an interview with a minister for something or other The minister kept saying there was no alternative The interviewer moved on to an economist who worked for a bank who began by saying he agreed with the politician it was the only game in town Tidey reached out and stabbed a button on the front of the radio jumping to Country Mix FM where Christy Moore was singing ‘John O’Dreams’ hide spoiler
