Edgar Award winner. Short-listed for the Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Novel

Rain Dogs, a stunning installment in the Sean Duffy thriller series, following the Edgar Award-nominated Gun Street Girl, is "another standout in a superior series" (Booklist). It's just the same things over and again for Sean Duffy: riot duty, heartbreak, cases he can solve but never get to court. But what detective gets two locked-room mysteries in one career? When journalist Lily Bigelow is found dead in the courtyard of Carrickfergus Castle, it looks like a suicide. Yet there are a few things that bother Duffy just enough to keep the case file open, which is how he finds out that Bigelow was working on a devastating investigation of corruption and abuse at the highest levels of power in the UK and beyond. And so Duffy has two impossible problems on his desk: Who killed Lily Bigelow? And what were they trying to hide? A Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award Shortlist Pick. A CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Shortlist Selection. A Booklist Editors' Choice for 2016. A Boston Globe Pick of the Best Books of 2016. An Anthony Award Nominee for Best Paperback Original. A Barry Award  Nominee for Best Paperback Original. Ned Kelly Award Shortlist for Best Crime Novel. Edgar Award winner for Best Paperback Original.
