I m going to Ireland in a few weeks so like any sensible fan of mysteries and thrillers I ve been reading contemporary Irish writers Gene Kerrigan s latest book The Rage came to my attention via an interview with the author on NPR s Fresh Air Other reviews have summarized the plot and central characters better than I could If it s a synopsis you re looking for check out a couple of the long reviews on I ll keep my comments brief and focus on why I think Kerrigan s book is worth buying and reading Yes the characters are interesting and the plot moves along crisply But what distinguishes Kerrigan s book from the above average mystery is neither the characters nor the plot It is his insight into contemporary Irish culture It is the way he educates the reader about the the impact of boom and bust cycles the machine is the conglomerate of bankers and politicians on the lives of Irish people The choices available to both cops and criminals is impacted by these faceless merchants of greed and power Fiction books I find often are the best medium for educating the willing learner Kerrigan manages to entertain and educate He makes me want to walk the streets of Dublin but he also makes me wary of the dark that lurks just around the corner Unless your idea of a good airplane read in Joyce s Ulysses Kerrigan is a journey worth making
