Purgatory (Jack Taylor series Book 10). Ken Bruen. Not that further proof was needed, but "Priest", Ken Bruen's latest apologies-be-damned journey into Hell, is additional evidence that if he is not the most talented writer of crime fiction today, he is certainly the most uninhibited. Not unlike Bruen's paradoxical hero Jack Taylor, who is as comfortable reading classic fiction in the library as he is bashing in an adversary's head with a hurley stick, Bruen's jagged, stripped down Irish prose, rendered with a chainsaw, contradicts its poetic appeal.

JACK TAYLOR by Ken Bruen Born in 1951 in Galway, Ireland . Originally published by The Mysterious Bookshop. JACK TAYLOR by Ken Bruen. It was an Irish series, so there had to be a priest, a recurring character, but I didn’t want your lovable Barry Fitzgerald gombeen of The Quiet Man. I wanted a flawed human version to whom priesthood was simply a job, and one he didn’t especially care for. When I was a child, the country was so poor, for many the only hope of education was by joining the priesthood.
