Everything that Mr Bruen writes is wonderful. This short story revolves around Cooper - out of prison after a sentence for GBH - who also happens to be an armed bank robber. He encounters a mysterious woman who becomes obsessed with him and seems intent on getting him at any cost.

Ken Bruen's second published work, 'Her Last Call to Louis MacNeice' is a fast paced noir tale with a touch of black humor. He'd hold his fist a mere three inches away from his target, yet when he struck from that absurdly short range, he put so much power behind the strike that he could propel a man across the room and shatter his ribs in the process. Ken Bruen's books are like that: short, yet powerful and brutally effective.

Ken Bruen (b. 1951) is one of the most prominent Irish crime writers of the last two decades. Born in Galway, he spent twenty-five years traveling the world before he began writing in the mid 1990s

As an English teacher, Bruen worked in South Africa, Japan, and South America, where he once spent a short time in a Brazilian jail. He has two long-running series: one starring a disgraced former policeman named Jack Taylor, the other a London police detective named Inspector Brant

“If this thriller was any more hard-boiled, you’d be able to paint a face on it and roll it down the hill . . . Noir at its grungiest”—The Good Book Guide

Cooper had done his time in prison. Now on the outside, he’d set up a legitimate business with Doc, who he’d met inside. They called themselves “Righteous Repo,” and they even had an accountant. The repo firm did good business, but it wasn’t anywhere near as exhilarating as the bank jobs they did on the side.

Ken Bruen was born in Ireland in 1951. The author of 16 novels, including The Guards and The Dramatist in the Jack Taylor series, he now lives in Galway City with his wife and daughter. The new Jack Taylor novel, The Magdalene Martyrs, is published by St. Martin’s Press.

Having happily stumbled on Ken Bruen a few years back, picked up a Jack Taylor series and, as they say, couldn't put it down. I've read the entire work, waiting for another, decided to branch into another of his books. This is it. Wasn't surprised in the least. As good as Jack without Jack. If the main character had any luck it would be to drown quick! That would be a blessing. Her Last Call...dark humor, sarcastic, irreverent, left me wanting more, more, like an addict for a fix of great fiction. Read!

This short little book has all the refinement that the new master of neo-noir, Irishman Ken Bruen, has brought to his considerable body of work. I've read almost all of it now and never have been disappointed. He is one of those rare authors whom once you begin reading one of his books, you'll probably try to read in a single sitting.
The protagonist in "Her Last Call to Louis MacNeice" is a reference to the anti-hero protagonist (as invariably Bruen's central chararacter always is) who after getting out of prison meets a real dingbat of a woman he befriends but proves to be nothing but bad news. Originally published about a decade ago, this little gem has finally made its way across the pond. Don't worry about reading the author's books in any certain order, except perhaps for the two trilogies. Very highly recommended. Bruen is a master of his craft and sets the benchmark for noir in the new millenium.

I will read absolutely anything by Ken Bruen. His brand of Irish Noir hits me on multiple levels. Gritty and yet touching, sick and yet funny. You will never tire of reading him and look frequently for new material. All alone in the Best Dialogue category since Elmore Leonard's death. Look for the Jack Taylor series.

Modigas
This is not the best of Ken Bruen's work. The White Trilogy is better as is the Guards Jack Taylor series. But Ken Bruen on a bad day is still better than some of the other schlock out there. Try it if you enjoy Irish noir.

Asher
Bruen is a master writer at the peak of his craft. An excellent novel. Well worth the time and money.

Great read!!

Androrim
Pleasant quick read with good plot twists and clever writing. Enjoyed during long international flight. I will read other books by Ken Bruins.

Ken Bruen does not waste words when he writes. He is short, sharp and to the point.

That point is to write excellent dark and gritty crime fare.

in the short novel we have a bank robber who meets a young woman who has a dramatic effect on his life.

There is not much joy in Bruen's books but there is a lot of darkness which is sorely lacking in some books todsy.
