La liste des tomes


1981, Carrickfergus, Irlande du Nord. Le gréviste de la faim Bobby Sands vient de mourir et la région est sous haute tension. C’est dans ce contexte oppressant que le sergent Sean Duffy est appelé d’urgence pour résoudre une étrange enquête : un homme a été retrouvé dans un terrain vague, une main coupée. La victime est un homosexuel notoire. Un mobile suffisant ? Puis une deuxième victime est découverte, présentant les mêmes sévices. Aurait-on affaire au premier serial killer de l’histoire du pays ? Duffy sait toutefois que les apparences sont souvent trompeuses, lui qui incarne un paradoxe en Ulster : il est flic et catholique.

Editions le Livre de Poche: Quelque part, dans l’hémisphère Sud, la guerre des Malouines commence. En Ulster, en ce début des années 1980, il est toujours aussi difficile d’être flic et catholique. Mais rien qui puisse troubler Sean Duffy, habitué à vérifier tous les matins si sa voiture n’a pas été piégée. Quand on lui demande de trouver à qui appartient un torse abandonné dans une valise sous le hangar d’une usine désaffectée, c’est un simple tatouage qui permet à l’inspecteur de suivre le fil rouge qui lie ordinairement un corps à son meurtrier. Des rues sous haute tension de Belfast à la lande irlandaise, où un capitaine de l’armée britannique a été abattu dans sa ferme, Duffy ne laisse aucune piste au hasard et ne se départ jamais de son sens de l’humour, même dans les moments de plus grand doute. Dans la rue j’entends les sirènes est tout bonnement époustouflant. Ian Rankin.
