"Rain Dogs" by Adrian McKinty was a wonderfully atmospheric mystery. Set in 1987, right in the middle of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. McKinty sets up a locked room mystery with the room being Carrickfergus Castle. The bad guys are a bunch of Finns. And, we soon know what sort of trouble we are dealing with 'cause Jimmy Savile figures prominently. Thus, we also know that this is a mystery that can't end with everything wrapped up nice and neat. So the end is weak but it is a good read.

This trilogy is by far the best work of this author. Together they provide an uproarious read.
