I live in Ireland where I'm director of a research institute and a regular media commentator on social issues. I'm the author of two police procedural novels and dozens of short stories. In addition to writing crime fiction, I'm the author or editor of 20 academic books and a 12 volume encyclopedia. I write two blogs - 'The View from the Blue House' and 'Ireland After NAMA'.
Jimmy Kiley is a keen amateur movie maker. He’s also the ruthless criminal boss of the north side of the city. When enforcing his own brand of law, he sees no reason why he shouldn’t mix business with pleasure. His kick is to provide a private viewing of his last venture to the star of the next. And his reluctant stars are only ever one hit wonders.
