Profile Information

Lifford, Co Donegal
About Me:
I am a 34 year old Irish crime writer. My debut novel, Borderlands, was shortlisted for the CWA New Blood Dagger 2007. It will be published in the US in September by Thomas Dunne Books. The second Inspector Devlin novel, Gallows Lane, was released in the UK in April and will follow in the US next year. I'm currently working on the next Devlin novel, Bleed A River Deep. When not writing, I teach English Literature in St Columb's College in Derry. I live near the Irish borderlands with my wife, Tanya, and our two children (with a third on the way).
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
I'm an avid crime reader and a fan of, amongst others, James Lee Burke, Ian Rankin, John Connolly and Michael Connelly. I'll read any well written crime fiction or thrillers.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
The Godfather, the James Bond series, any good thrillers. I've recently started catching up with The Wire through the DVD boxsets - the best thing I've ever seen on TV!

Hi Brian - Thanks for accepting the invite. I'm going to have to check out one of your Inspector Devlin books. Best of luck with the release of the Gallows Lane. Reece

Hey Brian,

Congrats on child # 3. I put in an order through for your new novel and a new one by Gene Kerrigan. The books come out much earlier over there than in the states. Whichever book came first I'd start. I'm afraid it was Kerrigan over McGilloway in this particular mailing. In fact I'm still waiting for Bleed A River Deep to make it's way over. Kerrigan's book is fantastic, so Ill suck up some crime from the south while I wait for Devlin's dirty business from farther north to arrive. Cheers to you and your growing family.

I read Gallow's Lane. Great stuff. I've got a pretty good chin when it comes to being stunned by crime fiction, but Ben Devlin and crew put me on the mat. I certainly hope your prolific. Borderlands appeared on the shelves of the local Barnes & Noble, I did my part and had friends snap up the two copies that were there. I'll always look to Europe to get your books when they first hit the market. Thanks again for the read. Good luck.

Borderlands is fantastic. I'm really looking forward to Gallow's Lane - nice teaser in the Borderlands paperback, by the way.

Hi, Brian. You're getting quite the following at The Mystery Bookstore - Los Angeles: our manager Bobby McCue is a huge fan of Borderlands. Hope we get to meet you soon! Linda Brown, Asst. Manager

Hi. Thanks for the note. Nice to meet you. No international travel plans yet, but one of these days I really want to go to Ireland.

I want to thank you for the great read. I've been reading a lot of Irish crime fiction lately and came across Borderlands. It just grabbed me and never let me go. Not for an instant. It's almost childlike the giddy feeling you get when you've discovered someone who's fiction speaks to you in such a way that your's spoke to me. There's a great Motown song called 'It's a thin line between love and hate', and Devlin walks that line as well as any character I've read about in a long time. I received my copy of Gallow's Lane from Ireland and the only thing keeping me from it is Bernie Gunther from Plillip Kerr's book 'A German Requiem'. I look forward to Devlin's next case with a certain restrained glee. Thanks again.
