Kurzbeschreibung

14. November 2013 DS Lucy Black (Buch 2)
Late December. A sixteen-year-old girl is found dead on a train line. Detective Sergeant Lucy Black from the Public Protection Unit is called to identify the body. The murdered girl, Karen Hughes, having a father in prison and an alcoholic mother, had no choice but to live in residential care. With not much to go on DS Black finds the only clue to the girl's movements are her mobile phone and social media and soon discovers her 'friends' may not be all they seem...Meanwhile Lucy's mind is consumed with the recurring trauma of a previous case, where a child lost their life in house fire and the killer runs free. But Lucy has to tread carefully: with a new DI to contend with and the Assistant Chief Constable looking over her shoulder, she can't afford to make a mistake. Hurt is a tense and page-turning crime thriller about the abuse of power and how the young and vulnerable can fall prey to those they should be able to trust. Praise for Little Girl Lost: "Effortlessly blending Black's personal woes into her professional life, McGilloway weaves a taut police procedural in an unadorned style that belies the stories complexity". (Irish Times). "Cleverly constructed, packed with vibrant and believable characters...It confirms him as one of the most original voices in the notably expanding field of Irish crime fiction." (Irish Independent). "Assured and grittily realistic tale from an author who is being compared to James Lee Burke and Ian Rankin". (Sunday Business Post).

Pressestimmen

Hurt is only Black's second outing, it's a nimbly written and cleverly plotted tale. It's the details of the Derry landscape as much as the investigation into the murder of a teenage girl that held my interest. Give Black a try: this could be the start of a beautiful friendship. Daily Telegraph I thought this book was excellent. The characters were realistic and the setting was painted vividly, if frighteningly. I'd certainly recommend this book both for McGilloway fans and if you just want a good crime book to read. thecrimewarp This a very well-paced story, which ratchets up a gear towards the end. Crime fiction and police procedural fans will enjoy this. Lucy Black is a welcome addition to the ranks of fictional detectives. randomthingsthroughmyletterbox

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hurt - Young People much too Vulnerable.. 16. November 2013
Von S. Jai Michaela TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
... because of their more than rotten family structures are easily overcome by persons they normally trust.

Brian McGilloway is widely known for his Irish Borderlands thrillers featuring Inspector Devlin.
In his book Little Girl Lost he introduced to his readers DS Lucy Black, who is working at the Public Protection Unit and with that he had written an other real bestseller.
Now DS Lucy Black returns in "Hurt", an entangled thriller that shows once more how the young and vulnerable can fall prey to those they should normally trust blindly. Everything is about the abuse of power.

A sixteen-year-old girl is found dead on a train line one freezing December night in Derry. Only because the theft of copper cables the incoming train couldn't run over her and so a murder is discovered which had to seem a suicide of a desperate teenager. Detective Sergeant Lucy Black is called to identify the body of the murdered girl as Karen Hughes. As Lucy delves deeper in to the case, she discovers that Karen has been living in residential care as the child of an alcoholic mother and a father behind bars. The only clue as to the girl's movements are her - brand new - mobile phone and various social media sites - where her 'friends' are not all friendly - quite the opposite!

Lucy is no stranger to death: She wanted to save a mother and her two children, when the estranged father set their house on fire - but she was only able to save wee Joe, now adopted by a couple who obviously love him. But Lucy can't let go - she is still searching for the monster who burned his house and his family...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another page-turner 10. Dezember 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
"Hurt" is yet another page-turner by Brian McGilloway. Even though, to be honest, I prefer Lucy Black's male Counterpart - Inspector Devlin - I think the female Protagonist in These novels is quite impressive too. Also I like the choice of topics (this one is a rather disturbing one - especially for mothers, so beware), as they are always "real", even disturbingly so...

4.0 von 5 Sternen stimmige und spannende unterhaltung 11. Dezember 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
McGilloways zweiter Lucy Black Roman bietet gute und solide Krimiunterhaltung, es hilft wenn man den ersten Lucy Black Roman noch etwas im Kopf hat, denn die alten Geister tauchen auch hier auf.
Der Fall hat Lokalkolorit, ist angemessen komplex und die Charaktere sind tiefgründig genug.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gripping police procedural 21. Januar 2014
Von Shelleyrae - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The second book to feature DS Lucy Black by Brian McGilloway, Hurt begins with the discovery of a body, quickly identified as that of a missing teenage girl. In and out of care due to her mother's alcoholism and her her father's incarceration, Karen Hughes has had her throat cut before being discarded on the train tracks. With little more than the information stored in Karen's phone and on social media to guide them, Lucy and her colleagues begin to trace her last movements, uncovering a predator hiding behind sock puppet Facebook accounts. And then another young girl goes missing...

Hurt is a tense police procedural with a well crafted main plot which explores the way in which predators exploit social media to groom vulnerable girls, manipulating them for their own ends, and the difficulties law enforcement can face in tracing them. The story twists and turns as the investigation unfolds, unveiling a grim tale of perversion and murder, exposing the corruption of power and the abuse of trust.

Lucy is a young, dedicated police officer who tends to become personally involved in her work and this puts her at risk during the investigation as she closes in on Karen's killer. McGilloway's characterisation is well rounded and believable, I found I really liked Lucy, admiring her passion, her drive and her sense of justice. Partnered with an old timer who is struggling with his own demons, Lucy demonstrates loyalty and Lucy's professional life is further complicated by her mother, who is in effect her boss, and with whom she has a strained relationship.

A second subplot involves a former case of Lucy's in which she failed to prevent the murders of a young woman and her mother. The perpetrator is known but has managed to elude law enforcement, in part because of his connections with the less savoury elements of the area. The case eats away at Lucy and is in part the impetus for her relentless pursuit of Karen's killer.

Hurt is a gripping crime thriller, well written with an appealing protagonist, interesting characters and an absorbing plot. I hope to read the introduction to DS Lucy Black in Little Girl Lost before the release of the third book in the series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love Brian McGilloway books 1. Dezember 2013
Von MELISSA MORGAN - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Brian McGilloway is a read author. I have read all his books. Great plot twists in this one. If you have never read any he writes about two different crime solvers. Lucy is in this one. But his other character Devlin is great also, try some of those also.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hurt - Young People, often too vulnerable ... 16. November 2013

Brian McGilloway is widely known for his Irish Borderlands thrillers featuring Inspector Devlin.

But Lucy can't let go - she is still searching for the monster who burned his house and his family...
And now, with a new boss surveiling every move of her - having also a very good motive for that, she is under a pressure that has to find a valve sooner or later.

So she looks in places she better shouldn't, moves relationships built over decades - also between the police and the local thugs...
And the only one who is always ready to help her, also if it would cost his life, pays dearly for his commitment.

This is a thriller - OK.
But also an intense study of family relations - Lucy's and a whole lot of others in Northern Ireland after The Troubles.
Who doesn't want to intrude or delve deep into Northern Irish culture, maybe will have some difficulties with this very well constructed crime novel.

Only because of this a star less - the Northern Irish society is not an easy topic to understand for strangers...
4.0 von 5 Sternen DS Lucy Black 16. April 2014
Von Peebee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the first Brian McGilloway book I have read and I enjoyed it enough to order the remaining books in the series. The standard of writing is really good and this compensated for a plot that was, at times, a little over stretched. Would recommend this book to those who like a good crime story.
