Borderlands will be published in the US on 2nd September 2008 by St Martin's Minotaur. Ken Bruen, author of the Jack Taylor series, has reviewed the book in advance of publication:
'Borderlands has me, dare I say, green with envy. It's rare I'm jealous of a debut novel, but I'm ferociously so of this stunning work. Devlin, the main character of this new series, is going to join the ranks of Rebus, Resnick, Davenport and Scudder as one of the reference points of character series. Not only is the writing a sheer blast of dark lyricism but the plot is utterly compulsive. Dammit, I muttered, it can't be this good, it is... it's better. This is not only a wonderous addition to the growing canon of Irish mystery writing, it's a terrific bonus to mystery writing as a whole.'
