The Deal Reviews

(The Deal) is a relentless, captivating story of greed, immorality, revenge and treachery playing out against the backdrop of an Ireland strangling in a recessionary hold ... Reminiscent of the successful Love/Hate television series ... Following on from the impressive Ghost Town, Michael Clifford is steadily building a name for himself among the elite voices of Irish crime fiction. * Irish Examiner *
(The Deal is) a cracking thriller delivering a fascinating insight into a burgeoning criminal enterprise * Irish Independent *
Praise for Ghost Town * : *
'An impressive and triumphant debut, astute in its social observations and gripping as a piece of entertainment. Mr Clifford's assured voice is a welcome addition to the canon of Irish crime fiction.' * Irish Examiner *
'A compelling odyssey into the dark heart of a country where it pays to "carry suspicion around like a spare shirt" ... Ghost Town is a journalist's book in the best sense of the word, deploying Michael Clifford's skill at reportage to forensic fictional aplomb' * Irish Independent *
