I will confess right now, I love Ken Bruen when he's writing that sparse, cut down, terse, lyrical, moving, disturbing fantastic prose that he does.  ONCE WERE COPS is one of those books - and I couldn't wait to read it.

From the Blurb:

Michael O'Shea is a member of Ireland's police force, known as the Guards.  He's also a sociopath who walks a knife-edge between sanity and all-out mayhem.

Opening Lines:

"Where Do I Begin?"

Wasn't that like a song?

And a pretty fucking bad one?

Like my story.

Michael O'Shea is a member of Ireland's police force, known as the Guards.  He's also a sociopath who walks a knife-edge between sanity and all-out mayhem.  When an exchange program is initiated and twenty Guards come to America and twenty cops from the States go to Ireland, Shea, as he's known, has his lifelong dream come true - he becomes a member of the NYPD.  But Shea's dream is about to become New York's nightmare.
