Once Were Cops: A Novel by Ken Bruen

Michael OShea is a member of Irelands police force, known as The Guards. Hes also a sociopath who walks a knife edge between sanity and all-out mayhem. When an exchange program is initiatednbsp;and twenty Guardsnbsp;come to America and twenty cops from the States go to Ireland, Shay, as hes known,nbsp;has his lifelong dream come true--he becomes anbsp;member of the NYPD. But Shays dream is about to become New Yorks nightmare.Paired with an unstable copnbsp;nicknamed Kebar for his liberal use ofnbsp;a short, lethal metal stick called a K-bar, the two unlikely partners become a devastatingly effective force in the war against crime.But Kebar harbors a dangerousnbsp;secret: hes sold out to the mob to help his sister. Her rape and beating leaves her in a coma and pushes an already unstable Kebar over the edge just as Sheas dark secrets threaten boil over and into the streets of New York.Once Were Copsmelds the street poetry of Brooklyn and Dublin into a fast-paced, incomparable hard-boiled novel. This is Ken Bruen at his best.
