Alan Glynn is an Irish writer born in 1960 in Dublin and is the author of four novels, from which the first one The Dark Fields (2001) was made into a film in 2011 by Neil Burger as Limitless. Alan’s another notable work is Winterland which was published in 2009 and is a thriller with a compelling story.
In a pub in Dublin, someone guns down minor league drug dealer Noel Rafferty. Later that same night his uncle with the identical name dies in a strange car accident. The police proclaim the first death as a gangland homicide and the second as a coincidental accident. However, Gina Rafferty, the main character in the book, rejects the police summation while the cops and most of the family reject her belief that someone sinister is getting away with a double murder. Obviously she is ignored because she grieves for her nephew and her brother. Mourning but outraged, she goes on to investigate the connections between her two dead relatives besides DNA and death.
In this video Alan Glynn talks about Winterland and how he developed the character of Gina Rafferty. You can access Amazon profile of Alan’s work below (Click on the Images).
