Adrian McKintya Coen Brothers dream, via Belfast Gerard Brennan grabs the mantle of the new mystery prince of Northern Ireland Ken BruenIt needs to be said that Gerard Brennans The Point is terrific. Scorchingly funny, black humour at its finest and the most inventive car theft ever! Arlene HuntNoir from Norn Iron! A lean slice of grindhouse from Belfasts new crime hack. Wayne Simmons Praise for WEE ROCKETS by Gerard BrennanThe Wire? This is Barbed Wire. A cheeky slice of urban noir, a drink-soaked, drug-addled journey into the violent underbelly of one of Europes most notorious ghettos, Wee Rockets makes The Outsiders look like the Teletubbies Colin BatemanGerard Brennan stands apart from the Irish crime fiction crowd with a novel rooted in the reality of todays Belfast. The authors prose speaks with a rare authenticity about the pain of growing up in a fractured society, shot through with a black humour that can only come from the streets. Wee Rockets is urban crime fiction for the 21st century, and Brennan is a unique voice among contemporary Irish writers. Stuart NevilleIn Wee Rockets Gerard Brennan has written a fast paced, exciting story of West Belfast gang culture- brimming with violence, authentic street dialogue and surprising black humour. This is a great debut novel. Brennan takes us into the heart of Belfasts chav underclass, in a story that lies somewhere in the intersection between The Warriors, Colin Bateman and Guy Ritchie. This is the first in what undoubtedly will be a stellar literary career. Adrian McKinty
