Praise so far:
Hannibal Lechter – supremely dangerous, sophisticated, and totally literate. Scanlon’s prose flows off Victor’s lips in an unending alliterative stream of dark images and word play. Victor is a psychopathic killer whose erudition makes him one of the most disturbing characters I have read about in a long time.

Seamus Scanlon’s THE MCGOWAN TRILOGY, set on both sides of the porous Irish border during the ‘troubles’ of the 1980s, is internecine both in the modern sense (relating to internal struggles) as well as the word’s original meaning (fought all the way to the death). Scanlon’s literate theatricality in the THE MCGOWAN TRILOGY, is devastating but irresistible.
James L. de Jongh Emeritus Professor of English (Graduate Centre, CUNY)
THE MCGOWAN TRILOGY is a superb achievement. Addictive in its telling, the three sections come together to plot points on a map that is part a man’s soul and part a hell of his own creation. Wonderfully done by Scanlon, THE MCGOWAN TRILOGY opens a pandora’s box of ambition and regret, leaving the viewer haunted by what they see. Urban Waite (Sometimes the Wolf)
