Episode 124: Kevin McManus – Kiss My Arts
This week for Kiss My Arts, Carrigallen writer Kevin McManus joins Breifne Earley to discuss his new book ‘The Dark Path’, the first in the John Morrigan New York detective series, which was launched earlier this week.
The Dark Path introduces John Morrigan in this unmissable new crime thriller. McManus shares his origins as a writer, first hiding his hobby from everyone including his wife before finally plucking up the courage to share it with industry and get his first publishing deal with ‘The Whole Of The Moon’ in 2016.
He has since gone on to write six further releases, including a sequel to The Whole Of The Moon and three books in the Ray Logue series, ‘Nine Lives’, ‘Death Rains Down’ and ‘New Blood’.
By day, McManus is a history and geography teacher in Drumshanbo but is thoroughly enjoying his prolific writing when he gets the opportunity to get ideas down on paper between homework and classes.

The Dark Path – A John Morrigan Thriller
There is no turning back…
Detective John Morrigan arrives on the scene of what at first appears to be a routine homicide in a botched armed robbery. However, as a key witness to the murder is herself violently killed less than 24 hours later, Morrigan discovers that someone very dangerous is responsible.
As the Detective follows the killer’s trail, it leads him into a tangled web of duplicity stretching from the heart of his police department all the way to the upper echelons of political power.
But as Morrigan is about to spring a trap to catch the killer, his own dark past emerges, and he is faced with the dilemma of dropping the case or face a prison sentence.
Will he make the right choice?
Or are the stakes too high for Morrigan?
