The reading, jointly sponsored with the Munster Literature Centre and UCC Library, will take place at 6pm in the Learning Zone of the Boole Library. McNamee’s novel Blue is the Night won the 2015 Irish Novel of the Year Award. The novel is the culmination of the author’s crime trilogy, the first of which, The Blue Tango, was nominated for the Booker Prize. McNamee’s other work includes Resurrection Man, detailing the murderous career of the Shankhill Butchers gang, The Ultras, an account of the killing of Robert Nairac and 12.23 , a novel based on the final days of Princess Diana.
