RARA-AVIS: Ken Bruen's DS Brant/Keegan

I'm reading Ken Bruen's The Killing of the Tinkers. It features a visiting London cop, DS Keegan, on vacation in Galway. Now Keegan is obviously the same character as DS Brant. There are a number of references to occurences in The White Trilogy (the character's love of McBain, his naming a dog Meyer Meyer, Meyer's later immolation, passing references to Falls and Roberts, though neither by name, and his Irish mother; and doesn't one of the Brant books mention a trip he took to visit the land of his mother, but offer no details?). So why the name change? Is it because the two series have different publishers? Does that give the publishers exclusive rights to the characters, or at least their names?

Also, anyone who has read any of the Jack Taylor series (or other Bruen books, for that matter) knows that he mentions a lot of books he has read. I'm curious about one. Does anyone know anything about Robert Irwin's Satan Wants Me?
