A policeman assassinated.
A secret buried.
Against the backdrop of vicious guerrilla war, where good men become murderers and bad men become something altogether worse, family ties count for nothing in the blood-soaked fields of County Offaly.
Now, a century later, James Lucas must decide how far he will go to reveal the truth.
From rural Ireland to the mean streets of modern-day Glasgow, memory, history and sectarianism are explored in this gripping and accomplished thriller.
A remarkable debut.
