Summary
Belfast 1988: a man has been shot in the back with an arrow. It ain't Injuns and it isn't Robin Hood. But uncovering exactly who has done it will take Detective Inspector Sean Duffy down his most dangerous road yet, a road that leads to a lonely clearing on the high bog where three masked gunmen will force Duffy to dig his own grave. Hunted by forces unknown, threatened by Internal Affairs and with his relationship on the rocks, Duffy will need all his wits to get out of this investigation in one piece.

Summary
As the 6th book featuring Detective Sean Duffy begins, he's handcuffed and walking towards a clearing where he'll be forced to dig his own grave; will he figure a way out of this mess? It's 1988 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the Troubles and sectarian violence are part of life. Duffy, a Catholic who works for the Royal Constabulary, has ticked off someone while investigating the killing of a man with a crossbow in front of his own house, and now he may pay with his life. Like the other Sean Duffy books, this gritty, fast-paced novel is chock full of realistic dialogue and memorable characters. -- Description by Dawn Towery
