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
