Belfast, 1985, amidst the “Troubles”:  Detective Sean Duffy, a Catholic cop in the Protestant RUC (Royal Ulster Constabulary), struggles with burn-out as he investigates a brutal double murder and suicide. Did Michael Kelly really shoot his parents at point blank and then jump off a nearby cliff? A suicide note points to this conclusion, but Duffy suspects even more sinister circumstances. He soon discovers that Kelly was present at a decadent Oxford party where a cabinet minister’s daughter died of a heroin overdose.  This may or may not have something to do with Kelly’s subsequent death. 

New evidence leads elsewhere: gun runners, arms dealers, the British government, and a rogue American agent with a fake identity. Duffy thinks he’s getting somewhere when agents from MI5 show up at his doorstep and try to recruit him, thus taking him off the investigation.

Duffy is in it up to his neck, doggedly pursuing a case that may finally prove his undoing.

This is the 4th book in this excellent series that was originally going to be a trilogy. Sean Duffy is a rogue cop who drinks too much, takes drugs, and annoys his superiors. But he cares about his fellow cops, about truth and solving murders, and about all the Irish people on both sides of the conflict. Although the subject matter is dark and all at times seems hopeless, there is a lot of black humour in the books, and the author makes you care deeply about his characters. Sean Duffy is a character you will want to know and read more of. It is best to start with the first book, The Cold, Cold Ground.
