Belfast journalist Dan Starkey is caught by his wife wrapped in the arms of a woman he hardly knows. Within hours his virtually anonymous girlfriend has been murdered, and before anyone can sort out whether she was killed by the IRA, Protestant extremists, or a jealous beau, Starkey has become the killer's next target. As he seeks to solve the crime himself, his frantic pursuit of the only clues to the killer's identity leads him deep into the most guarded reaches of Northern Irish political power.
This is a crazy book. It has the same feel as the movie Snatch. It has an interesting insite to the Northern Ireland Troubles just before the Belfast Agreement/Good Friday Agreement. It was recommended to me by some guys from Northern Ireland.
