Product description

Guns, violence, mob rule or defending the Cause. We all have choices. Or do we?

When Kenny Kincaid turned his back on the past, he had no idea of the legacy he was bequeathing his only son, Ian. Was he escaping the Irish paramilitaries – too much violence and bloodshed, too many victims? Or was he betraying the Cause, turning his back on his comrades-in-arms, when he fled clutching his only son and a quarter of a million pounds from a bank job? They think so, and they’re intent on revenge. Years later, Kenny is still a target – and now so is Ian. Father and son are going to have to live with it… or die with it. A controversial and compulsive thriller set against the fallout of the Northern Irish Troubles.

“A powerful and very well written thriller.” Books for Keeps

“Guaranteed to keep the reader flipping the pages.” Guardian
