Somewhere in the forested areas of Ireland a couple blokes find themselves in a situation that has ended up in a cloud of mystery. Seam Duffy's life is in turmoil and he has to try to keep his demeanor in solving this mystery.
This was a difficult story to follow. I had trouble fully understanding the characters roles as well as the determination of the era of living. The story started out with two friends combing the forest and ended up in a mysterious circumstance. The story did not flow enough to capture my imagination. It was difficult trying to picture the scenes. With many other books of this genre the story builds up slowly and gathers pace midway through. However, I did not get that pattern with this book. I had to put the book down on several occasions and try to get into this story. However, I was never able to get pulled in. The reason for this is mainly due to the story's one dimension approach.
Belfast 1988: A man is found dead, killed with a bolt from a crossbow in front of his house. This is no hunting accident. But uncovering who is responsible for the murder will take Detective Sean Duffy down his most dangerous road yet, a road that leads to a lonely clearing on a 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.
