Dublin 1941. A brutal murder. A missing ledger. Mistaken identity. And Eamon Foley is running for his life. Tralee, nine months later, Foley is in a crowded pub. The music is loud. The singing is louder. His brother-in-law Joe McCarthy is shot dead. In the chaos Foley thinks he sees the Dublin killer rushing through the door. Is this a message? Have they caught up with him at last, looking for the ledger? Or is it as the local Gardaí suspect – Joe was killed by a jealous husband, given his reputation as a notorious womanizer? They dismiss Foley’s concerns. With horrendous results.
