Detective Sean Duffy’s evening is not going well at all as the story opens; he is being marched up a hill, by armed gunmen, toward a bog where he is expected to dig his own grave.  How did he come to be in this situation?  Therein lays a story.  It is 1988 and tensions in Belfast between Catholics and Protestants run high, the IRA a dangerous presence in the background.  When a man is killed at his front door by a crossbow, Duffy and his partner, McCrabben, find the method unusual but the outcome not so out of the ordinary.  The victim moved to the area recently, was suspected of being in the drug trade, and probably failed to pay off the locals who took a dim view of such disrespect.   However when Duffy starts asking questions, people get far more riled up than a hit on a recently arrived pusher would warrant.  Clearly something is going on and finding the answers may be a matter of life and death.  Duffy’s personal life is a bit topsy turvy too.  He is involved with Beth, an attractive young woman, he would like to make his wife but she resists the idea.  Duffy is getting used to the role of father to their baby daughter.  Beth’s father is of different ideology than Duffy and very wealthy.  Duffy has Daddy issues.  This very readable gritty Irish mystery has interesting characters and a nicely complex plot.
