White City Audiobook

White City

Author: Kevin Power Narrator: Patrick Moy Release Date: April 2021

From the highly acclaimed author of Bad Day in Blackrock - inspiration for the 2012 award-winning film What Richard Did, directed by Lenny Abrahamson - comes a darkly funny, gripping and profoundly moving novel about a life spinning out of control, a life live without the bedrock of familial love, and the corruption of material wealth that tears at the soul. 'It was my father's arrest that brought me here, although you could certainly say that I took the scenic route.' Here is rehab, where Ben - the only son of a rich South Dublin banker - is piecing together the shattered remains of his life. Abruptly cut off, at the age of 27, from a life of heedless privilege, Ben flounders through a world of drugs and dead-end jobs, his self-esteem at rock bottom. Even his once-adoring girlfriend, Clio, is at the end of her tether.  Then Ben runs into an old school friend who wants to cut him in on a scam: a shady property deal in the Balkans. The deal will make Ben rich and, at one fell swoop, will deliver him from all his troubles: his addictions, his father's very public disgrace, and his own self-loathing and regret. Problems solved. But something is amiss. For one thing, the Serbian partners don't exactly look like fools. (In fact they look like gangsters.) And, for another, Ben is being followed everywhere he goes. Someone is being taken for a ride. But who?

The Anatomy of a Killing Audiobook

The Anatomy of a Killing

Author: Ian Cobain Narrator: Patrick Moy Release Date: November 2020

The untold story of an IRA unit, and a killing that has echoed across the decade. On the morning of Saturday 22nd April 1978, members of an Active Service Unit of the IRA hijacked a car and crossed the countryside to the town of Lisburn. Within an hour, they had killed an off-duty policeman in front of his young son. In Anatomy of a Killing, award-winning journalist Ian Cobain documents the hours leading up to the killing, and the months and years of violence, attrition and rebellion surrounding it. Drawing on interviews with those most closely involved, as well as court files, police notes, military intelligence reports, IRA strategy papers, memoirs and government records, this is a unique perspective on the Troubles, and a revelatory work of investigative journalism. "By homing in on one man's violent death, Ian Cobain tells a riveting and tragic story but, while doing that, he has also written a precise, compelling history of the Troubles. It's one of the best I've read" RODDY DOYLE

The Abstainer Audiobook

The Abstainer

Author: Ian McGuire, Ian Mcguire Narrator: Patrick Moy Release Date: September 2020

A man hanging on by a thread. A city about to snap.   From the acclaimed author of The North Water comes an epic story of revenge and obsession.   Manchester, 1867   Two men, haunted by their pasts. Driven by the need for justice.   Blood begets blood. In a fight for life and legacy.   Stephen Doyle arrives in Manchester from New York. He is an Irish-American veteran of the Civil War and a member of the Fenians, a secret society intent on ending British rule in Ireland, by any means necessary. Now he has come to seek vengeance.   James O'Connor has fled grief and drink in Dublin for a sober start in Manchester as Head Constable. His mission is to discover and thwart the Fenians' plans. When his long-lost nephew arrives on his doorstep, he never could have foreseen how this would imperil his fragile new life - or how his and Doyle's fates would come to be intertwined.    The rebels will be hanged at dawn, and their brotherhood is already plotting revenge. 'The Abstainer is truly terrific - a can't-put-down book. It's no less than a tight 'n spare 'n suspense-filled noir novel, masterfully set in 1860s Britain and America. And like all superb historical novels, it seems as modern and as contemporary as this morning.' Richard Ford   Praise for The North Water, longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2016   'Brilliant, fast-paced, gripping. A tour de force of narrative tension and a masterful reconstruction of a lost world' Hilary Mantel   'Utterly convincing and compelling… A startling achievement' Martin Amis   'Riveting and darkly brilliant… McGuire has an extraordinary talent' Colm Toibin   'Has exceptional power and energy' Sunday Times   'A stunning novel that snares the reader from the outset and keeps the tightest grip until the bitter end' Financial Times   'A vivid read, full of twists, turns, period detail and strong characters' The Times   'Terrific - McGuire's use of the pitiless, fearsomely beautiful Arctic landscape as a theatre for enduring questions is inspired' Daily Mail   'McGuire has a sure and unwavering touch… a writer of exceptional craft and confidence' Irish Times

A Belfast Child: My true story of life and death in the Troubles Audiobook

A Belfast Child: My true story of life and death in the Troubles

Author: John Chambers Narrator: Patrick Moy Release Date: September 2020

John Chambers was brought up on Belfast's notorious Loyalist Glencairn estate, during the height of the Troubles. From an early age he witnessed violence, hatred and horror as Northern Ireland tore itself apart in civil strife. Kneecapping, brutal murders, and even public tarring-and-feathering were simply a fact of life for the children on the estate. He thought he knew which side he was on, but although raised as a Loyalist, he was hiding a troubling secret: that his disappeared mother - whom he'd always been told was dead - was a Roman Catholic, 'the enemy'. In a memoir of rare power, John explores the dark heart of Northern Irish sectarianism in the seventies and eighties. With searing honesty and native Belfast wit, he describes the light and darkness of his unique childhood, and his teenage journey through mod culture and ultra-Loyalism, before an escape from Belfast to London - where, still haunted by the shadow of his fractured family history - he began a turbulent and hedonistic adulthood. A Belfast Child is a tale of divided loyalties, dark secrets and the scars left by hatred and violence on a proud city - but also a story of hope, healing and ultimate redemption for a family caught in the rising tide of the Troubles.

Blackwatertown

Author: Paul Waters Narrator: Patrick Moy Release Date: August 2020

When maverick police sergeant Jolly Macken is banished to the sleepy 1950s Irish border village of Blackwatertown, he vows to find the killer of his brother - even if the murderer is inside the police.

The Giant, O'Brien Audiobook

The Giant, O'Brien

Author: Hilary Mantel Narrator: Patrick Moy Release Date: September 2014

Charles O'Brien, Irish bard and giant. The cynical are moved by his flights of romance; the craven stirred by his tales of epic deeds. The Surprising Irish Giant may be the sensation of the season but only his compatriots seem to attend to his mythic powers of invention. John Hunter, celebrated surgeon and anatomist, buys dead men from the gallows and babies' corpses by the inch. Where is a man as unique as The Giant to hide his bones when he is yet alive?

The Giant, O'Brien Audiobook

The Giant, O'Brien

Author: Hilary Mantel Narrator: Patrick Moy Release Date: March 2014

London, 1782: center of science and commerce, home to the newly rich and the desperately poor. In the midst of it all is the Giant, O'Brien, a freak of nature, a man of song and story who trusts in myths, fairies, miracles, and little people. He has come from Ireland to exhibit his size for money. O'Brien's opposite is a man of science, the famed anatomist John Hunter, who lusts after the Giant's corpse as a medical curiosity, a boon to the advancement of scientific knowledge. In her acclaimed novel, two-time Man Booker Prize winning author Hilary Mantel tells of the fated convergence of Ireland and England. As belief wrestles knowledge and science wrestles song, so The Giant, O'Brien calls to us from a fork in the road as a tale of time, and a timeless tale.

Learning to Talk Audiobook

Learning to Talk

Author: Hilary Mantel Narrator: Anna Bentinck, Jane Collingwood, Multiple Narrators, Patrick Moy Release Date: March 2013

The collection begins in the 1950s in an insular northern village 'scoured by bitter winds and rough gossip tongues.' For the child narrator, the only way to survive is to get up, get on, get out. The title story sees our narrator ironing out her northern vowels with the help of an ex-actress with one lung and a Manchester accent. In Third Floor Rising, she watches, dazzled, as her mother carves out a stylish new identity. With a deceptively light touch, Mantel locates the transforming moments of a haunted childhood
