September 2012 Debut of the Month.
Tension and black humour are well mixed in this impressive, sometimes pretty brutal, debut thriller from actor turned author John Gordon Sinclair (Gregory’s Girl).
Belfast 1980s. After the death of his brother in the troubles Danny has become a very good professional hitman. Problems arise when his next victim claims to know who killed Danny’s brother.
A follow up book is planned and we look forward to getting a copy for review.
Danny McGuire doesn't like his job, but he's good at it. Since his brother's murder eight years earlier he has become a professional killer: a hit man for hire, bent on retribution. The Job: Danny's been contracted to eliminate the 'Thevshi' - the Ghost - the most elusive informant that has ever penetrated the Republican movement in Northern Ireland. But there's a problem: the Thevshi claims to know who's responsible for his brother's death. Danny's never killed someone he needed to talk to first. The Target: When Finn O'Hanlon (A.K.A. the Thevshi) is attacked in a bar in Alabama he realises that his past has finally caught up with him. Forced to flee, he embarks on a desperate journey to find Danny McGuire before it's too late. The Complication: But Danny and Finn are up against someone who's spent years hiding a secret, and it's a secret they'll go to any lengths to protect.
