Belfast, 1985. Amid the Troubles, Detective Sean Duffy, a Catholic cop in the Protestant Royal Ulster Constabulary, struggles with burnout as he investigates a brutal double murder and suicide. Did Michael Kelly really shoot his parents at point-blank and then jump off a nearby cliff? A suicide note points to this conclusion, but Duffy suspects even more sinister circumstances. He soon discovers that Kelly was present at a decadent Oxford party where a cabinet minister's daughter died of a heroin overdose, which may or may not have something to do with Kelly's subsequent death.

New evidence leads elsewhere: gun runners, arms dealers, the British government, and a rogue American agent with a fake identity. Duffy thinks he's getting somewhere when agents from MI5 show up at his doorstep and try to recruit him, thus taking him off the investigation.

Duffy is in it up to his neck, doggedly pursuing a case that may finally prove his undoing. Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award. A Voice Arts Award Nominee. An AudioFile Best Audiobook of the Year of 2015. A 2015 Boston Globe Book of the Year. Shortlisted for the 2016 RUSA Reading List. Finalist for the 2016 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Paperback Original. Finalist for the 2016 Audie Award for Best Mystery Narration. A 2016 Anthony Award Nominee for Best Paperback Original.
