In Northern Ireland in 2017, Bob McCallan, a retired officer of the Royal Ulster Constabulary, is killed in a gas explosion, leaving his son, Jack, an unexpected fortune. With that inheritance, the secret of a violent and deadly past begins to unravel. Stephen Armstrong narrates this grimly atmospheric “sins-of-the-father” debut novel with undertones of weariness. Heroes are exposed as villains, illusions as realities, and allies as enemies. In delivering the Cockney speech of Jack and the thick Irish brogues of the other characters, Armstrong is both euphonic and virile. K.A.T. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
