Until his 21st birthday, Sean Corrigan didn’t even know he had an uncle—let alone one who was accused of murder, fled to Ireland, and was later killed by MI5. Narrator Oliver Wyman easily handles the transitions as the story alternates between Sean in 1996 and his Uncle Mike, in 1972. Sean is portrayed with a youthful and expressive Midwestern accent; Mike is portrayed with a cocky, yet at times contemplative, Brooklyn accent. As both men travel to Ireland on a journey to understand the past, Wyman makes liberal use of his Irish brogue—from the occasional slips of the Irish-American characters to the heavy accents of those they encounter in Ireland. As it becomes clear that the characters' stories are more intertwined than they first seem, Wyman’s reading helps bring all the threads together.
