Then betrayal, suspicion and guilt starts the rot Fantastic Good stuff.
Good read Coming from West of Ireland and living in Kilburn for a few years, brought back memories Disappointed with portrayal of drinking and getting drunk as the only activity Otherwise very well written and enjoyable.
Set in the 1980s, the author treats us to an authentic look at village life in Ireland A fatal hit and run incident adds intrigue and suspense, making this a very enjoyable read It has everything, crime, romance and characters with depth, look forward to from Kevin McManus.
Good read could have had better endingGood book kept you turning pages but I was a bit disappointed with the ending I would however still recommend this book.
