Summary

When maverick Police Sergeant Jolly Macken is banished to the sleepy 1950s Irish border village of Blackwatertown, he vows to find the killer of his brother - even if the murderer is inside the police. But a lot can happen in a week. 

Over seven days Macken falls in love, uncovers dark family secrets, accidentally starts a war and is hailed a hero and branded a traitor. When Blackwatertown explodes into violence, who can he trust? And is betrayal the only way to survive?

Fantastic, Fast Moving, Compulsive Page Turner!

Fabulous book! Buckle up! Grabs you from the first moment and is the most wonderfully exciting non-stop ride full of intrigue, action, darkness, humour and emotion. The plot is beautifully woven. Such well rounded characters, feel I know them, the lead character is a friend and I miss him and his thoughts in my head already! Can’t wait for the next book! Would make a superb movie! Download it, you will not be disappointed! Happy listening!
