Just when he thought he was about to begin college life in peace and quiet, Dickie McCauley becomes engulfed in an unfortunate and unexpected series of events which threaten his family and his best friend, Eva.
But this precocious schoolboy is determined from the outset to put a stop to his adversaries’ efforts to endanger the people he loves.
Set in the Rosemount and Bogside areas of Derry during the turbulent years of Hitler’s war in Europe, and the IRA’s ongoing attempts to rid Northern Ireland of British occupation, Dickie sets out, in his own inimitable fashion, to thwart the efforts of those who seek to undermine his plans.
In this beguiling narrative, the third in the McCauley trilogy, Charlie Herron takes the reader on a rip-roaring journey of intrigue and deceit in which the intrepid Dickie McCauley risks everything in the pursuit of justice.
