The death of a well-connected Irish newspaper publisher triggers a clandestine hunt to recover his memoirs.
The Americans, concerned that Seán Madden’s private record of the past century will jar with the official account, need to get their hands on it before the British and Irish. But Madden’s hardnosed granddaughter, heir to the North West Chronicle, has her own interests to protect as well.
This pulsating page-turner takes the reader on an epic journey of war and peace, love and loss, politics and criminality right across the twentieth century.
Every secret has its season, and all Seán Madden’s – and all of Derry’s – are in danger of being laid bare.
