A copper learns he has been living a lie: the past returns with a vengeance.
In this eight novel in the series, Inspector Minogue is trying to keep up with a Celtic Tiger Ireland that’s racing to the future. But as the saying goes, the past isn’t dead: it’s not even past.
November late 1980s sees Garda Declan Kelly working his last off-duty shift outside a nightclub when he witnesses a double murder. Spared a bullet in the back of the head, he is snared instead by a crime family and forced into an impossible position. His suicide note to his pregnant wife brings her overpowering rage as well as grief. It also gives her a thirst for revenge on all who let her husband down – including the Guards themselves. Her husband had asked for help from his Sergeant. The reply was a cold demand to turn himself in, as a criminal.
From a jittery addict, Minogue hears that a crime syndicate has had an insider copper - a senior, ranking Garda officer - for many years. Is this a ruse? Probing further, he runs up against a disturbing link between a trafficked Moldovan girl. Also, there are rumblings of a feud between Irish crime families and Eastern European gangsters too. Trawling the pubs and club, Minogue comes in contact with a prostitution racket run by an affable, accented ‘George.’ A chase down the teeming lanes and streets of central Dublin ends in a violent clash between police and criminals, and between the present and the past.
'Brady's novels featuring Matt Minogue are brilliant and melodic. Now comes Islandbridge, which is even better. Brady takes his talent to new heights, and this is sure to be one of the top books of the year. Must reading.’ - Globe and Mail
'Particularly powerful stuff – genius.’ -Toronto Star
