Gallows Field, by Brendan Gerad O'Brien

e8ebe4f3-5493-4792-8d52-57026c2a33e1

Ireland 1941. A crowded pub. The music is loud. The singing is louder. Joe McCarthy is shot dead. And no one sees a thing.
His brother-in-law Eamon Foley is first on the scene. And Foley is horrified to see a face from his past. 
Foley used to work in a backstreet hotel in Dublin when some incriminating items went missing. The hotel’s sinister director blames Foley. 
Is Joe’s killing a message that they’ve caught up with him, looking for what they think he stole?
Is Alex Cassidy, the strange but very pretty girl who initially helped him escape from the hotel, responsible for betraying Foley now? Has her relationship with a much older Garda Sgt Liam Edge poisoned her loyalty to Foley, trading him in to secure the Sgt’s affection?
But Sgt Edge doesn’t think Joe’s murder is linked to Foley’s past. Joe was involved with numerous women. Edge believes Joe was a victim of some jealous husband.
Then Foley’s sister Mary is found dead in the town park.
And his son is taken by a nun in a car. 
When Foley illegally obtains evidence about who is responsible, the crusty Sgt Edge dismisses it, insisting they follow proper police procedure.
With dreadful results.
