review 1: Started this about 3 days ago and couldn't put it down. The combination of actual events and issues in modern political history in Northern Ireland combined with a massively flawed and damaged protagonist trying to redeem his soul - altogether made for a great read. Modern day Belfast never looked so cold and corrupt as it does in this novel. Highly recommended especially if you have any interest in fiction based on The Troubles.
review 2: Gerry Fegan, a former IRA hit man, has finally been paroled but drinks heavily because he is haunted by the ghosts of the 12 people he killed. He finally embarks on a mission to kill the men who gave him his orders to escape his demons; the book is cleverly separated into chapters, starting with 12 and reducing as he kills o
... moreff those in the militant IRA underworld, who believe he is a babbling, useless drunk and a liability to their movement. Somewhat incongruent with the rest of the story, Fegan is attracted to Marie McKenna, a relative of one of the newly slain men and a pariah to the Republicans for marrying a cop. So, Fegan tries to redeem himself by saving Marie and her young, innocent daughter. less
