Joe Swallow tracks a terrifying killer through icy Dublin
In Dublin, newly promoted Detective Inspector Joe Swallow has settled into a comfortable arrangement with his landlady and paramour, Maria. But his newfound peace is shattered when a series of violent attacks leads to an outbreak of panic and fear.
In London, Charles Stewart Parnell tirelessly pursues the cause for Irish Home Rule. While the British are eager to discredit the Irish parliamentary leader and quash the growing movement towards independence, Swallow's conflicted loyalties pull him in different directions.
As he continues his hunt for a terrifying killer, Swallow has no choice but to traverse the volatile political scene in this thrilling Victorian mystery from the author of A June of Ordinary Murders.
"Brady paints a vivid picture of the city...employing Joe Swallow's sharp eye and the character's ambitions as an amateur painter to deftly sketch both its landmarks and its less salubrious corners."-The Irish Times
