A top politician stands accused of multiple murder.
A psychiatrist is threatened and the life of her small son is in danger.
A well-known investigative journalist is forced to put his career on the line and his future in doubt.
And all three situations are linked in complex and mysterious ways.
In a twisting plot which reveals many surprises, a situation emerges involving conspiracy at the highest level, bribery, impersonation, strong-arm tactics ... and sheer terror.

Des Ekin was a journalist and is the author of four books. Born in County Down, Northern Ireland, he began his career as a reporter. After spending several years covering the Ulster Troubles, he rose to become Deputy Editor of the Belfast Sunday News before moving to his current home in Dublin. He worked as a journalist, columnist, Assistant Editor and finally Political Correspondent for The Sunday World until 2012. His book The Stolen Village (2006) was shortlisted for the Argosy Irish Nonfiction Book of the Year and for Book of the Decade in the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards 2010. He is married with a son and two daughters.

This is the best Irish thriller I've read in ages ... Gripping and with an original plot and characters who are convincing, it is streets ahead of many other thrillers on the market.

... His strength lies in plotting, giving us a storyline that continually throws up twists and turns, and surprise upon surprise.

Written in a terse but readable style in the American thriller mode.
