Belfast, 1988: A man is found dead, killed with a bolt from a crossbow in front of his house. But uncovering who is responsible for the murder will take Detective Sean Duffy down his most dangerous road yet, a road that leads to a lonely clearing on a high bog where three masked gunmen will force Duffy to dig his own grave. Duffy will need all his wits to get out of this investigation in one piece.
“McKinty is one of Britain's great contemporary crime writers and the Sean Duffy books are his masterpiece.” IAN RANKIN
