A torso in a suitcase looks like an impossible
case, but Sean Duffy isn’t easily deterred, especially when his floundering
love life leaves him in need of a distraction. So with Detective Constables McCrabban
and McBride, he goes to work identifying the victim. The torso turns out to be
all that’s left of an American tourist who once served in the US military. What
was he doing in Northern Ireland in the midst of the 1982 Troubles? The trail
leads to the doorstep of a beautiful, flame-haired, twentysomething widow,
whose husband died at the hands of an IRA assassination team just a few months
before. Suddenly Duffy is caught between his romantic instincts, gross
professional misconduct, and powerful men he should know better than to mess
with. These include British intelligence, the FBI, and local paramilitary death
squads—enough to keep even the savviest detective busy. Duffy’s growing sense
of self-doubt isn’t helping. But as a legendarily stubborn man, he doesn’t let
that stop him from pursuing the case to its explosive conclusion.
