Belfast 1988: A man is found dead, killed with a bolt from a crossbow in front of his house. This is no hunting accident. 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.

Hunted by forces unknown, threatened by Internal Affairs, and with his relationship on the rocks, Duffy will need all his wits to get out of this investigation in one piece.

This is the 6th in the 'Sean Duffy' series. It was the best one yet. Lots of interesting plot twists as Duffy goes through his life with his girlfriend and baby daughter; his mates at the police station. Duffy is a Liverpool FC fan as am I. There are some funny moments around that.

As the story begins, the Troubles have simmered down somewhat but Sean & his buds at Carrickfergus station soon have their hands full with a dead drug dealer, office politics & the reemergence of old case that's about to really shake things up.
There are also developments in Sean's personal life as he revels in being a dad while fending off his arrogant father-in-law. Great mysteries & lots of action mixed with the author's trademark humour. It's one of the best in this entertaining series.
