The early 1980s. Belfast. Sean Duffy, a conflicted Catholic cop in the Protestant RUC (Royal Ulster Constabulary), is recruited by MI5 to hunt down Dermot McCann, an IRA master bomber who has made a daring escape from the notorious Maze Prison. In the course of his investigations Sean discovers a woman who may hold the key to Dermot's whereabouts; she herself wants justice for her daughter who died in mysterious circumstances in a pub locked from the inside. Sean knows that if he can crack the "locked room mystery," the bigger mystery of Dermot's whereabouts might be revealed to him as a reward.

The explosive conclusion to McKinty’s Troubles trilogy (after 2013’s I Hear Sirens in the Street) combines an IRA thriller with a locked-room mystery. By late 1983, Sean Duffy has fallen on hard times. Drummed out of the Royal Ulster Constabulary, he has a chance at redemption when MI5 literally comes knocking at his door. MI5 offers Sean back his rank of detective inspector if he will find an IRA bomb maker, Dermot McCann, who broke out of prison and then trained in a Libyan camp before disappearing. Dermot’s ex-mother-in-law, Mary Fitzpatrick, agrees to reveal Dermot’s location if Sean will investigate her daughter Lizzie’s death, which the previous investigating officers were certain was an accident, because, after all, Lizzie was alone in a locked pub when she died. Though it’s the end of the trilogy, readers will hope that this won’t be the last they see of Sean Duffy. Agent: Bob Mecoy, Creative Book Services. (Mar.)
