his gripping Irish thriller is an intriguing new departure
for comic noir writer Declan Burke.
“A dying man, if he is any kind of man, will live beyond
the law.” The elderly German, Karl Uxkull, was senile or
desperate for attention. Why else would he concoct a tale
of Nazi atrocity on the remote island of Delphi, off the
coast of Donegal? And why now, 60 years after the event,
just when Irish-American billionaire Shay Govern has
tendered for a prospecting licence for gold in Lough
Journalist Tom Noone doesn’t want to know. With his young
daughter Emily to provide for, and a ghost-writing
commission on Shay Govern’s autobiography to deliver, the
timing is all wrong. Besides, can it be mere coincidence
that Karl Uxkull’s tale bears a strong resemblance to the
first thriller published by legendary spy novelist
Sebastian Devereaux, the reclusive English author who has
spent the past 50 years holed up on Delphi?
But when a body is discovered drowned, Tom and Emily find
themselves running for their lives, in pursuit of the
truth that is their only hope of survival.
