Description

Staff Pick: “An anonymous figure is posting videos online boasting about setting fires across Belfast and Sammy Agnew suspects his own son. Set parallel is the story of Dr. Jonathan Murray, whose newborn daughter isn’t quite as she seems. A story of loyalist Northern Ireland with a dash of magical realism, this book will have you thinking over the nuances of family, loyalty, class and violence. The best book I’ve read in years – it’ll have you re-reading sentences because they’re just that good. Emilie.

Dr Jonathan Murray fears his new-born daughter is not as harmless as she seems. Sammy Agnew is wrestling with his dark past, and fears the violence in his blood lurks in his son, too. The city is in flames and the authorities are losing control. As matters fall into frenzy, and as the lines between fantasy and truth, right and wrong, begin to blur, who will these two fathers choose to protect?
