Boozy Belfast journalist Dan Starkey gives in to his lustier impulses and cheats on his wife, but what starts as a spontaneous fling ends up having outrageous consequences. One day Dan finds his mistress dead and his wife missing. It seems Dan's crush had important family connections, and Dan suddenly finds himself a wanted murderer, chased by several Northern Ireland Political factions and the IRA. Performer Glen Murrant is at once gregarious and sardonic, capturing the wry Irish humor and mordant wit with which Starkey greets his insane predicament. With its eccentric plot and endearing anti-hero, Colin Bateman's Divorcing Jack makes for an unlikely guide to Belfast.
Dan Starkey is a journalist in Belfast, who shares with his wife, Patricia, an appetite for drinking and dancing. Dan meets Margaret, and things begin to get out of hand - terrifyingly, she is murdered. Before long, Dan is a target himself, racing as fast as he can against time to crack the mystery.
