Dermot Michael Coyne of Chicago goes to Ireland to uncover the true story of his grandparents, who left Ireland under a veil of mystery in the 1920s. There, Coyne meets Nuala Anne McGreal, a college student who helps him translate his grandmother's diaries. His grandparents, the O'Riadas, and the bloody history of Ireland from 1919 to 1923 are mysteriously linked to present-day peace talks between the Irish and English. The investigators learn the talks - and their own lives - hang in the balance unless they can uncover the secret of the O'Riadas and one of history's great mysteries - the murder of Michael Collins, the one man who could have ended the unrest.
