Publisher's Summary

In this exciting sequel to the acclaimed Dead I Well May Be, the mercenary Michael Forsythe is forced to infiltrate an Irish terrorist cell, confronting murder, mayhem, and the prospect of his own execution.

Michael is on holiday in Spain when a soccer riot between the Paddies and the Brits escalates out of control and he winds up in a Spanish prison. Enter Samantha, a beautiful British Intelligence agent. She makes Michael an offer he can't refuse: instead of extradition to Mexico to serve time for a prison break, he can infiltrate an IRA sleeper cell in the United States. Thrust into the nightmare world of men known for their distinctive brands of torture and revenge, Michael crosses and double-crosses key players, narrowly escapes his own lies, loses his only ally, and falls for the daughter of his enemy.

Don't miss these other noir thrillers in the Michael Forsythe series: Dead I Well May Be (Unabridged) and The Bloomsday Dead (Unabridged).

    "diegovela"

    The pleasure, although gorey and graphic, will be all yours.
    Reader plus writer never disappoint.
    Each book in the the series is a stand slone masterpiece for the genre.
    It is best to ready them in order as if they were a trilogy.
    But each book has a brutal charm of its own.

    "A Great Follow up to Dead I Well May Be"

    Another terrific book from McKinty to follow up "Dead I Well May Be".

    I would definitely recommend reading the first before this one.

    The language and violence is strong, but it fits the story perfectly. If you don't like f-bombs or all other creative , and often comical, form of swearing, stay away.

    Overall, the story fell a little short of the first book, but not far. High reommendations on this one, and I will definitely be picking up the next in the anticipated character series.

    "Great Book"

    I had to go straight to my office to comment on this book when I finished it. It is contains a mesmerizing cast of characters that keep the reader holding on until the very end. Adrian McKinty did a great job writing this book, and Gerard Doyle (narrator) keeps you hanging on with breathless anticipation. I look forward to more titles from McKinty.

    "Another masterpiece for unabridged listening!"

    I truly enjoy gritty fare like this, and for me the combination of Adrian McGinty's precise prose and Gerard Doyle's flawless narration is sublime. I mistakenly listened to "The Dead Yard" before hearing "Dead I Well May Be", to which it is a sequel, but McGinty's complete, complex talent for storytelling make this book stand easily alone, although I'm eager to read the previous book now. I had earlier read "Hidden River", and I connected better with the protagonist in that book, but "Dead Yard" was a great and powerful thriller with edge-of-your-seat moments that are rarely delivered so well in audio format. A wonderful experience; highly recommended to all fans of political thrillers, action novels, character studies and unabridged, literary fiction.

    "INTELLIGENT, INTERESTING, AND BRUTAL"

    I enjoyed this book very much. Maybe it was partly the Irish accent, but it really seemed to take you into another world. It starts off interesting, and ends up exciting. The reader was fantastic. I will probably pick up the author's earlier works. I think it deserves four and a half stars.
