Publisher's Summary

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.

Not as good as the Bishop series

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I loved the Bishop goes books, but this book was not worth the price or my time. The story line and the characters had lots of potential but they never got close to their potential.

Would you ever listen to anything by Andrew M. Greeley again?

yes.
