    Belfast, 1988. A man is found dead, killed with a bolt from a crossbow in front of his house. This is no hunting accident.

Hunted by forces unknown, threatened by Internal Affairs, and with his relationship on the rocks, Duffy will need all his wits to get out of this investigation in one piece.

His beautiful new wife is pregnant, his upstart airline is undercutting the competition and moving from strength to strength, his diversification into the casino business in Macau has been successful, and his fabulous Art Deco house on an Irish cliff top has just been featured in Architectural Digest. But then, for some reason, his ex-wife Rachel doesn’t keep her side of the custody agreement and vanishes off the face of the earth with Richard’s two daughters. Richard hires Killian, a formidable ex-enforcer for the IRA, to track her down before Rachel, a recovering drug addict, harms herself or the girls.

    Belfast 1988: Ein Mann wird mit einem Pfeil im Rücken tot aufgefunden. Es waren wohl kaum Indianer, und auch Robin Hood dürfte als Täter nicht in Frage kommen. Und da das Opfer eh nur ein Drogendealer war, könnte man sein kurioses Dahinscheiden ruhigen Gewissens zu den Akten legen. Doch Inspector Sean Duffy tut sich schwer damit, Morde zu den Akten zu legen - auch wenn seine Vorgesetzten ihn dazu drängen und der Haussegen bei der jungen Familie Duffy gerade reichlich schief hängt. Und noch jemand möchte Duffy zum Aufgeben zwingen: Eines Nachts findet er sich im Wald wieder, wo drei bewaffnete, maskierte Gestalten ihn dazu zwingen, sein eigenes Grab auszuheben.
