Product Description

Review

'Monaghan is at his best when he veers … into Bernard Cornwell territory. His descriptions of action are lucid and exciting, evoking the tension of the cat-and-mouse manoeuvres of snipers, and simplifying the chaos of small-scale skirmishes … Entertaining.' --The Sunday Times Ireland

'An impressive achievement . . . a cleanly written, well paced and confident narrative . . . a skilfully told historical saga' --Irish Independent

'In the final part of Alan Monaghan s trilogy, Dubliner Stephen Ryan, who served as an officer in the British army during the first world war, gets embroiled in the political tensions of Ireland in the early 1920 s while trying to protect his fiancée from a vicious enemy. As Stephen joins in the treaty in negotiations in London and becomes part of the new Free State, his brother Joe remains firmly on the other side, and political strife are intertwined in this accomplished novel.' --Irish Times 30 Great Summer Reads.

"Mr Monaghan is a talented stroyteller, and infuses a well-worn tale with frsh life...The clean, terse prose is masterful in setting the novel s breakneck pace, the vivid scenes keep the reader s attention, and, at times, the book truly captivates. The result is a neat closure to a highly successful saga, but suggests that there is so much more to come from a writer of considerable ambition." --Billy O Callaghan, Irish Examiner

Excellent Irish Civil war novel which really portrays the true concepts that broke family's apart, brother v brother. I would really recommend reading the whole Soldier's song trilogy.

The story is very gripping and the birth of a free nation in Ireland is good to see from the real irish side. No new nation building can be easy and characters bring it all to life.
