Irish detective Mike Mulcahy returns in this suspenseful follow-up to the highly acclaimed international bestseller The Priest--and now he's hot on the trail of an international drugs gang.

One year later, DI Mike Mulcahy is exactly where he wants to be, coordinating international intelligence for Ireland's National Drugs Unit. But with the economy in meltdown and his department facing tough cutbacks, his dream job is in jeopardy. Then Mulcahy spots a possible link between the murder of a Dublin gangster in Spain and a massive shipment of cocaine abandoned off the south coast of Ireland. Could this be the break he's been praying for? Meanwhile, reporter Siobhan Fallon is still recovering from her ordeal at the hands of a sadistic killer. Work is her only refuge, and while she's an emotional basket case, her nose for a story is as sharp as ever. When a suicide turns out to have a bizarre missing-person's angle, she's convinced there is something darker to it. But with a vital piece of evidence beyond her grasp, she has to turn to Mulcahy for help. Mulcahy and Fallon have no idea what deadly ground they're setting out on together, or that their journey will lead them on a twisted trail of terror to the rocky shores and windswept hills of West Cork and a blood-drenched showdown with a remorseless killer.

This is an intricately plotted police procedural set in Ireland with an engaging "hero", cop Mike Mulcahy. The relationships between he and his team form the heart of the story as they try to figure out a complicated drug smuggling ring as the bodies pile up. He has a past relationship with a reporter, Siobhan Fallon (see the previous book) & she again becomes involved as a story she is chasing intersects with his investigation. There are some leaps of faith required as it's hard to believe any cop would allow a reporter so close to a case & her character is a bit annoying at times as she makes some truly dumb decisions while being portrayed as a smart, savvy woman. As in the last book, her involvement almost causes Mike to lose his job & you'd think he would start to see he should avoid her like the plague.
