Product Details


“The best of Doyle’s trilogy . . . he has avoided crowd-pleasing formulas to create an original and amusing octogenarian double agent, composing a thoughtful book about a sometimes thoughtless political process.”
–The New York Times Book Review

“Entertaining . . . A purposeful, funny smackdown of popular culture’s contribution to the mythology of Irish nationalism.”
–Los Angeles Times 

“The story of Henry’s reintegration into a much changed Ireland is thoroughly absorbing. . . . The plot never stops zipping, but, as the title suggests, there’s a darker picture.”
–The New Yorker
