Buffalo is a town that should have scaled the great heady heights and become THE place to live and make your fortune. But that time never came for Buffalo. Now it is a place of two divides: the Irish (aka ‘The County’) and the rest of Buffalo. When Jimmy Ryan is found mutilated in a sacred place the Irish populace closes ranks.
Absalom Kearney is one of those anomalies: neither an outsider nor an insider. She simply is. Despite being adopted and brought up by her father, John Kearney, the local police hero who took her in after her drug addicted mother died Abbie has always been recognised as Kearney’s daughter but never as ‘one of Irish community’.
Now someone is killing notable personalities within that close community and they have closed ranks and are conducting their own investigation to find the killer. But Abbie Kearney is very much like her ex-policeman father and failure to catch this maniac is not an option. As more bodies are discovered, Abbie discovers that the truth lies many decades ago when she was a baby and is directly connected with a secret club ‘Clan na Gael’ and soon Abbie finds that all that is happening is about to strike very close to home.
