Red Island by Martin MacDermot @MartinMacDermot

Red Island

"It was a drug deal gone wrong. It was a kidnapping gone wrong. It was the IRA, Provisional or Continuity, Real or unreal, whatever you're having yourself. It was a jealous husband. It was a jilted girl friend. It was a gay murder-suicide pact gone wrong. Or only half right.
It was bullshit and horse manure, every bit of it. Jesus, it was only a matter of time before someone blamed it on the banks.
Maybe that I could believe."

They say you should never go back. Nobody told Duggan.

More than twenty years after leaving Ireland for New York, John Duggan returns to the north Dublin seaside town of Skerries, haunted by a terrible secret and seeking a second chance. But when a young man is found brutally murdered on Red Island, Duggan finds himself drawn into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse.

It is a game that could cost him his last chance at redemption - and maybe even his life.
