Readers who love “thrillers with heart” will find everything they’re looking for in this award-winning book – the first in a new suspense series.
Meet Conor McBride. He’s even more interesting than the trouble he gets into.
A talented Irish musician reluctantly reinvents himself, disappearing into an undercover identity to search for the man who ruined his career: his own brother.
On a journey from the west of Ireland to the tumultuous city of Mumbai, Conor McBride’s only goal is to redeem the brother who betrayed him.
