The Defender

The Defender

Guns, violence, mob rule or defending the cause? We all have choices. Or do we? Who would choose blood, sacrifice and exile? At the height of the Troubles in Northern Ireland Ian’s dad did. He thought he was fighting for a cause, for his people. But the price was too high – after the murder of his sister’s husband and his own wife’s death, he’s paying for trying to get out. Somewhere along the line the cause got blurred by organised crime and revenge, and all it’s left is a bitter taste. He’s still a target, still a victim. Now he faces a lifetime of running with nowhere to go and constantly putting at risk the son he loves.

This page turner tackles a controversial topic head-on and makes powerful and memorable reading.
