The Dead Yard

Adrian McKinty
AUD $19.99

Forsythe is coerced into going undercover in a dissident Irish American republican cell in the second of the Dead Trilogy.

It's been five years since Michael Forsythe slaughtered Darkey White and his crew of thugs in Harlem. Five years spent in the Witness Protection Program with a price on his head and not much to do with his days. Allowed to take a holiday at last, Michael heads to Spain, but he's arrested after a football riot between Irish and Brits and brought to a Spanish prison. Enter British intelligence agent Samantha Caudwell, who offers Michael a deal: spend ten years in jail under new riot laws, or go on a special assignment to infiltrate an IRA sleeper cell in New England.

As The Dead Yard unfolds, Michael insinuates himself into the terror cell's inner circle. He crosses and double-crosses, escapes his own lies by a hair's breadth, falls in love, kills, and kills, and kills again.
