Third novel by this journalist (who is also a poet, librettist, and author of children's books) whose first book, "Keep on Running," was the 1980 David Higham Award winner for best first novel. In this tale of the "Troubles," the protagonist, Michael Sullivan, becomes obsessed with the legend of the Black Irishman, "the wildest of the wild boys, the one the girls can't resist and the men have to follow. More and more it dominates his life. It drives him into a morass of modern intrigue and treachery in which he creates his own legend. It also makes him an uncomfortable friend and a dangerous adversary. Inevitably Michael becomes the quarry in a gripping and terrifying hunt by a strangely diverse pack which finds him unexpectedly hard to destroy." . (Inventory #: 13003)
