The dark, gripping thriller set in the Dublin underworld of hitmen, big business and government corruption.The worlds of business, politics and crime collide when two men with the same name, from the same family, die on the same night - one death is a gangland murder, the other, apparently, a road accident. Was it a coincidence? That's the official version of events. But then a family member, Gina Rafferty, starts asking questions. Devastated by her loss, Gina's grief is tempered, and increasingly fuelled, by anger. The more she hears that it was all a coincidence - that gangland violence is commonplace; that people die on our roads every day of the week - the less she's prepared to accept it. Told repeatedly that she should stop asking questions, she becomes more determined than ever to establish a connection between the two deaths - and in doing so she embarks on a path that will push certain powerful people to their limits.
