Overview

A ex-cop names his poison. For former San  Francisco cop Dismas Hardy, Guinness Stout with Bass Ale  is the drink of choice, but a straight Irish  whiskey will do anytime. The news of young Eddie  Cochran’s death calls for a double. The cops think  it’s suicide, but even to a lapsed Catholic like  Hardy, it sounds wrong. Doubts lead him back into the  heart of the Little Shamrock, into memories of  warm kitchens, cold churches, and sins unforgetten.  Blood ties still bind Eddie’s family–his  beautiful mother, his pregnant widow, his hot-tempered  brothers, his compassionate priest. But old secrets  and raw angers gnaw at the fabric of their lives.  And Hardy’s insticts warn him-someone else is  going to die.

Praise

"An intricate  mystery that is so on-target in its portrayal of Irish  Catholics in America in general and in San Francisco  in particular that it transcends the  genre."–Dick Lochte, author of Running  Dog.

"Polished and fast-paced .  . . keep you riveted until the convincing but  supersede finale."–Nikolae Gerstner, author of  Dark Veil and co-author of  Finders Keepers
