Overview

The triumphant conclusion to the trilogy that began with A Star Called Henry.

Henry Smart is back. It is 1946, and Henry has crawled into the desert of Utah’s Monument Valley to die. He’s stumbled onto a film set though, and ends up in Hollywood collaborating with John Ford on a script based on his life. Eventually, Henry finds himself back in Ireland, where he becomes a custodian, and meets up with a woman who may or may not be his long-lost wife. After being injured in a political bombing in Dublin, the secret of his rebel past comes out, and Henry is a national hero. Or are his troubles just beginning? Raucous, colorful, and epic, The Dead Republic is the magnificent final act in the life of one of Doyle’s most unforgettable characters.
