From the Back Cover:

Bicycling journalist Miller is exiled from his big-city paper to small-town Crossmaheart. There, he is to replace another reporter, Jamie Milburn, who has disappeared – to no one's great surprise, since Crossmaheart is a notoriously fatal place in which to ask questions.

Miller aims to keep his head down, but as soon as he gets involved with Jamie's girlfriend Marie, that plan, and much else besides, begins to fall apart.

Darkly funny, romantic, disturbing and suspenseful, 'Cycle of Violence' is the brilliant new novel from the author of the bestselling 'Divorcing Jack'.

"An Ulster Carl Hiaasen"

'Divorcing Jack:'

"A joy from start to finish…Witty, fast-paced and throbbing with menace, 'Divorcing Jack' reads like 'The Thirty-Nine Steps' rewritten for the '90s by Roddy Doyle"

"Will do for Belfast and South Armagh what Bram Stoker did for Transylvania"

"As sharp as a pint of snake-bite…manages to say more about the Troubles in 280 vivid pages than reams of earnest reportage ever could"
