The fourth and final title in Sheelagh Kelly’s bestselling ‘Feeney’ saga follows the story of Richard William Feeney – ‘Dickie’.

Supposedly dying a hero’s death in a tragic fire in 1874, Richard Feeney secretly escaped the flames and fled to America, where he prospered. Now, twenty-six years later, he is back in York in the bosom of his astonished family.

The year 1900 is about to fade... along with the life of Patrick Feeney, Dickie’s beloved father. Recriminations are temporarily forgotten, as the family reunites in grief. But the past has a way of catching up, and Dickie’s day of reckoning is just around the corner. His jaunty good looks and disregard for the law invariably land Dickie in trouble. Behind him lies a trail of chaos, and his long-suffering wife and family are burdened with the consequences. When Mr Rufforth of the Yorkshire Insurance Company recognizes Dickie as the son who supposedly died, he is faced with a trial and possible imprisonment. Meanwhile, Detective Chief Inspector Scholes Nettleton reopens his files on an unsolved double murder.
