For DI Carl McCadden, uncovering the truth can be murder…
Exactly what was Billy Power – machinist at the plastics factory, keeper of greyhounds and Jack the Lad about Waterford – involved in? And why did he have to die?
Unshaven, unorthodox and unpopular with his superiors, DI Carl McCadden finds straight answers about Power – or anything else – hard to come by.
And as McCadden searches for the truth through the bleak and dilapidated housing estates, the bars and the dog track of Waterford, Byzantine business machinations and self-righteous politicking muddy the waters . . .
