In the Morning I'll Be Gone
A Sean Duffy Mystery by Adrian McKinty
Review: Busted from Detective Inspector to Sergeant — and not even Detective Sergeant — Sean Duffy is barely hanging on to his job with the Carrickfergus RUC when he's falsely accused of a hit-and-run while on duty. His superiors offer him a choice: resign with what little pension he's accumulated or be dragged through an official hearing where he'll certainly be fired with no future benefits. He resigns but is soon contacted by British intelligence: they need his help in locating an old schoolmate, one Dermot McCann, who recently escaped from prison, fled to Libya, and is rumored to be back in Ireland planning an attack on the Prime Minister. Duffy refuses until he's offered something he cannot refuse: his former rank as Detective Inspector and the full backing of the British government in carrying out his investigation. But once he's back on the job, he finds — as he fully expected — that no one will talk to him … except the mother of a young woman who died while closing up the bar her family owned, an incident that the police have ruled an accident but she is sure was murder, in In the Morning I'll Be Gone, the third and final book in the "Troubles Trilogy" by Adrian McKinty.
