120. Evil for Evil
Rated 4.5 Stars
Once again I am reading a series out of order but I don't think order is all that important in mysteries where the stories stand pretty much alone. I will definitely be reading more of these books.
Billy Boyle is sent to Northern Ireland, at the request of the British government, to investigate links between the Irish Republican Army and the Germans. Automatic weapons have been stolen from a U.S. Army base, and an IRA man has been found dead, shot in the head and left with a pound note in his hand; the mark of the informer. Billy is forced to confront not only danger from German agents, IRA killers and Unionist thugs, but also his own family history, which reaches back generations to the starvation days of the Irish Potato Blight.
