Hired to find the missing son of retired political activist Moira Doherty, Dan Starkey knows his new case is going to be challenging. Billy 'the Bear' Doherty, a criminal with a nasty drug habit, isn't an easy man to find - his mum is convinced he's been murdered. But when Moira herself is killed, Dan finds himself in the middle of a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Good lines in a bit of an outrageous plot
Dan Starkey - Lovable Witty Irish Folk Hero
This is the latest in the Dan Starkey series which continues the hilarious, dark and religious adventures of an independent journalist/detective loser hero who gets into trouble with his witty worldview confronting a dangerous world. With ill considered courage and wise cracks, Dan Starkey survives to live another day.
In a world that has been feminized by political correctness beyond recognition, it is refreshing to listen to a novel full of dark masculine comedy. If Romance novels cater to women, Dan Starkey novels are a gift to men. I recommend starting with the first novel. "Divorcing Jack". There is a formula to the books that are similar to an AC/DC song, but for the same reason I come back for more. .
Adam Moore verbalizes Dan Starkey perfectly.
