About this book
Guardian & Observer reviews
The sequel to "A Star Called Henry" in the epic trilogy about Henry Smart and the making of modern Ireland. Picking up where the previous book left off, Henry is in America in 1924, a time of Prohibition, the mob and Louis Armstrong. "This really is a masterpiece" "Irish Times"
It's 1924, and New York is the centre of the universe. Henry Smart, on the run from Dublin, falls on his feet. He is a handsome man with a sandwich board, behind that he stashes hooch for the speakeasies of the Lower East Side. He catches the attention of the mobsters who run the district and soon there are eyes on his back and men in the shadows.
