|A story of love, loss and striving for redemption. Joe, awkward and indecisive, is reared in the heart of West Belfast, roaming the streets with his wee pal Ramie. All around the city was smouldering ready to break into a conflagration. As teenagers playing football, pursuing girls but looming closer was the shadow of Northern Ireland’s “Troubles.”

Yet for George McNeill 39, divorced, living alone in Belfast such an experience was unlikely. As the classic safe pair of hands, a person of fixed habits to the point of obsessiveness, boring but reliable, he flew under the radar. Contented, George was a man who avoided confrontations, risks, responsibilities, even relationships. True he had dreams of accomplishing great deeds and gaining rewards although he thought of these as harmless fantasies.
His entire existence was turned upside down in a matter of minutes when he came upon a grizzly execution from a drug deal that has gone wrong. In a daze and as if by reflex he removed the cash proceeds. At first, George remained unaware of more sinister elements who kept him under surveillance with their ultimate intention to bring him to account for his one brief but significant error of judgement. He was blind to the many coincidences which added to the complexity as two police forces and a European drug cartel closed in.

A final conclave where many of them were in the same place at the same time would be too awful to contemplate.
