In the Morning I’ll be Gone by Adrian McKinty

I’ve become a huge McKinty fan over the #COVID months.

This is book #3 in the Sean Duffy series.

In Belfast, September 1983, in the middle of The Troubles, Sergeant Sean Duffy, one of the few Catholics in the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC), is drummed out of the RUC on trumped up charges.

At the same time, Dermot McCann, an IRA master bomber and ex-schoolmate of Duffy’s escapes from the Maze prison and becomes a prime target for British Intelligence.

MI5 drags Duffy out of his drunken retirement to track down McCann.

Here’s a 2015 interview with the author. Quite a character. Roller coaster of a life.

He didn’t really get famous until his 2020 book The Chain.
