Abstract:

Frankie Crowe is not one of the great criminal masterminds. A small time thug, he thinks -- to the extent he can -- that kidnapping one of Dublin's newly rich businessmen just may be the low risk fast track to the status and money he knows he deserves. When the local crime boss refuses him permission to make the snatch, he shoots the boss and commences with his plan -- such as it is. After a somewhat haphazard selection, this crew of casually vicious miscreants kidnaps the wife of a moderately prosperous lawyer rather than the spouse of the wealthy banker Frankie thought he had chosen. From that point forward, no one from Inspector John Grace to that pillar of Dublin gangland Jo-Jo Mackendrick can predict the next twist in a scheme that has gone from wrong to bad to worse.
