Abstract:

Garda Inspector Benedict Devlin is summoned to a burning barn and finds the remains of a local drug dealer. And when it becomes clear that his death was no accident, suspicion falls on a local vigilante group: former paramilitaries called The Rising. Meanwhile, Devlin's former colleague's teenage son has gone missing during a seaside camping trip. Devlin is relieved when the boy's mother, Caroline Williams, receives a text message from her son's phone, but is mystified when a body is washed up on a nearby beach. When another drug dealer is killed, Devlin realizes this is not just civic-minded vigilantism. But a personal crisis strikes at the heart of Ben's own family, and he's forced to confront the compromises his career has forced upon him ...
