It’s 1996 and Northern Ireland have endured the political violence of the Troubles for twenty years. The RUC police force have fought, been killed, and only some have made it to the other side.
Twenty years later, having survived the Troubles, retired RUC officer McCallan is killed in a gas explosion in his caravan. Jack MCallan has inherited a deadly key to his father’s past and begins to uncover the sinister truth about his death, but stumbles across a conspiracy of daring and awesome greed . . .
Keith Baker’s grit and dry humour guide us through this thriller on the edge of our seats. His brilliant debut Inheritance will make you second guess everything you thought you knew.
‘Keith Baker's debut novel is a breathtaking exception. He comes racing out of the traps with a book that is possibly the best of its kind to be written so far about the North.’ The Irish Times.
