The second installment of the DS O'Neill series, from one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction
Belfast, 2am, Tomb Street. A young man lies dead in an alley. Cracked ribs, broken jaw, fractured skull. With the Celtic Tiger purring and the Troubles in their death throes, Detective Sergeant John O'Neill is called to investigate. Meanwhile O'Neill's partner, DI Jack Ward, a veteran troubles detective, is receiving death threats from an unknown source...
When Sorrows Come is a brutal expose of the criminal underworld in the new Northern Ireland, a place where the dead are not all created equal.
