Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Crime & mystery

GHOST TOWN is a gripping debut thriller from leading journalist and commentator Michael Clifford.

A Dublin gangland king pin on the chase. A corrupt property mogul on the run. A hungry crime journalist determined to put his destroyed career back on track. And the return of the 'Dancer' - Joshua Molloy, smalltime Dublin ex-con, recently out of prison, off the booze, determined to stay on the straight and narrow.

When Molloy hires Noelle Higgins, a solicitor and boomtime wife with a crumbling personal life, to help find his young son both are soon drawn into a web of treachery and violence, where Ireland's criminal underworld and fallen elite fight it out to lay claim to what's left from the crash: Euro 3 million in cash, in a bag, buried somewhere in the depths of rural Ireland.

From Dublin to Spain and finally a debris-strewn ghost estate in Kerry, GHOST TOWN is the fast-paced and tightly written debut thriller by leading Irish journalist and commentator Michael Clifford.
