When a controversial US diplomat is attacked during the opening of a Donegal gold mine, Garda Inspector Benedict Devlin is disciplined for the lapse in security.
The gunman turns out to be a young environmentalist - related to an old friend of Devlin's.
Within days, the killing of an illegal immigrant near the Irish border leads Devlin to a vicious people-smuggling ring.
Then Bradley himself is found dead near the mine and Devlin begins to suspect that the business is a front for something far more sinister than mere mining.
Bleed a River Deep is the new novel from one of the most acclaimed young crime-writers around, a labyrinthine tale of big business, the new Europe, and the dispossessed.
World politics, industry and organised crime collide in McGilloway's most accomplished, most gripping, and most powerful novel yet.
