Publisher's Summary

In this exciting sequel to the acclaimed Dead I Well May Be, the mercenary Michael Forsythe is forced to infiltrate an Irish terrorist cell, confronting murder, mayhem, and the prospect of his own execution.

Michael is on holiday in Spain when a soccer riot between the Paddies and the Brits escalates out of control and he winds up in a Spanish prison. Enter Samantha, a beautiful British Intelligence agent. She makes Michael an offer he can't refuse: instead of extradition to Mexico to serve time for a prison break, he can infiltrate an IRA sleeper cell in the United States. Thrust into the nightmare world of men known for their distinctive brands of torture and revenge, Michael crosses and double-crosses key players, narrowly escapes his own lies, loses his only ally, and falls for the daughter of his enemy.

Don't miss these other noir thrillers in the Michael Forsythe series: Dead I Well May Be (Unabridged) and The Bloomsday Dead (Unabridged).

Loved it - another great book by him

Love the accents, the storyline and excellent characters. I loved the Sean Duffy books and now these.. Only one to go - what a shame!

I had to keep working in the garden till the end.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Dead Yard to be better than the print version?

I have not read the book but the narration is so good I don't think the book could be better.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dead Yard?

The final scenes at the Dead Yard itself were riveting. Had to listen right to the end. Can't wait to read the third book in the series now.

Have you listened to any of Gerard Doyle’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is my sixth Gerard Doyle book performance.. They are all excellent and this is up with them all.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was never a dull moment.

Any additional comments?

A most enjoyable book. You have to be prepared for a bit of swearing and violence of course.
