Down Among the Dead free pdf Some lies we live. Some truths we allow to die. London, 2008. An old man, Michael, sees out his final days sustained by Guinness and talk of the old country. But some memories won't go quietly to the grave. Some mistakes are not erased by time. And no matter how hard he tries to forget, there's always someone trying to dig up the skeletons of the past. Belfast, 1988. The height of the Troubles. Michael is a bagman, a messenger, a go-between, called on to perform one last little job for the IRA. After that, perhaps he can start to patch his life back together. After that, perhaps he can build a future for himself and his family. Just one last job... Down Among the Dead is a story of trouble and the Troubles, and a violent collision of past and present in the life of one man. 'Steve Finbow has done a brilliant job... This is sharp and bold writing that is populated with punchy dialogue and crisply drawn characters. It's a voice that is at once sympathetic and pathetic and it's one that's very easy to spend time with. Very highly recommended.' - Nigel Bird (author of Smoke and Southsiders) 'The brilliantly breathless, brutal and lyrical story of a retired IRA gunman facing up to his past.' - Paul D Brazill (author of Guns of Brixton and A Case of Noir)
