Product description

Review

A meticulously researched historical thriller... with strong, multifaceted [characters] and tight plotting. I will impatiently await the sequel. -- Patrick Taylor

The Devil's Half-Mile terrified me. Paddy Hirsch's vivid story of New York in 1799 shows just how vulnerable our newborn nation was to greedy men with no moral centers. Young Irish-American Justice Flanagan manages to expose the corruption of Wall Street and misdeeds of government officials but it's a close thing. Impossible not to think of parallels to today and hope there are some contemporary Justice Flanagans at work. Powerful. ― Mary Pat Kelly, filmmaker and best-selling author of Galway Bay and Of Irish Blood

A tense, violent and atmospheric crime thriller set in 1799 when the white-collar criminals carried switchblades and human lives were traded like sacks of grain. ― Michael Robotham, award-winning author of LIFE OR DEATH

Fascinating and well drawn. ― The Times

A page-turning historical thriller... A perfect holiday read. ― Irish Independent

About the Author

Paddy Hirsch was expansively (and expensively) educated in Dublin and Belfast. Had he managed to get in Trinity College, all might have been different, but instead he took a place at the University of Warwick, where he played rugby and founded the University's Irish Society. He started his journalism career in Hong Kong after a short stint in the military, and spent the next few years working in news in East and Southeast Asia, and Eastern Europe. From there to America, where he covered various aspects of Wall Street's carry-on for a variety of American and European news outlets. He lives in Los Angeles now, but makes frequent trips back across the Atlantic to fill up on good stout and proper bacon. And to see family, of course.
