John Blaine is a private detective who works Dublin's mean streets. He is tough, talented and smart, but always unlucky in love. His wife has just left him, and he's sad and sorry. Now, hired to bring home a stray daughter of the rich, he takes the girl's side against her powerful father, and suffers for it. Written by a critic, journalist and crime fiction reviewer for the Irish Times, this short novel is gripping, funny and stripped to the bone. Sad Song packs a punch like a fist in a velvet glove... The Open Door Series: Originally designed to promote adult literacy in Ireland, these original stories from best-loved authors and new voices showcase some of our best writing in short fiction.
