Description
Information
Joseph O'Neill's grandfathers - one Irish‚ one Turkish - were both imprisoned during the Second World War. The Irish grandfather‚ a handsome rogue from a family of small farmers‚ was an active member of the IRA and was interned with hundreds of his comrades. O'Neill's other grandfather‚ a hotelier from a tiny and threatened Turkish Christian minority‚ was imprisoned by the British in Palestine‚ on suspicion of being a spy.

At the age of thirty Joseph O'Neill set out to uncover his grandfather's stories‚ what emerges is a narrative of two families and two charismatic but flawed men - it is a story of murder‚ espionage‚ paranoia and fear‚ of memories of violence and of fierce commitments to political causes.
