Dan Starkey, hero of 'Divorcing Jack', is back in an entirely wonderful adventure in America.
Smooth operator Geordie McClean has succeeded in setting up a gigantic payday (for all concerned) by arranging a St Patrick's Day fight in New York between his hopeless Irish heavyweight champ Fat Boy McMaster and Mike Tyson. Belfast journalist Dan Starkey is hired to write the book of the whole affair.
Dan is trying to persuade his wife Patricia to give their marriage another go, but he has not succeeded before boarding the plane with McMaster and his deeply suspect entourage. If he thought he was leaving the sectarian conflict of his homeland behind him, Starkey is quite mistaken and McClean's outfit soon falls prey to all the old enmities, while developing an uncanny power to outrage plenty of other interest groups at the same time.
