Wild Decembers, Paperback


A novel of revenge and murder, reissued with superb new jacket When a young man arrives from Australia to claim his inheritance, he changes a small Irish town for ever.

Joseph Brennan sees Michael Bugler, the returned exile, as a threat. And for Breege, Joseph's younger sister, Bugler is an irresistible stranger to whose charms she must not succumb for fear of betraying her brother. A love-hate story on many levels, Wild Decembers explores the depth and darkness at the root of all ownership.

With a rich and comic cast of characters, this primal story is a complex and daring work, fixed in a time and place, yet imbued with the permanence of myth.
