Summary:

"Autumn, 1943: Fifty Browning Automatic Rifles and thousands of rounds of ammunition have been stolen from a US Army base in Northern Ireland. A few miles from the depot, the body of a known IRA man has been found with a bullet in the head and a pound note in his hand--the mark of an informer. Fearing a German-sponsored IRA uprising, General Eisenhower, Billy's uncle by marriage, sends him to recover the weapons before more damage is done. But with family ties to the Republican cause, Billy struggles to remain impartial to the Catholic-Protestant divide, especially as the bodies accumulate." --provided by publisher.
