Desmond Doherty - Sins of the Fathers

Detective Jon Valberg is back, and the streets of Derry have never been more dangerous. Sins of the Fathers finds Valberg and company on the hunt for a vengeful assassin who is targeting members of the criminal justice system. Police, lawyers, judges—no one is safe. But Valberg will soon learn that these crimes are more than just revenge, they’re personal. This is the second novel in Desmond Doherty’s excellent series, an author who Brian McGilloway calles “a brooding, bloody and brilliant new voice in Irish crime writing.”
