Tense psychological mystery set in London
Location(s): Dublin, Kilkenny
Genre(s): Crime, Fiction
Contemporary Irish crime fiction set in Dublin and Kilkenny.
Peril is the story of Gerard Mayes, an anti-hero. Men want to be him, women want to redeem him. Ger’s story is fiction, but his origins are real – everyday folk living and working in a Dublin city center wracked with organized begging, drug addicts and violent crime. It’s not all leprechauns and shillelaghs in Ireland.
Ger is a slacker. A consumer. He thinks life owes him, takes what he can and goes with
the flow. His perspective on life, like that of another famous slacker The Big Lebowski, is sometimes humorous, but the story takes a noir turn when Ger kills a mugger and is held to account for it. All things move toward their end, of that you can be sure.
