A LAND WITHOUT WOLVES

HISTORICAL MUSINGS IN 18th CENTURY IRELAND

In the midst of rebellion are legends wrought, and Mogue Trench knows of a tale never told. What better time to relay it than as the rope awaits.

The Highwayman Joseph Mac Tíre knows of hardship - at the hands of Redcoats and Republicans alike - so Ireland's political struggle has less appeal than mentoring an orphan in the ways of the underworld.

Yet the world has a way of catching up to men whose hearts know only darkness - men who hunt, and kill, and howl in rage.

But sooner or later, they howl no more.

Claire Hennessy, Author of Like Other Girls

...vividly and poetically evokes the strange and contradictory world of late 18th-century Ireland...delving into a criminal underworld of thievery, brothels and secret societies alongside philosophical and political musings...highly attuned to its historical context and its understanding of what was possible, ‘thinkable’, at the time.
