Book Description
Its 1920 and as the War of Independence rages in Ireland, ace schoolboy footballer Dan becomes a trusted messenger for rebel leader Michael Collins. But despite a promise to his cousin Molly to never fire a gun, he is pulled deeper into the struggle. Dan s activities draw the attention of a sinister British spy and he and Molly are forced to flee Dublin. On the run, they meet Flying Columns and as Cork burns narrowly escape death. But unknown to Dan, he holds the key to an evil plot to derail any chance for peace. And his enemy will stop at nothing to track him down. As the rebel Irish leaders try to reach a deal with the British government, Dan is forced into deadly games with his dangerous enemy. Will Dan and Molly save the day and can the leaders bring peace to Ireland?"
