‘Daniel O’Connell is in deadly danger and you must be the secret spy from Drumshee,’ says Mary Ann to her brother Ronan. ‘You don’t talk much, so no one will notice you.’
Sharp-eyed and intelligent, Ronan watches and listens.
But Mary Ann doesn’t realise that the task she has given her crippled and almost wordless brother will put his life in deadly danger.
Plunge into the dark events of 1828. Daniel O’Connell is fighting for a new way of life for the Irish people, but there are enemies on every side. Can Ronan save this Irish hero from an evil assassin?
