Murder in the Monto 2022

by Tony O'Reilly | 08 June 2022
Paperback

In the days following the 1916 Dublin Rising, Christopher Flinter, a young Dubliner, deserts from the British army and returns home from Flanders to avenge the death of his younger brother. Caught in the act of revenge, he is imprisoned in Dublin Castle. There he meets Major Jonathan Byatt, a British secret service agent who gives him a unenviable choice: be shot for desertion or work undercover for the British forces.

Christopher’s mission is to infiltrate the Monto, the biggest red-light district in Europe where an American agent is at play. The agent, code-named Janus, has a darker side. He is also a killer who roams the alleyways of the Monto, terrorising the prostitutes who ply their trade there.

Intent on honouring his promise to Byatt, he wanders blindly through the dark heart of the Monto, searching for clues, aware that he himself may be the next target of the faceless and brilliant assassin he seeks.

As he seeks to uncover Janus, Christopher falls for the charms of Nell Conway, the adopted daughter of one of the district's most famous Madame’s.  With her help he tracks Janus down to his lair in the tunnels that run under the Monto. But who will emerge from the subterranean network alive?
