An exciting thriller filled with adventure and romance, set in Ireland and Europe just prior to World War Two.

Dublin, 27 March, 1937. On the far edge of Europe, the Irish Free State is rife with rumours of a new European war, and fascists and republicans are at each other's throats. Holland, an idealistic young IRA recruit, meets his commandant and is offered the strange assignment to guard and spy on a sinister Hungarian businessman and his secretary Sabine - a Jewish refugee.

The mission tests Holland's loyalties and his idealism to the utmost, and ends with a sordid shooting match in a field in England. As events spiral out of his control, Holland finds himself fleeing with Sabine into the depths of the Irish countryside, where treacherous swamps and dense woods protect them from their pursuers. An intense love affair between two young people from vastly different worlds suddenly becomes possible.

But Holland's closest friend in the Movement knows his mind too well, and seeks him out, leading to a confrontation as fateful and tragic as an Irish myth.
