Ireland in 1928 was a place of conflicted loyalty, changing politics and intense subterfuge.

When Seán Harling shot and killed Timothy Coughlan, a known IRA member, in the conflicted Ireland of 1928, he was officially cleared of all charges.

But his former friends in the Republican movement were suspicious and he was forced to flee the country.

This scandal, added to his suspected double agent status in the Irish Civil War, meant that his family suffered from years of rumors.

After the Fianna Fáil gained power in the 1930s Harling returned to wage a campaign to have his War of Independence efforts acknowledged and his work rewarded by a pension as had many of his former colleagues, but the legacy of the Coughlan killing frustrated his efforts.

""This book is filled with the adventurous and entertaining stories of Sean Harling."" Irish American News.
