World Without End, Amen

(1973)
A novel by

 
Adrift in New York, an alcoholic cop searches for meaning in his life by revisiting his past

The department has taken away Dermot Davey's gun. After countless incidents of excessive force and on-the-job drunkenness, and one harrowing moment where he nearly killed a civilian, the New York Police Department has dumped him on the "Bow and Arrow Squad" - the home for alcoholic cops unfit to carry firearms. Without his pistol, Dermot feels like he's hardly a cop. As his marriage tanks, Dermot drinks, and considers ending it all. But everything changes when he learns about his dad.

Dermot's father disappeared when he was a child, leaving Dermot's mother to raise him alone. Now Dermot hears word that his old man has surfaced in Ulster, the heart of the increasingly bloody Irish Troubles. Hoping to find redemption, he travels to Ireland to meet his father. What he finds is a war-torn, deadly place - a brutish, ugly city that is nevertheless no uglier than the darkness inside his own soul.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Jimmy Breslin including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
