In a village seven miles north of Dublin, a group of children find the body of a man concealed in the ramshackle grandstand of a derelict racecourse. He is clad in mosscolored trousers and without identification. Dublin Garda Sergeant Sean Lynch has no more clue to the dead man's identity than the children do-and speculation among the residents of Balgriffin runs from the personal to the political: was he a drug peddler, a bookie, a gangster? Or is this a crime linked to the troubles in 'Northern Ireland, connected to a family who has recently moved to the village from Belfast?
