The Killer Book 1: The Beginning

by Jack Elgos

Our anti-hero Darren McCann is a small, young guy. To survive the violent streets of 1970s Belfast he learns to fight, and he fights well. The Provisional Irish Republican Army are interested in him but, though he is of Catholic stock, he refuses to take sides in the troubles – until a family tragedy allies him with the republican cause.

After specialist training he becomes an efficient sniper and freedom fighter but it is one night, and one interrogation, which earn him a reputation as The Butcher of Belfast and pair him with his infamous knife, The Killer.

Following a particularly high profile sniper kill he is forced to take refuge in Spain where he becomes involved with E.T.A terrorists at a training camp deep in the Basque country. There, he takes part in a daring raid and forms strong alliances with his new brethren, the ETA freedom fighters.

When the Provos, and an old friend, call him back into action he performs his duty, but a moment of doubt makes him realise his home in Ireland has gone, now he belongs in the hills of Spain.

McCann knows he will always fight against the establishment, but one British Government espionage agent has other ideas.

A blue straggler is a star that has an anomalous blue color and appears to be disconnected from those stars that surround it. But this is not a story about astronomy.

So she packs up her Honda and heads out of Texas in search of herself and answers to secrets from her great-grandmother’s past.
