A mysterious old man kidnaps Sersha, a young, headstrong, Irish girl, from the streets of Galway and tries to convince her that her life’s destiny is tied to a seemingly random cave in the Scottish highlands.

But with half of the Irish criminal underworld violently on their trail, Sersha, struggles back and forth with the old man’s real identity and far fetched intentions to whether he truly is genuine in his wild and fantastical beliefs. Or is he just some kind of mad, demented, old fool, having a mental breakdown in his twilight years.

A dramatic and thrilling, witty, action packed mystery, that will keep you guessing, right up until the breathtaking, finale.


Okay. Do you want to know me real name? Or the name of the man whose body I’ve taken?

Firstly, thank you to the author for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review! I really much appreciate that.

I’m really not sure what I can say without spoiling the story too much for someone who hasn’t read this one! But I’ll try my best to leave out anything major.

Oh this book was good, okay? Especially I loved the fact that through the whole story you keep guessing that who the heck the old man is? What is really going on in here? Though I had my suspicions about that, I almost all the time came back to whatever the old man had told.
It was a tad bit confusing at the start of the book where we are told about a boy and his father, playing at the beach and the boy wants to see it one more time before they leave for good. After that starts the story of the old man’s adventure with kidnapped Sersha. But everything has it’s meaning and everything comes to a closure at some point. It all starts making sense.

After finishing I was left in the realization that I actually was told everything I needed to know but I just kept ignoring it all, what a punch of nonsense! Except that it wasn’t. This book is so well written, it keeps you interested through the whole story. And it has some heartbreaking moments too! It’s not all just frightening kidnapping.
I truly recommend everyone who loves a good thriller to read this book.
