British spies have infiltrated the United Brotherhood, to quash another Irish rebellion. When one of the spies turns up dead in a Chicago sewer, police detective Daniel Coughlin is swept up in a power struggle between warring factions of the Irish nationalists, a fight that could see him hanged for a murder he did not commit. If his political clout does not come through for him, he is a dead man. Drawn from court records and historical archives of the infamous Cronin murder trials of 1889 and 1893, THE KING OF THE IRISH is a gripping tale of political chicanery, power and greed, set in a city long known for dirty politics and crooked politicians.
