Paradise Beach, New Jersey. The perfect place for Dick O'Gorman and Billy Kilroy to smuggle ashore Cuban missiles to be used in the Irish Republican Army's war against England. Paradise Beach is an Irish American enclave, one that has no idea about the violent upheaval into which it will soon be thrown.
The greatest American general of the twentieth century wasn't Dwight Eisenhower or George Patton or Douglas MacArthur. The honor, according to New York Times bestselling historian Thomas Fleming, belongs to Matthew Ridgway, who led America's Eighth Army to victory in Korea. Here, in this short-form book, is his courageous story.
It is 1984. Irish Americans, preoccupied with a loss of political power in the cities, have little sympathy for Ireland and the IRA. This is especially true of Mick O'Day, an ex-marine whose moral failure in Vietnam haunts him still. It is a combustible mix, as a British secret agent disguised as a priest sows suspicion between the Irish Americans and the IRA men that could ignite into a physical and spiritual explosion and could tear the community apart at its very seams.
