An unforgettable, can't-put-it-down novel by a first rate writer
Sheila Doherty, Philomena (Phil) Maguire and Mary Branagh: you'll remember their names long after you've finished this wonderful first novel by award-winning Irish poet Gerry McCullough.
Romance, thriller, political intrigue and murder mystery, Belfast Girls is the story of modern Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic where drugs and drug gangs have infiltrated every level of society as they have everywhere else.
Sheila, Phil and Mary are the kind of characters that stick in your mind and bring you back for further visits. They just stick with you. I know I'll be back to get to know them better in the weeks and months to come.
Gerry McCullough is one fine writer. I look forward to her next novel.
A definite 5 star read.
