Then a double murder takes place, a bishop passes away in a bizarre manner, and the nymphet Angel Rose enters his life -- and all in the week that Wexford has yet again been beaten in the All-Ireland hurling final. Blaine is forced to duck and dive through the mean streets of a heat wave-gripped Dublin, trying to preserve life and limb. In a violent climax in a junk-yard, Blaine is forced to rely on unlikely allies to save him from a bloody end, and to reflect upon the true nature and meaning of his lifes calling.
