June, 1940. France is teetering on the brink of collapse. British troops are desperately fleeing Dunkirk. Germany is winning the war. Its next target is Britain . . . and Ireland.

In neutral Dublin opinions are divided. Some want Germany to win, others favor Britain, most want to stay out of the war altogether. In this atmosphere of edgy uncertainty, young lieutenant Paul Duggan is drafted into G2, the army’s intelligence division, and put on the German desk. He’s given a suspected German spy to investigate, one who doesn’t appear to do much, other than write ambiguous letters to a German intelligence post box in Copenhagen. Before Duggan can probe further, however, he is diverted by a request from his politician uncle to try and find his daughter, who’s gone missing, possibly kidnapped. Enlisting the help of witty Special Branch detective Peter Gifford, the two lines of inquiry take Duggan into the double-dealing worlds of spies and politics, and lead him back to a shocking secret that will challenge everything he has grown up believing. An addictive thriller that will keep you glued to the page, right through to its heart-pounding finale.

About the Author:

JOE JOYCE is an Irish writer, playwright and journalist whose previous works include The Guinnesses: The Untold Story of Ireland's Most Successful Family, and a play about James Joyce and Oliver St John Gogarty, The Tower. He is the author of two thrillers Off the Record and The Trigger Man and co-author with Peter Murtagh of The Boss, a seminal book on Irish politics. He has worked for a number of national and international newspapers as a staff reporter and freelance journalist, primarily the Irish Times and the Guardian. He is currently producing a weekly column for the Irish Times from its archives going back to the paper’s foundation in 1859. Joe lives in Dublin.

Review:

"Set in 1940, Echoland is set during a fascinating period of contemporary Irish history as it the country tries to negotiate its neutral role and its relationship to Britain and Germany. Joyce weaves an interesting plot involving G2 (military intelligence) and Special Branch as they keep tabs on the German legation, suspected German spies, and the IRA, who view the war as an opportunity to leverage a united Ireland." (The View from the Blue House)

"Echoland by Joe Joyce is a thoughtful blend of spy novel and historical thriller." (Irish Times)
