Divorcing Jack by Colin Bateman, narrated by Adam Moore
From the author of Mystery Man, which was a Richard and Judy Summer Book Club pick
Dan Starkey is a young journalist in Belfast, who shares with his wife, Patricia, a prodigious appetite for drinking and dancing. Then Dan meets a beautiful and apparently impoverished student.
And then, terrifyingly, she is murdered. Is it because she was not exactly who she claimed to be? Is it the IRA? A Protestant extremist group? A jealous lover? Before long, Dan is a target himself…
‘Divorcing Jack is richly paranoid and very funny, it manages to say more about the Troubles than reams of earnest reportage ever could’ SUNDAY TIMES
