“Sentenced to life imprisonment for murder in England Joe embarks on a quest for freedom, from the voices of his past and the reality of the present. To make good his escape he will have to align himself with organised criminals, Islamic Extremists and a shady part of British Intelligence. Amidst the turmoil of this intrigue Joe is increasingly forced to question where he belongs, a dilemma made more difficult by a visit from his estranged daughter.
Ultimately, Joe has to decide what’s worth dying for, and what’s worth killing for? Joe McDermot’s story is a look through the keyhole of men of violence everywhere. It challenges the hypocrisy of policy makers and public endorsement, which feed the myths that sustain peoples palatable ideas of themselves.
No one is left unscathed, especially the perpetrators of violence, and their justifications for using it. Seeing the world from Joe’s perspective however, gives an insight into the confusion and vulnerability behind behaviour, otherwise difficult to comprehend.”
