World of Tomorrow

Reminiscent of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay… with the wit of a ’30s screwball comedy, this one grabs the reader from the beginning to its suspenseful climax’. – Publishers Weekly starred review

From the opening scene of a shameless Irish charmer posing as a wealthy Scottish lord, this rollicking tale of love, blackmail and betrayal in 1930s New York takes you captive. Only ten days before Sir Angus McFarquar, aka Irish scamp Francis Xavier Dempsey, had been released from a Dublin prison for his father’s funeral when he and his brother were whisked to a getaway car bound for an IRA ‘safe’ house. When the house explodes and cash rains from the sky, the boys take the money and run … When Tom Cronin, a former hitman forced into one last job, tracks the Dempsey brothers down in New York, their lives collide spectacularly. From the smoky jazz joints of Harlem to the mobster warehouses in Hell's Kitchen, The World of Tomorrow delivers superb storytelling, unforgettable characters, and a thoroughly good time.
