Beyond The Bridge

A Dermot Sparhawk Thriller

Dermot Sparhawk, a struggling alcoholic, reluctantly agrees to help clear the name and find the killer of an accused pedophile priest. After more priests are slain, it becomes evident that he is dealing with a sadistic serial killer. When the police and others attempt to stop Sparhawk’s efforts, he gathers together a cadre of unlikely allies for support. With the help of his Micmac Indian cousin, his paraplegic tenant and former Boston College teammate, Dermot blazes an unconventional trail to the killer. Even with his unique team, Sparhawk must use his Micmac instincts and Irish wit to charm and bulldoze his way to the truth.
