Aloysius creates 'accidents' that kill. He fled a notorious Irish care home and has built a life as a hitman, travelling Europe and ending lives for cash. Now veteran government recruiter Imelda Feather, 64, wants him back to slay four of the nation’s most hated people. It takes guile to lure him in, to convince him it’s not a second betrayal by the powers-that-be in Ireland.
On the cusp of the hundredth anniversary of the formation of the state, Aloysius, 40, finds himself a key player in the most extraordinary 'PR operation' in history. An evil loan shark, a wicked former priest and a wildly controversial female politician find themselves in his sights. But when he learns more about his fourth target, Aloysius must reverse the roles - and hunter becomes hunted. Narrated by the protagonist, Aloysius Tempo is a story of finding a place in a world where trust has crumbled and, more than ever, ends justify means. As Aloysius works to build a future and shake away the past, this story sees him begin to move in time with his country.
