A CLASH OF KINGS - By George R. R. Martin (Review)

Start by marking “Captains and the Kings” as Want to Read: Joseph Francis Xavier Armagh was thirteen years old when he first saw America through a dirty porthole on the steerage deck of The Irish Queen. Taylor Caldwell was born in Manchester, England.


Barbara Golder. Synopsis: What happens to a new love when an old one appears to claim first rights to a man and a marriage? When Eoin discovers that Fiona was responsible for the denial of their annulment, he returns to Ireland to find the proof to free him to marry Jane. After Fiona is found dead in her hotel room, Eoin is indicted for her murder. Unwilling to leave the matter solely in the hands of Irish authorities, Jane goes to Ireland to follow the evidence wherever it leads. My review: Riveting follow-up to Dying for Revenge.
