Peril by R.A. Barnes

Peril Cover MEDIUM WEB

His choices. Their lives. A moment of madness.

Ger Mayes doesn’t stand out from the crowd and life is passing him by. He thinks the world owes him a living but is held back by his own minor daily misdemeanors. That is until he kills a mugger and is blackmailed by a vicious Romanian crime gang. Ger keeps the secret from his wife, Jo, but bares all to her best friend, his mistress Renée. He also trusts his pal, high-wheeling drug dealer Tom, but gets dragged out of his depth into a world of darker deception. In a deadly struggle to cast off the gang’s net, Ger becomes more entangled. Can he find a way out and save those he loves?

Contemporary crime fiction set in Ireland, PERIL is the picaresque story of an anti-hero. Men want to be him, women want to redeem him. Ger’s story is fiction, but his origins are real – everyday folk living and working in a Dublin city center wracked with organized begging, drugs and violent crime. It’s not all leprechauns and shillelaghs in Ireland.

PERIL is the first of the Ger Mayes crime fiction series, available at Amazon.
