Seventy Times Seven by John Gordon Sinclair

Seventy Times Seven

John Gordon Sinclair

1992 and the Troubles are far from over - in Alabama USA as well as in Northern Ireland. A gripping, violent, complicated plot makes this book a great thriller, but it also raises interesting questions regarding inherent evil and the problems caused by personal revenge.

But worst of all, a head shorn at the neck: the face partially covered by long matted strips of hair and caked with dried blood; the drawn, colourless skin stretched tight over its skull.
Danny stared at the head in horror, unable to break away. Suddenly every muscle in his body contracted at the same instant, as a terrible realisation left him struggling to catch his breath.
