SHORTLISTED FOR 2012 'BOOK OF THE YEAR': Galway, Spring 1612. The Atlantic port of Galway has become a hotbed of conspiracy and intrigue against English rule in Ireland. In this thrilling 17th century swashbuckler, Lucás, a young student and a gifted swordsman, is entrusted by a shady Jesuit priest with an important mission that will take him on a perilous journey across Europe. Following hot on his heels, in the narrow streets of the city, is the enemy's most devious and brutal spy - with orders to stop him, at all costs.

The first of a trilogy of novels that will traverse Europe on the company of Lúcás Ó Briain in the early years of the 16th Century hAoise, with the enemy snapping at our heels.

Tá an-mhothú ann don tréimhse in atmaisféar na Gaillimhe. Braitheann tú go raibh tú ann i 1612. Airíonn tú go bhfuil tú i lámha scríbhneora an-snasta. — Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, Comhluadar na Leabhar, RTÉ RnaG

Seo é an saothar is dírí agus is eachtrúla atá scríofa Liam Mac Cóil go nuige seo. Ropann an scéal ar aghaidh ó eachtra go heachtra agus ropann an léitheoir ar aghaidh ó leathanach go leathanach. — Micheál Mac Craith, Comhar.

You can feel the boots and blades in Mac Cóil's Galway... An Litir is a singular achievement. — Pól Ó Muiri, The Irish Times
