Second Son

Second Son

by Christy Kenneally

Overview

When Gabriel Flaherty plunges from a cliff to his death, it is left to his brother Michael, a priest from New York, to return home to The Island and uncover what has happened. Michael finds his childhood home much changed. With the opening of a factory, the sea that had given the islanders their livelihoods, and claimed so many of their lives, is no longer vital; but along with steadier incomes and easier lives, the factory has brought suspicion and jealousy. While confronting his past—his estranged father, his first love, and the old priest who changed his life—Michael discovers an intricate, far-reaching web of evil that touches everyone he knows. When the close-knit islanders realize the full extent of what is going on, they unite to avenge their own, seeking justice of a different kind. As the net tightens, they wait and watch to see who will survive…
