Description-
  • Belfast. Spring 1981. Hunger strikes. Riots. Power cuts. A homophobic serial killer with a penchant for opera. A young woman's suicide that may yet turn out to be murder. On the surface, the events are unconnected, but then things — and people — aren't always what they seem. Detective Sergeant Duffy is the man tasked with trying to get to the bottom of it all. It's no easy job — especially when it turns out that one of the victims was involved in the IRA, but last seen discussing business with someone from the UVF. Add to that the fact that as a Catholic policemen, it doesn't matter which side he's on, because neither side trust him — and Sergeant Duffy really is in a no-win situation. Fast-paced, evocative and brutal, Cold, Cold Ground is a brilliant depiction of Belfast at the height of the Troubles — and a cop treading a thin, thin line.
