Praise for Tom Molloy's
Rebel Streets:

  • “Tom Molloy's gripping novel puts readers in the hands, hearts, and minds of those who lived and died by the life-and-death code of The Troubles in Northern Ireland. Rebel Streets recreates that time in a story that, like the sectarian war itself, is by turns poignant, brutal, and inevitably tragic. I read it in one hold-your-breath sitting.” - GERRY BOYLE, author of Port City Black and White
  • “Rebel Streets begins with a harrowing interrogation scene that binds two men together—one a member of the IRA and the other a detective with the Royal Ulster Constabulary—in an unholy alliance that wreaks havoc in the streets and homes of Belfast. Molloy’s Ireland is already in our hearts, and his characters will also find a place there as they move toward the powerful and closing pages of this exhilarating and devastating novel.” - PAMELA PAINTER , author of Wouldn't You Like to Know
