Sunday mornings are not supposed to be this stressful.
The St Jude’s Under-12s hurling team has a match against a hated opponent and their manager, one Bunny McGarry, has made an ill-judged wager on the outcome. His dignity is now relying on the worst team anyone has ever seen, turning around a losing streak that feels like it’s lasted longer than World War I only with not as many light-hearted moments.
As if that wasn’t enough, it turns out crime doesn’t take weekends off either, and when duty calls, sometimes you have to bring a minibus full of pre-teen delinquents with you.
Escape from Victory is a novella (book 7.5) in the Amazon bestselling, critically acclaimed and numerically infuriating Dublin Trilogy.
