Adrian McKinty (Author of The Cold Cold Ground)

Dead I Well May Be is a novel written by Adrian McKinty in the year 2003. This is a thriller novel about an Irish ad boy living in the hard streets of New York. The story is full of greed, sexual betrayal and violence. Michael Forsythe is the protagonist in this book. He admits that he did not have to work for Darkey White but he went and worked for him anyway. He is a clever and young man, just the kind that Darkey White needs to build an Irish army. This is a very interesting book and is a definite page turner. It is interesting to see how the story unfolds.
