Pearce Monaghan, the dynamic charismatic minister in Ireland’s newest political party is enjoying popular support by the electorate, who see him as a future leader. Yet his world starts to unravel when he purchases land for a job program from the seductive and beautiful Avis, an American horse trainer with a castle in Kildare. His political rivals spread rumors of profiteering, conflict of interest and murder.
Against this backdrop of Irish political life, Rosie Leahy, a journalist, and Connell McDaid, an aide to the minister, join forces to restore the image of Pearce and the political party. Their love affair unfolds as they dig deep to uncover the mysteries behind the crimes.
