Patrick Michael Rucker told CA: "I wrote about the Irish peace process and the fitful, often tragic way it was unfolding after a long personal interest in the region. No American journalist had explained events in the region to my satisfaction, and I felt compelled to write. I was fortunate enough to find an agent and publisher that got behind the project."
