Dancing in Limbo

Oliver Cromwell McCoy, God’s man in Ulster, has stumbled into the radio age. With a crumbling transmitter left over from the Titanic he has taken to blasting the countryside with his inimitable brand of mendacious evangelism.His old adversary across the Shambles, Cardinal Schnozzle O’Shea, is determined to go one better. He needs a good-looking priest to anchor the great TV chat show he believes will get Ireland back on its knees. When his eye lights on young Frank Feely, authoritarianism and bigotry duly lock horns.But more elemental forces are at work too. Emboldened by a dimly recalled vision they once shared, the vision of an enigmatic Madonna who danced for them and for them alone, three young people began a movement to challenge the straitjacket of their destinies. But is theirs a dream of hope? Or are they about to unleash a nightmare of new and as yet unimagined terror?By turns deeply thought-provoking and wildly funny, Dancing in Limbo plunges the reader into the modern-medieval world created by the author in his hugely acclaimed first novel, Shambles Corner.
