An Honest Life

An Honest Life is a powerful and stirring crime novel with a dark sense of humour

that reveals the redemptive power of adversity.

JF Conroy is the author of An Honest Life, a 'thrilling crime novel with a beating heart'.

Ruthless crime lord Declan Hennessy has only one ambition; to rule Dublin’s northside. Once he is in control of the drug trade, he can take his foot off the pedal and enjoy the empire he has built for his family.

Incompetent amateur Martin Lynch has charm and no real malice. At heart an honest man, he struggles to provide for his family as a result of bad debts and worse luck.


Declan and Martin despise each other but over the past two decades, their families’ lives have become intertwined in unsettling ways. 

If they cannot find a way to unite, they will lose everything.
