The Price of Peace

by James B. Johnston

GrĂ¡inne O’Connor is a widow in her forties. Her search for justice leads to her arrest and a trial in which the key witness for the prosecution is the man responsible for the murder of her husband and son.

For a nation weary of death and destruction, the 1998 Belfast Peace Agreement signals the end of thirty years of conflict in Northern Ireland. But victims of The Troubles soon realize there’s a price to pay – the early release from prison of the very people who made them victims. For GrĂ¡inne O’Connor, this price is too high. As she searches for justice, she forms an alliance that ultimately leads to her arrest. Her subsequent trial for murder sets the stage for the novel riveting examination of justice.
