The year is 1950, World War II is over, food rationing is nearly finished and the word teenager has just been invented. There are nineteen identical yellow-brick terraced houses on one side of the Avenue and twenty on the other yet each house is a world of its own and as different from the next as the people who live in them.
Frankie is a Dublin-based paedophile hunter. By creating a fake online profile, pretending to be a minor, he lures men into conversations and eventually a meeting. Instead of a paedophile meeting a child they are confronted by Frankie who offers them an ultimatum. Pay him €10,000 or he’ll send all of their information to the Gardaí (Irish Police Force).Either way, every paedophile caught in Frankie’s web will pay for their actions. Snared takes the reader from the darkest corners of the internet, through the streets of Dublin, exposing the seedy underbelly of Irish society. A case that becomes national news almost leads to Frankie's arrest. Can Detectives Harrison and O'Leary out-wit the elusive Frankie to finally reveal his motives and his true identity? Snared.
Many churches in Ireland have closed in recent decades, partly because of declining Protestant congregations, and partly because the Catholic hierarchy choose to build modern places of worship as an inducement to young people.
