We are thrilled to announce that a well-loved book from Liberties Press's back catalogue has been chosen for as the Dublin: One City One Book choice for 2017!
Echoland by Joe Joyce is '...an entertaining and atmospheric historical thriller...' (Irish Independent), the first part in an excellent trilogy set during World War II.
Some words from our Publishing MD Seán O'Keeffe below.
"Liberties Press is delighted that Echoland by Joe Joyce has been selected as the Dublin: One City One Book choice for 2017. Echoland is a superb evocation of life in wartime Dublin - a hotbed for spying due to Ireland's neutrality and strategically important position - through the experiences of Paul Duggan, a new recruit to G2, the army's intelligence division, and Special Branch detective Peter Gifford. Above all, it is a gripping story that takes the reader right back to the tumultuous events of that time. We look forward to working with Joe and Dublin City Libraries on the programme of events for April 2017, and to helping bring Echoland - and the other two books in the series, Echobeat and Echowave - to a new group of readers."
