Meet The Author

Joe Joyce’s latest works include Echoland (Liberties Press), set during the Second World War in Dublin; The Guinnesses: The Untold Story of Ireland’s Most Successful Family, a history of the Guinness family and brewery; and a play about James Joyce and Oliver St John Gogarty, The Tower. He is also the author of two thrillers – Off the Record and The Trigger Man – and co-author, with Peter Murtagh, of The Boss, the seminal book on Charles Haughey. He has worked as a staff reporter and freelance journalist for the Irish Times and the Guardian.

Echobeat is the second book in the Echoland series, which features Paul Duggan, his Special Branch friend Peter Gifford and a cast of political and intelligence operators in Ireland during the treacherous days of the Second World War.

France is under German control, Britain is in danger and the United States has yet to join the war. Ireland, meanwhile, has succeeded in staying neutral – so far. Reports of a British troop build-up in the North have raised fears that Ireland is facing an invasion by its neighbour. And German bombing of Ireland during the early days of 1941 suggests Berlin is trying to send Dublin a message. But what is the message? Paul Duggan and his colleagues in G2, the intelligence unit of the Irish army, have to find out fast. Any miscalculation could be fatal.
