Publication: THE GHOST FACTORY by Jenny McCartney

Jenny McCartney publishes her debut novel, THE GHOST FACTORY (Fourth Estate), on March 21st. Quoth the blurb elves:
The Troubles turned Northern Ireland into a ghost factory: as the manufacturing industry withered, the death business boomed. In trying to come to terms with his father’s sudden death, and the attack on his harmless best friend Titch, Jacky is forced to face the bullies who still menace a city scarred by conflict. After he himself is attacked, he flees to London to build a new life. But even in the midst of a burgeoning love affair he hears the ghosts of his past echoing, pulling him back to Belfast, crying out for retribution and justice.
