After young Irishman Coll Coyle accidentally kills a landowner in the spring of 1832, he is forced to abandon his wife and daughter and flee County Donegal for America. He arrives in a Philadelphia teeming with immigrants and quickly joins a railroad crew laboring under oppressive conditions and the death knells of cholera. Unfortunately for Coll, his victim's father has vowed revenge and has followed him to America. Paul Lynch's debut Red Sky in Morning mixes the pathos of a newborn nation with the relentless suspense of a story about a man on the run in a strange land.
