It’s the first “IRA six pack” since the 1970s and The Troubles in Northern Ireland. And Seamus McCree is in hot water. Again.
Seamus returns to Cincinnati after a routine business trip to discover his home has become a crime scene. The murder victim posed in his basement is an acquaintance who endured the six pack: bullets to his ankles, knees, and elbows. Forced to prove his innocence, Seamus uncovers a twisted trail that leads back to his Boston roots. He’s stunned to learn the truth about his father’s death and the resulting divorce of Boston’s Irish mafia and the Provisional IRA.
The more Seamus digs for the truth, the more his life unravels. As the body count climbs, all trails lead back to him, forcing Seamus underground to smoke out who is framing him — and why — before he becomes the next victim.

Bad Policy is a beautifully woven mystery set in Cincinnati, Boston and Chicago that kept me up 'til the wee hours. I finally had to put on my big girl pants, force myself to go to bed at 3 A.M., and finish reading it the next day. Jim's next book is entitled Cabin Fever and I'm already looking forward to staying up past my bed time again to immerse myself in it. Thanks for the great read, Jim! Keep writing...
I just finished "Bad Policy" and really enjoyed it! Mysteries aren't my usual genre but this grabbed me from the beginning and I read it in one day. The humor is subtle and dry and the plot interesting. I found myself rooting for Seamus and his son and anxious for a happy ending. Looking forward to more of this author and Seamus.
