The secret of Molly Malone, known only to the readers of this book, came to me as a pleasant surprise. I had seen the movie starring Tom Berenger called 'One Man's Hero' which is based on Hogan's history of the Irish Battalion. But this book is more exciting than the movie and more troubling. Hogan gives the reader a genuine sense of being in the mind of young Dillon, the Irish immigrant who fights on the Mexican side. One can almost smell the smoke of the cannons and taste the blood. When Molly Malone finally appears towards the end of ther book, the reader is rewarded again with a series of lyrical passages which make the latter half of this novel one of the best in the historical genre.
