'A beautifully written novel about smalltown secrets and the mysteries of the human heart. The Lonesome Heart is Angry may just be Paul Charles's best book yet.' - John Connolly
What seems like a routine job for the matchmaker, Michael Gilmour, in a 1960s small Northern Irish town becomes something very much more when events take an unexpected turn. The brothers Kane have an idea for their matches that will set tongues wagging, light the fires of jealousy in more than one heart, and open the door to tragedy.
The Lonesome Heart is Angry explores life in a small town and the darker side of the human condition. It doesn't shy away from the gossip, the fear, the violence and desperation that can build up inside people and behind closed doors.
Set in Castlemartin, home of the Playboys who featured in Paul Charles' The Last Dance, The Lonesome Heart is Angry is a gripping novel that will keep you reading until the last page.

This books juiciness ends at the finish of the free sample. Sadly the author used a large hook and then poured every idea possible for MANY books into one story and disappointed his readers. I was SO happy to see a fresh idea out there. How often does anyone run across a book with two twins who want to share a wife? But I was saddened as soon as I say the book two titled as detective. This could've been such a great book without all the problems that were poured into it.
