Woundlicker Summary

Woundlicker by Jason Johnson

'Belfast came up with the Titanic, the Troubles, the car bomb, kneecapping, Ulster fries and big fucken sinks. What the fuck is all that about? I mean, it's been great for churches and off-licences and journalists and all, but that's it.' Maverick misfit, Fletcher Fee is being recorded. And he's got a lot to say. Incensed by attacks on 'Wee Blondie', his teenage neighbour, and by the senseless murder of his only friend, Karim, Fee responds with increasingly violent acts of revenge that threaten to derail the uneasy peace process in Northern Ireland. Living on the edge, Fee moves invisibly through a gritty post-ceasefire Belfast, confounding the police and paramilitaries and exposing a dark network of lies and collusion. But how far will the mysterious authorities let him go? And why? A monologue presented in the form of a classified British government report, Jason Johnson's "Woundlicker" is a page-turning thriller from an exciting new voice in Irish fiction.
