The Salesman Summary

The Salesman by Joseph O'Connor

From the bestselling author of Star of the Sea and Shadowplay, a thrilling novel about a father who takes the law into his own hands.

'Gripping and moving...a taut, expertly crafted plot' Guardian

Dublin, June 1995: the hottest summer since records began. But Billy Sweeney, a middle-aged salesman with a failed marriage, a faltering career and a tumbledown house, has more than weather on his mind.

His youngest daughter lies in a coma in hospital following a mysterious attack on the petrol station where she worked. Devastated by the unfolding consequences of that violent night and frustrated by the system, Billy finally decides to take the law into his own hands.

'A game of psychological cat and mouse is at the core of The Salesman... Gripping' Harper's Bazaar

The Salesman Reviews

[A] gripping and moving thriller * Guardian *
Like other young Irish writers, O'Connor brings into view a sharp and harsh image of contemporary Ireland. But this carries with it a feeling of emotional credibility not found in more traditional and stereotypical images of Irish life. It also brings a deeply ironic black humour of which the novel is full * Scotsman *
Very near perfection. You'll be on the edge of your seat. * The Literary Review *
