Luke Diverali, a suave, sophisticated American, is touring Ireland in an attempt to escape from a rather inconvenient investigation into his banking activities. His speculators eye finds Brulagh not only attractive but, more importantly, ripe for development. If he can only overcome the obstacles that present themselves, both in business and in love, he can see huge profits just over the horizon. Luke encounters familiar characters from The Neon Madonna, such as the endearing Father Jerry, as well as a host of new ones - at the races, at the dances, and in his relentless pursuit of money. But in the funny, unconventional, and completely absorbing Ireland of Dan Binchys tale nothing turns out quite as planned.
