The year is 1953. As the Cold War divides the world, two childhood friends - now foes - carve out an existence. Karl, haunted by the past, teaches history in his home town of Hallstatt, while Max, driven by power and wealth, leads the Fratres, an extreme branch of the Catholic Church -with control of the Vatican his ultimate goal.
When Karl is called to Rome to expose the corruption that has infiltrated the Church, the two men are destined to meet again. The past must be put to rest. But at what cost?
From Moscow to CIA Headquarters to a Budapest prison, Sons of Cain is an epic tale of lust, power and corruption where deception is a way of life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Christy Kenneally * : *
'Hugely entertaining ... drives along at satisfyingly breakneck speed ... * Irish Independent *
'With sparkling dialogue, deft characterisations and vivid sense of place Kenneally has the reader in the palm of his hand as the action speeds from continent to continent...a second thriller even more compelling than the first.' * Irish Independent Review *
A fine read...thrilling...skilful and engrossing. * Sunday Tribune Review *
'Kenneally is a delight to read. Witty, dexterous, accessible, his prose elevates this novel from workaday thrillers. It has "international hit" written all over it.' * Ireland on Sunday *
a real page-turner... Kenneally manages to get inside of the main characters perfectly * Woman's Way *
A masterful debut . . . * Irish Times *
An absolute pleasure to read. * Irish Examiner Weekender *
This is excellent first outing with a hint of great things to come. * Ireland on Sunday *
Robert Ludlum crossed with John Millington Synge. * Irish Independent *
