Mission Summary

Mission: A boy, his father and an unforgivable lie by Paul Forrester-O'Neill

A boy and his father are separated by an unforgivable lie. Twenty years later they meet, and his dying father tells him of the men who cheated him and the town of Mission that spurned him. John plans his revenge. What follows is a twist of guile and brutality, mud and gold, as his father's enemies are played by the young man with the crooked snout and the pocketful of hatpins.
