Mission By Paul Forrester-O'Neill Cover Image
Not On Our Shelves - Available to Order


A novel of a father, a son, and the mayhem a lie can wreak: "Mission is a book that will stay with me. A remarkable debut." -Sarah Haywood, New York Times-bestselling author of The Cactus

A five-year-old boy and his father are separated by an unforgivable lie. Twenty years later, they meet, and the father, dying, tells of the con men who cheated him of all he had-and the small Northwestern town called Mission that spurned him. Now it is time for revenge.

What follows is a twisting story of guile and brutality, mud and gold, as the father's enemies are played by a young man with the crooked snout and the pocketful of hatpins . . .

"A powerful narrative which charts one man's attempt to overcome adversity and reclaim his family's land." -Tamar Hodes, author of The Water and the Wine

"Paul Forrester-O'Neill reveals himself to be an ambitious prose stylist." -Nicholas Royle, author of The Director's Cut
