On the Edge of the Loch

By Joseph Eamon Cummins

Literary fiction, General fiction, Action & adventure | Paperback, eBook


This critically-acclaimed literary novel by Dubliner Joseph Éamon Cummins is a moving tale of four exceptional but very different people, two men and two women, each chasing their own dream. They fight to connect, stay sane, and survive events outside their control, for the chance, ultimately, to love. The reader, never permitted to see ahead, experiences the drama as it happens, which creates constant tension. As the story moves toward a climactic end, it is impossible to predict how the disparate strands can tie together. An intimate psychological adventure, the story is set in Ireland, America and Iraq. Praised as ‘brilliantly bright’ and ‘startling’ by critics, this literary work is an intelligent depiction of those driving desires that make us human, vulnerable, and sometimes dangerous. Jack Engelhard, author of Indecent Proposal, said: ‘Compelling, one exquisite insight after another, each chapter a literary or visceral delight . . . it has epic qualities.’

The author stresses that this novel is not a 'psychological thriller', no psychopathic killers or computer fiends bent on global destruction. Rather, it’s intimate and readable!
