The Practice Field is the gripping new spy thriller from Brian McHugh, the author of Torn Edges and Between Two Bridges. Readers interested in espionage, crime and Irish history are guaranteed to enjoy this exciting and original book.

Set during the Second World War, The Practice Field follows Emily Fitzpatrick and Jack Patterson’s treacherous journey through Nazi-occupied Europe on a covert mission to provide intelligence on the German war effort. McHugh weaves together themes of secrecy, loyalty and deceit in this thrilling, fast-paced story.

Focusing on Irish espionage – an aspect of the War which is rarely talked about – The Practice Field offers a fresh historical perspective and challenges our preconceived ideas about Ireland’s neutrality during the conflict.
