The third book in the Lúcás Ó Briain series (An Litir). The Atlantic port of Galway 1612, Lucás, a young student and a gifted swordsman, is entrusted by a shady Jesuit priest with an important letter to be delivered into the hands of Aodh Mór Ó Néill, Earl of Tyrone (leader of the Irish chieftains in Rome seeking the help of Philip of Spain to retake Ireland from the English). Lúcás's mission will take him on a perilous journey across Europe. Following hot on his heels, in the narrow streets of the city, is the enemy's most devious and brutal spy - with orders to stop him, at all costs.

"Tá an triológ seo ar na trí leabhar is fearr a scríobhadh i nGaeilge riamh ... is eipic é ... Seo leabhar na bliana 2020. Ní thiocfaidh leabhar níos fearr i mbliana!"— Maitiú Ó Coimín, An Cúinne Dána RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta

The final book of a trilogy of novels that crosses Europe on the company of Lúcás Ó Briain in the early years of the 16th Century, with the enemy snapping at our heels.

You can feel the boots and blades in Mac Cóil's Galway... An Litir is a singular achievement. — Pól Ó Muiri, The Irish Times

Tá an-mhothú ann don tréimhse in atmaisféar na Gaillimhe. Braitheann tú go raibh tú ann i 1612. Airíonn tú go bhfuil tú i lámha scríbhneora an-snasta. — Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, Comhluadar na Leabhar, RTÉ RnaG

Page-turner.... Seasfaidh an scéal seo i measc mórscéalta gaiscíochta an domhain. — Proinsias Mac a'Bhaird, Gaelscéal
Seo é an saothar is dírí agus is eachtrúla atá scríofa Liam Mac Cóil go nuige seo. Ropann an scéal ar aghaidh ó eachtra go heachtra agus ropann an léitheoir ar aghaidh ó leathanach go leathanach. — Micheál Mac Craith, Comhar.
