The Devil to Pay by Ted Dunphy,explores how a community of good people, attempting to do the right thing, fail to see the evil growing among them, while some of them deliberately cover it up. It begins in 1930s Ireland, a time of dominance of the Catholic Church. Six Irish boys are trying to break free from this dominance, and they deal with abusive adults determined to bring them in line. One is murdered, and fifty years later, his friends are still struggling to bring someone to justice.
It's a book that helps bring to light why people can look the other way, or make grave mistakes while trying to have a good goal in mind. In the end, the author shows that love hope, and humor are the best recourse for a strong future.
