Jonathan Murray fears his new-born daughter might not be as harmless as she seems. Sammy Agnew is wrestling with his dark past, and fears the violence in his blood lurks in his son, too. The city is in flames and the authorities are losing control. As matters fall into frenzy, and as the lines between fantasy and truth, right and wrong, begin to blur, who will these two fathers choose to protect?

What the critics say

"Gripping, affecting, surprising. I inhaled it." Lisa McInerney "Spectacular . . . Dark, beautiful, at once grittily real and wildly magical. Insanely alluring." Donal Ryan "With a caustic wit and lyrical prose style, The Fire Starters is a rumination on fatherhood, identity, culture and place ... it marks out Carson as one of the most exciting and original Northern Irish writers of her generation" Sunday Times "Shimmering with wit, simmering with an incandescent rage, shot through with a seam of wild magic, The Fire Starters is a powerful, disturbing portrait of East Belfast and its people and its hope for the future. I won't be the only reader to proclaim that, in the best way possible, Jan Carson is on fire." Lucy Caldwell "Captivating, intelligent and courageous" Irish Times
