Book Tour – Aidan McRaney

I’d just like to thank Lisa Devaney for the idea of putting together a bit of a book character tour for the lead character in many of my self-published books.

Aidan McRaney by Pete Shorney1: What is the name of your character?

His name is Aidan McRaney. Aidan was born in Dublin. He’s in his early thirties, he has black curly hair and the warmest brown eyes. He is fictional.

2:When and where is the story set?

The story is mostly set in London, but occasionally moves to Dublin.The books so far are set between 2011 and 2014.

3:What should we know about him?

He is an ex-offender and served eight years in prison for shooting the would-be assassin of his employer, gang boss Frankie Lamond. Aidan is trying hard to come to terms with the sight of his girlfriend murdered in cold blood before his eyes, which was also the night Frankie was left disabled by the shooting.

4: What is the main conflict? What messes up his life?

His ex-wife, Judy, for one. She only allows him a day a month access to see his son Patrick. There are also those who believe he should have received a lengthier sentence. The family of the murdered assassin sets out to destroy  Aidan’s beloved family, using soft targets such as his 18 year old sister.

5: What is the personal goal of the character?

To be a father to his son and a good husband to his wife. However, the criminal underworld has other ideas. He knows they’ll never let him go. There’s always someone out there to exploit him.
