Fugitive: The Michael Lynn Story is a fast-paced and thrilling journey into the mind of a reluctant fugitive brought down by his own insatiable greed. This is investigative journalism at its most compelling, placing the reader at the heart of the relentless global manhunt for fugitive Irish lawyer Michael Lynn and his stolen millions, and the trials that saw him finally brought to justice.

Facing accusations of massive fraud in 2007, Lynn secretly boards a flight at Dublin Airport and vanishes. With him goes all trace of the millions he secured from Irish banks and clients. Millions more, entrusted to Lynn by everyday investors for dream holiday homes abroad, is also missing. A month later, dogged investigative journalist Michael O’Farrell is on his tail, tasked with tracking Lynn down.

From the Algarve to the Black Sea and beyond, O’Farrell pursues his prey until he finally corners Lynn, who agrees to speak to him. However, Lynn continues to avoid the Irish authorities, even spending five years in a hellish Brazilian prison fighting extradition. Now, sixteen years after he first went on the run, he is finally being brought to justice.

This is a truly extraordinary tale of tension-filled encounters involving shadowy fixers, violent Mafia villains, international law organisations, suited, corporate crooks, and the man who thought he could outsmart them all, Michael Lynn.
