False Intentions (2005)

In the dead of a Dublin night, James ‘Kelpie’ Kilburn struggles ashore with an enormous cocaine haul. Later, Ashley Naughton leaves Tempest, a city nightclub owned by lowlife Vinnie York, to return home. Both vanish from sight.

Soon, notorious Dublin criminal Patrick York arrives from Holland to investigate his missing haul. The heat is on, particularly for his son Vinnie and for Patrick’s long-time cohort Edward Naughton, father of Ashley.

Rookie detectives Sarah Kenny and John Quigley are called in by the missing girl’s mother. As fears grow for Ashley, they must piece together a dangerous puzzle – and try to avoid the flying bullets. Would Edward Naughton sacrifice his own daughter to keep ahead of a multimillion-euro industry?

And why, just when they’re getting somewhere, does their client call off the search?

False Intentions is a fast-paced thriller that twists and turns to its startling conclusion.
