Win A Book!

Declan Burke, one of Ireland most respected crime novelists, has edited what I think is the definitive collection of essays on Irish crime writing. It's out this week and it's called Down These Green Streets.
...
I've written a piece for the collection about crime fiction in Northern Ireland in the period 1945 - 1990, which, if truth be told was rather a thin time for lovers of noir and mysteries. But fear not there are a few gems scattered among the decades. . .
...
My piece talks about one of my favourite novels of this period Odd Man Out which was subsequently filmed by Carol Reed. To win a copy of Down These Green Streets, I'd like you to answer this three part question:


1) In Odd Man Out which real Belfast pub does James Mason seek sanctuary in; 2) which actor who later played Dr Who is serving behind the bar; 3) in which Michael Forsythe novel does Michael also have a violent encounter in this very bar?
...
Ok, that's it. First person with all three correct answers gets the book. Please answer in the comments below and provide some kind of contact address. I'll contact you and Liberties Press will send you out a book.

bon chance mes amis! (as they say in Larne)
