Michael Osbourne, hero of THE MARK OF THE ASSASSIN, has quit the CIA, bitter and disillusioned. But when the President chooses his father-in-law to be the next American ambassador to Britain, Osbourne is drawn into battle with some of the most ruthless and violent men on earth ...

This is one of Silva's early books, before the Gabriel Allon series. Some of the usual characters do show up.

I feel this book shows Silva's gift for plot development. I did not see the ending coming and highly recommend the book, especially for Silva fans.

I found the story gripping and informative. I don't have much background about the present day Irish troubles and this gave me some insight into the complexity of the issues. Brutal power struggles, it can happen anywhere when communities hold and refuse to do as Mandala has advise his countrymen and forgive and get on with creating a just society.

I really enjoyed the book right up to the end, which I thought was very bad
