By Gerald Seymour
A fast paced thriller by a journalist who had worked in northern Ireland for ITN.
“His mind was still racing, unable to take in the violence of the scene behind him. His only reaction was that there had been something terribly simple about it all, that for all the work and preparation that had gone into the killing it should have been harder. He remembered the woman over the body, the children and the dog on the pavement, the old woman he had avoided on the pavement outside the house. But none of them registered: his only compulsion now was to get clear of the city.”

A British cabinet minister is gunned down by an IRA assassin. The police trail goes cold, and undercover agent Harry Brown is sent to infiltrate the terrorist organisation and get the killer. It’s a race against the clock, and one false move will be enough to leave him dead before he reaches his target.
The book attempts to represent the interactions between the intelligence services and the IRA.
