An embittered ex-CIA agent, Michael Osbourne is drawn into the troubled peace of Northern Ireland when his father-in-law, ex-Senator Douglas Cannon, is appointed ambassador to Britain and becomes the target of ruthless assassin Jean-Paul Delaroche

Blackwell North Amer
Retired CIA officer Michael Osbourne, the hero of The Mark of the Assassin, is lured back to the Agency after his father-in-law, former U.S. Senator Douglas Cannon, is nominated to be the new American ambassador to London. When Michael discovers that the Protestant gunmen have marked Cannon for execution, he sets in motion a deadly contest of wits and deception that will determine whether the peace in Northern Ireland will survive and whether his father-in-law lives or dies.
What Michael Osbourne does not realize is that he is a pawn in a much larger game. Once again, his destiny is controlled by the Society, a secret order that uses its power and influence to foster global unrest for financial gain. And once again, he is pitted against his personal bete noire, Jean-Paul Delaroche, the world's most dangerous assassin, who slipped through Michael's fingers at the climax of The Mark of the Assassin.

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
