Detective Kate Bowen is accustomed to dealing with difficult men as she leads Dublin’s Surveillance and Intelligence Unit, and in her disastrous love life.
But when her team discover ex-IRA stirrings and chatter of an alliance between a rogue group and a Paris-based militant Islamic cell, Kate unearths a tangled conspiracy hiding a vengeful Irish terrorist's plot. Her investigation leads her into a warren of France's disenfranchised Muslim youth, a bombing at the BBC proms, and sniping between intelligence agencies that threatens to derail the case.
And Kate's boyfriend, the seductive Charlie, isn't exactly what he seems either. Not by a long shot.
A police procedural with a gritty female lead detective pitted against an international alliance of the world's worst terrorists, a pompous MI5 Section Chief seeking glory, with innocents being tortured and slaughtered along the blood strewn way.
