By Tony Kent
Kent starts with action and builds tension throughout the book, in a classic spy mystery.
Britain’s elite security forces seem powerless when an audacious attempt is made to assassinate a former US president in London. What follows is a chain reaction of events that rekindle old relationships, while tearing other relationships apart.
The story flows around three main characters, Joe Dempsey, a deadly military intelligence officer who witnesses this botched assassination; CNN reporter Sarah Truman, who stumbles into the story, become part of it; and Michael Devlin, a Belfast-born criminal barrister with a secret past.
These three main characters are well developed, and the plot moves quickly, making it compelling reading.
