About the Book:  

It is 1985 and the peace process in Northern Ireland seems light years away.  A mysterious individual with the name Martin Keogh saves a Protestant girl from a mugging in the streets of Belfast and is accepted into the inner sanctum of a breakaway Loyalist faction.  They are plotting an audacious gold bullion heist in the English Lake District followed by an escape by sea back to the Irish mainland.  But, as they soon discover, greed can foil even the best laid plans. 

In 1995 the new atmosphere of peace in Northern Ireland masks a menacing threat: the head of the British Prime Minister’s ‘secret army’ has just been alerted by his opposite number in the USA that a dangerous Irish prisoner has, with the help of the Mafia, escaped form a top-security prison.  He and his accomplices are thought to be en route to Ireland.  Their plans, if a frightened informer can be relied upon, could blow the peace process out of the water.  Both the British and US premiers know that there is only one man with the ruthlessness and expertise to avert disaster – the IRA enforcer turned British agent, Sean Dillon.  

As the various contenders converge, and as a trail of deceit and counter-deceit is uncovered, Sean Dillon finds himself walking in the footsteps of the past.
