Publisher's Summary

The plan is so complex, the target so well protected that the three snipers have to rehearse the killing in the seclusion of the Arizona desert. Cole Howard of the FBI knows he has only days to prevent the audacious assassination. But he doesn’t know who the target is or where the crack marksmen will strike.

Former SAS sergeant Mike Cramer is also on the trail, infiltrating the Irish community in New York as he tracks down Mary Hennessy, the ruthless killer who tore his life apart. Unless Cramer and Howard agree to cooperate, the world will witness the most spectacular terrorist coup of all time.…

    Story
    "Difficult but possible!"

    This is the first Stephen Leather book that I have read and I am so glad that I decided to try out a new author! It is full of action with believable characters, or maybe I'm just too ingenuous. The character I liked most was former SAS sergeant Mike Cramer . He had a fair share of hang-ups and it was possible to believe that it could all end in tragedy. I liked the contrasts in the book, especially that between Mike and his old adversary Mary Hennessy. Minor characters too were well executed and helped to keep the interest high. Obviously a well researched book. I was kept guessing how it could all fix out in the end. Not exactly what I expected in parts which made it even better for me. The narration by Martyn Read was excellent and certainly added to the general enjoyment. A truly gripping book that I found hard to put down. I shall certainly be listening to more Stephen Leather and be on the lookout for Martyn Read.

    "One of his best!!"

    Outstanding on many levels. Story full of suspense and builds to a satisfying conclusion.
    I personally enjoyed The Chinaman for the unusual subject matter, and the poignant story of correct an injustice. But, this story keeps on building! So glad that I can play it through my car radio as couldn't stop listening!
    Tone, pace and delivery are excellent too.
    Having spent too long serving in NI, there was a certain level of smug satisfaction for a job well done.
    Great story, expertly crafted and delivered.

    Wish I could have saved this story for my next boring flight to Australia. Would have been the perfect company on the flight.

    "Edge of the seat"

    Great storyline from the outset, 2 stores running alongside each other coming together in brilliant fashion towards the end, still a few loose ends so look forward to exploring Stephen Leather titles

    "Predictable and too long."

    Easy to listen to but poor attention to detail. Not the worst book I've downloaded but one of them. First and last by this author.
