Washington, D.C.: The phone rings on the desk of Blake Johnson, head of the White House department known as The Basement. The President wants him now.
London: The Prime Minister sits thinking of Sean Dillon, the one-time terrorist, now his most effective, if not exactly trusted, operative. It'll have to be Dillon, he thinks. There's no one else.
Someone is killing off the members of a splinter group known as the Sons of Erin, normally not a cause for much concern, but the consequences are much greater than anyone realizes. For in these actions lie the seeds of disaster: the fall of two governments, the derailing of the Irish peace process. Dillon and Johnson must stop this unknown assassin, the heads of state agree, quickly, quietly, before all hell breaks loose...
But they may already be too late. For in the Manhattan night, the silver-haired woman smiles, adjusts her rain hat more snugly on her head, and steps out into the street. Four down, she thinks.
Three to go.
Catch all of our Sean Dillon titles.

One of my favorite JH/SD novels. Can anyone explain why NO KINDLE VERSION EXISTS???
Loved all the character's in this book. Dillon is such a cold blooded killer but is somehow a very likable caracter. l plan on listening to the whole series.
Another great book in the tradition of Sean Dillon kicking butt and taking names. I like the involvment of the Americans this time as well as the no nonsense of the Brigadier. Will Hannah ever completely forgive Dillon for his past?
I love this series and if you do too then you won't be disappointed. If you are new to the series I wouldn't start with this as a knowledge of the characters previous interplay is necessary for a full appreciation. As soon as I finished I came back to download the next in the series and it's not offered. What is up with that?
