The Killer, Book 1 Publisher's summary

An action & adventure mystery thriller

The Killer is the first in a series of three fast-paced fiction thrillers.

A story of espionage, suspense, and terrorism, following Darren/Butch McCann, whose adventures begin amid the bombings and violence on the war-torn streets of 1970s Belfast.

His survival depends on his ability to fight, he learns quickly and fights well. The Provisional Irish Republican Army attempt to recruit him, but he refuses to take sides - until a family tragedy draw him into the ranks of IRA and their cause.

Military training follows and he's found to be an excellent sniper and freedom fighter, but it is one night, and one brutal interrogation, which earn him a reputation as "The Butcher of Belfast", pairing him with his infamous knife, The Killer.

Following a high-profile kill he's forced to flee Ireland and take refuge in Spain, where he becomes involved with an ETA paramilitary unit at their training camp deep in the Basque country. There, a thrilling and daring raid ensues, and strong alliances are formed with his new brethren.

The Provos, and an old friend, call him back to service. He performs his duty but, a moment of doubt convinces him that his home is now in the hills of Spain.

McCann knows he will always fight against the establishment. But, one British military intelligence agent has other ideas.
