During the first uncertain years of the Northern Ireland peace process three simultaneous terrorist attacks in Belfast, Dublin and London shatter the hope that the bloodshed is finally over. The perpetrators are a new terror group called the Ulster Freedom Brigade. And they have one goal - to destroy the peace process.

This is one of Silva's early books, before the Gabriel Allon series. Some of the usual characters do show up.

I feel this book shows Silva's gift for plot development. I did not see the ending coming and highly recommend the book, especially for Silva fans.

I found the story gripping and informative. I don't have much background about the present day Irish troubles and this gave me some insight into the complexity of the issues. Brutal power struggles, it can happen anywhere when communities hold and refuse to do as Mandala has advise his countrymen and forgive and get on with creating a just society.

I really enjoyed the book right up to the end, which I thought was very bad
