Format: Mass Market Paperback
The "hero" is not Allon but Michael Osbourne.
The book deals with Irland.
It's not very interesting and follows the pattern of the previous Osbourn book "Tha mark of the assassin".
Probably because the war between catholics and protestant is something I really don't understand so I wasn't very interested. The plot that is repetitive and rather dull, but as I said the subject is not something very interesting to my point of view.
However some fault must lie with the book, as i thought that the film "Michael Collins" was very interesting.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mary Whipple HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 4 April 2008
Format: Paperback
Against the backdrop of the Good Friday Accords of 1998, this 1999 thriller explores several groups which have reason to want the peace process to fail so that they can accomplish their own agendas. Partisans of the Republic and partisans of the Union have come to an agreement regarding peace and power-sharing, but the new Ulster Freedom Brigade believes that all sides have sold out, and they are willing to murder Catholics and Protestants alike as they continue the sectarian violence. At the same time an international group, the secret Society for International Development and Cooperation, consisting of powerful business and security officials from around the world, decides to use the uncertainties in Ulster to further their own business interests.

Michael Osbourne, formerly with the CIA, is lured out of retirement to promote the peace process and to guard his father-in-law, Douglas Cannon, who has just been appointed US ambassador to the Court of St. James. Osbourne has experienced personal danger, having escaped an assassination attempt the previous year, and he knows his way around Ireland. The Society, however, contacts the man who previously tried to kill him, a Russian known only as October, and hires him to stop Osbourne and the Ambassador and end the peace process.

Though the mystery associated with Ulster is exciting and filled with authentic detail, including some of the real characters associated with the Accords, the novel wanders into other, unrelated areas.

Excellent. Well written thriller, well built and easy to follow story, even for someone whose native language is not English. Already bought some more books in English from this author to read in the future, most of them in second hand. In comparison, the Portuguese books are quite expensive.

My wife brought me this book as an alternative read from my usual topics. It sat on the side for 2 months before I picked it up. How glad was I when I did...what a read, fantastic, it gripped me from the start and kept up the pace, right to the end. Fantastic, will try another book from this author.

By emarques on 31 Mar 2011
Format: Paperback
The story is well written and is interesting. In a story, the set spies/politics/terrorists is always a guarantee of a good story nowadays. The characters were reasonably defined - a bit more would not hurt - and the selection of places and historical events was interesting. The relation between characters was simple and direct, but this is a requirement is this type of novels. The pace of the story, the best of the book, was good, but a bit slow comparing to later similar novels, also from Silva.

I've already read the later books of Silva, and, because of that, I was interested in his initial books. 'The Unlikely Spy' is a must, but, in my opinion, the Micheal Osbourne series, although good and I recommend, are no more than a entrée to the Allon series, that are much better.

About the shopping process, it was a second hand book and the condition was poor. It was readable, but, in my opinion, not 'good', as advertised.

Format: Paperback
An excellent, fast paced novel that constantly maintains the reader's interest. As usual, Silva's historical research is impeccable but he brings an educated, impartial, American perspective to the tortured history of Northern Ireland. He then very cleverly develops the plot to take in a much wider, international perspective. A great read.
