From the Back Cover
For more than four years, Martin McGartland lived the terrifying double life of a secret agent. To the IRA terrorist organization in Ireland, he was a trusted intelligence officer. To the British Government he was "Agent Carol". British Intelligence credits Martin McGartland with saving the lives of at least fifty people. He risked detection every time he passed on secret information. Yet he could tell no one, not even the young mother of his two children. Finally after four years, his cover was blown. Martin was taken from Sinn Fein headquarters in Belfast to a secret IRA house for interrogation and execution. Guarded by three armed men, he dived from a third floor in a desperate bid for freedom. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
