'Engaging and enjoyable. A must read for soldiers and civilians.' - Damien Lewis.
Killing comes easy to Michael Devlin, a soldier turned assassin.
When he murders Martin Pound, a corrupt politician, he considers it to be just another job.
His days are spent drinking, reading and visiting his late wife's grave. Devlin has nothing to live for.
Then he meets Emma, "a good Catholic girl". Everyone deserves a second chance.
But the hunter is about to become the hunted.
The Parker brothers, the criminal family who put the hit out on the politician, want to tie-up loose ends.
Devlin must kill or be killed.
