Praise for Phil Mac Giolla Bháin’s previous books:

THE SQUAD is a fast-paced spy adventure thriller set in Ireland’s post-conflict landscape and against the backdrop of the global War on Terror. After suicide bombings in Dublin, two ex-Provos affected by the bombing join the frantic race against time to find other would-be martyrs. They are joined by an old adversary – a retired Special Branch officer – and two newcomers to Ireland; a doctor from Morocco and a young, Polish ex-soldier, also affected by the blast. All that stands between Ireland and certain carnage is this unlikely alliance of misfits.
