Publisher's Summary

As a member of the Counter Terrorist Unit, Sean Doyle thought he'd seen it all. Every violent act, every depraved action man could perpetrate against man but he is to discover that there are much worse things in this world than even he has encountered.
Tracking a group of renegade terrorists from London to the Republic of Ireland, Doyle and his partner must discover who is funding these men and why. What he discovers is beyond even his experience and threatens not just his life but his sanity too.
The trail of terror leads not just across Britain but to France as well where the monstrous deeds of a murderer who died four hundred years earlier still cast a dark and horrific shadow. In the grisly frames of a stained glass window taken from the home of this vile killer lay the secret sought by so many for so long. The secret of immortality. And one man will stop at nothing to get it.
Sean Doyle is about to meet that man. Modern terrorism meets Medieval madness in a jaw-dropping climax that will make the living envy the dead...

Almost like stepping back in time

Shaun Hutson's 1993 political thriller is finally given the audiobook treatment and listening to this is akin to going back twenty years to a dark time in Ireland's history.

Counter terrorist officer Sean Doyle is on the tale of IRA members following the massacre's at Stormont & Windsor Park with the help of fellow officer Georgie Willis. The story is typical Hutson (plenty of violence, high body count & a couple of sex scenes) and flows nicely, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith is excellent accent wise and does a good job with the characters (especially Doyle).

All in all a very good political thriller from an author more well known for his horror stories...
