It is the first uncertain year of the peace process in Northern Ireland, a land ravaged by centuries of religious and political conflict. On a single night, a renegade group of Protestant extremists tries to turn back the hands of time with three savage acts of terrorism. Retired CIA officer Michael Osbourne, is lured back to the Agency after his father-in-law, former U.S. Senator Douglas Cannon, is nominated to be the new American ambassador to London. When Michael discovers that the Protestant gunmen have marked Cannon for execution, he sets in motion a deadly contest of wits and deception that will determine whether the peace in Northern Ireland will survive and whether his father-in-law lives or dies.

What Michael Osbourne does not realize is that he is a pawn in a much larger game. Once again, his destiny is controlled by the Society, a secret order that uses its power and influence to foster global unrest for financial gain. And once again, he is pitted against his personal bête noire, Jean-Paul Delaroche, the world's most dangerous assassin. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " So msny organizations, SO MANY characters. Just a bit tedious at times, but not bad . . . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 2/16/2014

    " I picked this one up on the cruise ship's book exchange shelf while on vacation. It is one of Silva's earlier books and it is pretty good, although, I don't think that it is one of his best---but after all, it didn't cost me a cent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete | 2/9/2014

    " Silva at his best here. The novel perfectly brings closure to the storyline initiated with Mark of the Assassin. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Opa | 2/8/2014

    " This book was disappointing due to all of the superfluous f-bombs. I think Silva learns to use other words in his later books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle Ou | 2/5/2014

    " Hate the overuse of F-words and profanity. Not needed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 1/29/2014

    " Read out of order. Didn't realize I had the one before it. good read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 1/18/2014

    " Nancy 3 stars; Ron 3 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carlos Santos | 1/17/2014

    " It started off with good pace and just kept on going. Never a dull moment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chuck | 1/8/2014

    " Sequel, of sorts, to Assassin. Osbourne's father-in-law, Senator Douglas Cannon, is named Ambassador to England following further terrorist activity in Northern Ireland. Promising story but the ending is convoluted and weak. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James McLaughlin | 12/29/2013

    " Another very entertaining Silva spy novel with an ending I would have never suspected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Erwin | 12/13/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christiana Moffa | 11/29/2013

    " Daniel Silva's books are ALL must reads. Period. This one, if I remember correctly because it's been awhile, features an ex-CIA agent who is sent to Ireland to get to the bottom of the Northern/Southern Irish terrorist acts, which are heightened during what is called "The Marching Season." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bettynz | 11/16/2013

    " Totally compulsive reading. I even took it to work today in case I had a free moment, I was that near the end! In some other universe!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 9/18/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 9/6/2013

    " I like Daniel Silva who generally writes about an Israeli agent. This book, however, is about the Irish. It is gory, but good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Valvo | 8/3/2013

    " I like these thrillers---am just beginning this one, good so far. Lived up to expectations...quick read, exciting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Burt | 7/17/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 6/6/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 10/28/2012

    " Although I like Gabriel Allon (his other series hero), it was interesting to read about another of his protagonists. Good thriller read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renny | 5/23/2011

    " This book is a worthy sequel to The Mark of The Assassin. In fact, put together with the second book the story is substantially strengthened. "

    " Really enjoyed this book. A strange twist made it even more interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanya | 1/29/2011

    " The story starts out slow but the excitement builds in the second half of the book. A great deal of info on the conflict in Northern Ireland. I prefer the Allon books but one of the characters , October, appears in this book also. A satisfying read. "
