They call themselves "January 30," after the date of a British massacre in Belfast. They are allied with no one, killing American diplomats and KGB agents, Arabs and Israelis, IRA gunmen and Loyalist soldiers. But they are definitely the enemies of peace - and they are plotting an assassination that will shatter the uneasy truce that reigns in Ireland. Former IRA enforcer Sean Dillon must hunt down January 30 before they kill again. Before they spark another war. Before Dillon himself falls prey to the ultimate assassin - the Angel of Death.
"Ferguson and Dillon function much like Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin: Ferguson is the at-home brain...a la Wolfe, and Dillon is a violent, coldhearted version of Archie. Toss in elements of the Russian Mafia, leftover KGB agents, and a black-hearted actress, and one has a novel that will keep international conspiracy buffs turning pages long into the night."
