Publisher's Summary

St. Patrick's Day, New York City. Everyone is celebrating, but everyone is in for a shock. Born into the heat and hatred of the Northern Ireland conflict, IRA man Brian Flynn has masterminded a brilliant terrorist act: the seizure of Saint Patrick's Cathedral. Among his hostages: the woman Brian Flynn once loved, a former terrorist turned peace activist. Among his enemies: an Irish-American police lieutenant fighting against a traitor inside his own ranks and a shadowy British intelligence officer pursuing his own cynical, bloody plan.The cops face a booby-trapped, perfectly laid out killing zone inside the church. The hostages face death. Flynn faces his own demons, in an electrifying duel of nerves, honor, and betrayal.

Not even close to DeMille's other books

Boring, but at least it was read by Scott Brick! If you're a DeMille fan you'll be very disappointed in this book. I stuck with it thinking it would get good at some point, but no such luck!

this was gratuitous DeMille

I have read most of his other books and he is one of my favorite authors, this was not of that calibre. this was a difficult book to get into, and truthfully nothing stuck with me - easily forgettable and disappointing.
