Car bombs shatter a neighbourhood in Ottawa. With Canada about to host a G8 Conference, the Prime Minster knows he must react fast. He orders Lt. Col. Ian Munro, a senior agent in CSIS and a reserve army officer, to locate and neutralize the perpetrators.
Munro forms a small, secretive unit. They soon uncover an international conspiracy: Irish Republican Army dissidents have linked up with a rogue Special Forces unit. Both seek vengeance and political power.
Worried about a resurgence of the IRA, especially a splinter group led by a firebrand called the Hag, Britain sends an MI6 officer to Canada. Complicating Munro’s mission, the spy from the Secret Intelligence Service is a former lover. To add to his troubles, an enemy appears from his past, determined to destroy him.

This engrossing story about a multi-ethnic team of intelligence agents tracking down an equally diverse group of insurgents, gangsters and war criminals is a great read.
I especially enjoyed the unique, often colourful, characters and how each contributes to the plot. The comprehensive, vivid descriptions of the book’s many locales are also impressive.
Webb’s first work of fiction is a winner.
I give it a five star rating.
