Winner of an Audie® and an Earphones® Award.

In this sequel to the acclaimed Dead I Well May Be, mercenary Michael Forsythe is forced to infiltrate an Irish terrorist cell, confronting murder, mayhem, and possibly his own execution.
Michael is on holiday in Spain when a soccer riot escalates out of control and he winds up in a Spanish prison. Enter Samantha, a beautiful British Intelligence agent. She makes Michael an offer he can’t refuse: instead of extradition to Mexico to serve time for a prison break, he can infiltrate an IRA sleeper cell in the United States. Thrust into the nightmare world of men known for their distinctive brands of torture and revenge, Michael crosses and double-crosses key players, narrowly escapes his own lies, loses his only ally, and falls for the daughter of his enemy.
