I really enjoyed this book, I started reading it without even reading the blurb or having any idea what it was about really but it soon became very obvious it was about the war in Belfast with the IRA and the English. It follows Harry as he enters IRA territory undercover to find the murderer (assassin) of a English politician. Its interesting to read the views and activities that were common at the time in Belfast. I think the fact this book was first published back in 1975 also helps it along with being quite realistic about the IRA and the way impostors were tortured and murdered if discovered. Throughout the book the fear you feel for Harry is what compels you to keep turning the pages in the hope that eventually he’ll get to go home to his wife and children.
Basically absolutely brilliant!
