On Long Island, a trusted operative for the President nudges his boat up to a pier, when a man materializes out of the rain and shoots him. In London, General Charles Ferguson, adviser to the Prime Minister, approaches his car on a side street, when there is a flash, and the car explodes. In New York, a former British soldier, who is also a bit more than that, takes a short walk in Central Park to stretch his legs, when a man comes up fast behind him, a pistol in his hand.
And that is only the beginning. Someone is targeting the members of the elite intelligence unit known as “the Prime Minister’s private army” and all those who work with them, and whoever is doing it has a lot of resources at his command. Sean Dillon has an idea of who it may be, an old nemesis who has clearly gotten tired of their interference in his schemes. But proving it is going to be a difficult task. And surviving it the hardest task of all....

With just the right touch of ironic detachment, Michael Page narrates this seventeenth Sean Dillon thriller about spies, dark men, and dark deeds. Page's performance is devoid of theatrics and melodrama but not energy. His many accents--including Russian, Irish, and British--are clear and accomplished, and he uses them to subtly differentiate the characters. In an attempt at political revenge, Vladimir Putin and the Russians are trying to destroy the entire private intelligence unit of the British prime minister. After assassination attempts occur in several locations around the globe, Dillon must identify who is targeting this elite group of special agents and why. An engrossing performance. S.C.A.
