Product Description:

The "journeyman tailor" of the title is a figure of myth who betrayed the legendary Shane Bearnagh Donnelly to the English dragoons, and is the ghostly presence in this thriller. Set in Ireland, this is the story of an informer in an IRA cell and his handlers in British Intelligence.

Review:

Finely written with tension, action, suspense, atmosphere and topical authenticity ( Sunday Telegraph)

The pace is relentless... With such writing, Seymour deservedly ranks among today's top thriller writers ( Sunday Express)

A dark, rainswept novel, full of excitement and the vicious amorality of patriotism ( The New Yorker)

It's many years since I have been so gripped by a thriller ( Daily Telegraph)
