Sean Doyle is no stranger to violence. As a member of the Counter Terrorist Unit he's seen more than his fair share of it.

And it seems his intimate acquaintance with death and brutality is set to continue, as he investigates the hijack of an army weapons convoy in Northern Ireland. Managing to infiltrate the organisation, he soon makes some disturbing discoveries: the body of an IRA informer stuffed with heroin, and an IRA safe house full of Chinese Triads.

With a wave of violence sweeping across Britain, Doyle soon realises the stakes have been raised to an alarming degree. The evidence points to an unholy war between two Triad groups with the IRA behind one of them. Motive? Only Doyle can find out, and he must do so before the carnage spirals out of control...

Review:

Skilfully unpleasant... a compulsively disturbing shocker (SUNDAY TIMES)

It's suffused with explicit, heavy-duty violence. And who can fail to warm to an author who gives equal weight to quotes from John Keats, Nietzsche and Iron Maiden? (THR DARK SIDE)

The man who writes what others are afraid even to imagine (SUNDAY TIMES)

Shaun Hutson is a true voice of horror in the nineties (SUNDAY EXPRESS)

As a creator of unpretentious balls-out shockers, he's unbeatable (TIME OUT)

Probably the most complete novel yet from a writer who deserves wider credit than he is usually accored... Arguably the UK's best horror writer (Ultrakill)

A well-structured, tightly plotted thriller (Eastern Daily Press)

Hutson makes a canny move sideways with this relentless narrative that enters contemporary thriller territory... breathless action (PUBLISHING NEWS)

Here we have one of the successful literary careers of the day (Private Eye)

Shaun Hutson writes in a way that is both compelling and exciting and the energy of his storytelling is awesome (City Lites)

Synopsis:

There are new enemies in Britain that nobody knows how to deal with. They are the Triad gangs and they deal in heroin. While investigating a weapons hijack, Sean Doyle - a member of the Counter Terrorist Unit - has a chance to infiltrate the Triads. He then discovers that one gang has IRA support.
