General Charles Ferguson, Commander of the British Prime Minister's private hit squad and adviser to the new president of the United States, has been given a disturbing recording from Afghanistan, on which the murders of American Army Rangers and a British medical team are recorded. About half of the Taliban force voices on the tape are British. One authoritative voice is Irish; code name: Shamrock.
Shocked that one of their own could be responsible for a massacre, General Ferguson tasks Sean Dillon with hunting the traitor. But even as Dillon goes to war, the war is coming to him...

Jack Higgins lives on Jersey in the Channel Islands.From Booklist:
Sean Dillon, the former IRA soldier and missionary who now works for the British government, has another tough case on his hands. In Afghanistan, a unit of American soldiers and British medicos were ambushed. Some of the attackers were British-born Muslims, which is bad enough, but it appears their leader might be a mysterious Irishman who calls himself Shamrock. Against his better judgment, Dillon reaches out to an expert on the Irish element: Daniel Holley, an assassin who once nearly killed Dillon. This is an especially dialogue-heavy novel—much of the action is implied, or takes place off camera—perhaps because the author is interested in exploring the relationship between Dillon and Holley. Like the previous Dillon novel, The Wolf at the Door (2010), this one is slower paced, more introspective, and frankly, not quite as engaging as some of the earlier entries in the series. Fans, however, will want to see Dillon through to the end. --David Pitt
