When a new Protestant extremist group shatters the Good Friday peace accords with three savage acts of terrorism, Northern Ireland is blown back into the depths of conflict. And after his father-in-law is nominated to become the new American ambassador to London, retired officer Michael Osbourne is drawn back into the CIA.

Then Osbourne uncovers a dark plan that marks his father-in-law for execution, setting into motion a deadly chain of events that will thrust him back into the sights of the most merciless assassin the world has ever known. Osbourne escaped this ruthless killing machine once–but the elusive October will never allow him to slip through his crosshairs again. . . .
