Set in Northern Ireland where the IRA is both underground and active, this is a tale of two sisters who become entangled with the IRA. The focus is on Tessa, who is a BBC producer and single mother, who is initially shocked to discover that her sister Marian is both in the IRA and an informant. As the story progresses, Tessa also becomes involved with both activities, helping the IRA on one hand and informing an MI5 agent on the other. Tessa is driven to these conflicted behavior by her need to protect her young son and wanting a better future for him. Overall, this is a great read and highly recommended.… (more)

Wow. This is a really well crafted mystery. The main character is the sister of the murder victim and not since Wuthering heights has there been a more unreliable narrator. At times I found myself not just wondering if she'd done it, but wondering if she had a sister or there really was a murder. The hints about her reliability are fairly subtle, but definitely there. A great accomplishment for any writer, but for a first time novelist, an amazing job

I enjoyed this story. It was different than most spy books, and left me wondering how true to life it was. But then, are any of those spy books true to life, lol?

Twisty and fairly interesting but I enjoyed her Irish spy book more than this one
