Frank Barry is a terrorist of the highest order. His ideology is money, and his track record is flawless. When the Russians want review copies of the latest NATO missile system, Barry is the man to deliver them.
Martin Brosnan is a poet, scholar, and killer. Trained in Vietnam, then polished in the ranks of the IRA, he now languishes in the French prison fortress of Belle Isle.
Liam Devlin is Brosnan's best and oldest friend. Devlin wants Brosnan out of jail and on Barry's trail, and he'll use everything in his power to get his way.
