In this riveting sequel to Adrian McKinty's acclaimed debut, Dead I Well May Be, mercenary bad boy Michael Forsythe is back - the hero other writers can only aspire to create (Ed McBain). While on holiday in Spain, Michael Forsythe is arrested in the chaos of a soccer riot and hauled off to jail. Back on the wrong side of the law, the Belfast native has no hope of release - until a seductive female British Intelligence Agent makes Michael an offer he can't refuse: Avoid jail time in a Mexican hellhole by taking on a special FBI assignment and infiltrating a dangerous Irish terrorist cell back in the States. Within hours Michael is thrust into the nightmarish world of madmen known for their distinctive brands of torture and revenge - all while trying to hide his true identity. Coming face-toface with murder, deceit, and lustful desire in all the wrong places, Michael knows that in order to survive he must kill... or be killed.
