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.

Very good book. A bit graphic in some of the details, but well written.
