THE SIRIUS CROSSING - John Creed
Set in Ireland our hero, Jack Valentine, a cross between James Bond and 22 SAS, takes on one last job. This involves locating a body that was buried in Northern Ireland in the 70's ,one that should not have been there and recovering a package.
Along the way he enlists the help of loyalists and provo's alike as well as most intelligence agencies around the world.
A highlight involves a channel crossing in a major storm in Valentines converted trawler.
It is far fetched, very , but very readable. Its well written, Creed is the pen name of Eoin McNamee. Worth the effort and as it only cost me fifty cents at a book fair complaining would be miserable in the extreme. (Published 2002)
