He decides to get out but before he can do so he has to carry out one final mission…and it almost is is last.

It is 1970 and Jamie Raeburn has put his dark past behind him...or so he thinks. But a secret U.S. document passed to Ultra, a clandestine British Security Organisation, revives his nightmare.
Confronted with his past Jamie joins Ultra and becomes one of the organisation’s top assassins, the Archangels, carrying out a series of assassinations in Northern Ireland as the U.K. Government tries to destabilise both Nationalist and Loyalist factions. He compartmentalises his life, living as two people; Jamie Raeburn, husband and father, and Michael Messenger, State sponsored assassin, until one day he is ordered to kill a man whose life doesn't fit the terrorist persona Jamie expected. He begins to question what he is doing and decides it is time to get out. But no Archangel simply "leaves" Ultra. In an explosive conclusion Jamie faces an IRA execution squad, outnumbered and outmanoeuvred...and they knew he was coming. Someone wants him dead, but who...and why?
This book will keep you awake. A very enjoyable read.
Could not wait for the second book as the Janus Complex was great this one just the same now can't wait for third book. Really caught up with the character. Well written.
