THE FOURTH HISTORICAL CRIME FICTION NOVEL
BY MICK O’DONNELL
DUE FOR RELEASE IN EASTER 2018
Pat O’Neill, a retired AFP detective becomes obsessed with a woman he calls ‘Angel Eyes,’ after he is caught up in the bombing of a commuter train in Madrid in March 2004.
His expertise in counter terrorist activities leads him to be re-sworn as a Special Agent and sent to Afghanistan to track down a radicalized Australian.
The quest becomes more than a ‘capture and arrest’ when he is told that the terrorists are also developing a powerful weapon that will forever change the world’s understanding of mobilization.
While Pat is away, his long-time partner, Sergeant Ginger Winslow becomes involved in a related investigation. She is physically threatened by criminal elements who fear their drug supply from Afghanistan will be interrupted.
Pat is injured, and he questions the value of his contribution. Even the brief respite that Pat and Ginger enjoy in Istanbul is fraught with danger. It seems that the terrorists are waiting for him at every turn.
This is an exciting and tension-filled story of personal failures, fears and doubts, set in a world of evil that few of us will every experience.
