About the Book

This is a story about charm, passion and guile, about the manipulation of ordinary people and the concealment of extraordinary events, but above all it is about revenge, deceit and brutal determination. In short it is about human nature. As the one hundredth anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin looms on Britain's uncertain horizon, a resurgent Irish Republican Army plans a spectacular London attack to launch its latest and final campaign for a united Ireland. Its success depends on the skills and innate charisma of a Cleanskin living and working under deep cover, and the murderous and time-honored links of an IRA elder to senior Middle-Eastern terrorists. It is a marriage of convenience conceived in hell, and it spawns a scheme that would cause the devil himself to look away.

Easter, Smoke and Mirrors is the first part of the Cleanskin Apologues. It puts stark and chilling images to every government's worst nightmare and asks unanswerable questions of trusting citizens...
