St. Patrick's Day, New York City. Everyone is celebrating, but everyone is in for the shock of his life. Born into the heat and hatred of the Northern Ireland conflict, IRA man Brian Flynn has masterminded a brilliant terrorist act - the seizure of Saint Patrick's Cathedral. Among his hostages: the woman Brian Flynn once loved, a former terrorist turned peace activist. Among his enemies: an Irish-American police lieutenant fighting against a traitor inside his own ranks and a shadowy British intelligence officer pursuing his own cynical, bloody plan. The cops face a booby-trapped, perfectly laid out killing zone inside the church. The hostages face death. Flynn faces his own demons, in an electrifying duel of nerves, honor, and betrayal.

I can't say I really enjoyed this story anywhere as much as 'The General's Daughter.' This was written in 1981 so it reads like a historical piece which I suppose could just as easily describe me. The novel is glacially paced and the perceived threat is never enunciated so you can never feel the suspense really ratchet up.

Think I started this book several years ago. Don't know why i didn't finish it then, mustn't have started it because I am so glad I gave it a second chance. Couldn't put it down. Very exciting, very suspenseful - lots of action.

Fun book and it's one of DeMille's shortest, which works to its advantage in this case. Good plot, a bit of dilly dallying with the whole Irish background but overall an okay read
