The Trojan Boy

(1988)
A novel by

 
 
The mysterious letter invited him to an interview for a job he'd never applied for. But at 37, his family life and medical career in ruins, Dr Mark Avedissian wasn't feeling like asking too many questions.

Nor, it turned out, were British Intelligence, Avedissian's new employers, prepared to give many answers about his new role in their battle against terrorism. With minimal information they despatched him to America in the company of Kathleen, the sister of an IRA man Martin O'Neill, their brief to rescue a small boy, a child with a terrible destiny.

But in the turbulent events that followed, in the transatlantic struggle for the freedom of Ireland, British Intelligence proved to be every bit as ruthless as the IRA, and Avedissian and Kathleen dispensible pawns in a game that veered rapidly out of control . . .

Ken McClure is the internationally bestselling author of over twenty medical thrillers such as The Lazarus Strain, The Gulf Conspiracy, White Death and Dust to Dust. His books have been translated into twenty-three languages and he has earned a reputation for the accuracy of his predicitions. McClure's work is informed by his background as an award-winning research scientist with the UK's Medical Research Council.
