CORNWELL, Bernard. Scoundrel. London : Michael Joseph, (1992). First British Edition. Pp (8),3-[311],(3). 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Bernard Cornwell, OBE (b. February 23, 1944, London). "Paul Shanahan earns half a living as a jack of all the marine trades. The other half is a rish-American living in exile in Belgium, he has been suspected of IRA activity. He's also been accused of being a CIA agent. Shanahan, in short, is a scoundrel. Three weeks after Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, Shanahan is asked to deliver a boat from the Mediterranean to America. Its cargo is gold and his fee will be considerable. Ostensibly the gold has nothing to do with the Gulf War and everything to do with the Irish Troubles, but Shanahan hashis suspicions. He also has his eye a pension fund that will enable him to retire to his beloved Cape Cod, there to catch tuna and watch the sun set across the dunes. It was never going to be easy. Obstacles take the concrete - and murderous - form of the IRA, their Boston supporters, his own country's intelligence services, the British, and Saddam Hussein's Palestinian allies. Shanahan is also defying the ghost of his lost love, Roisin, inconveniently and painfully brought to life in the person of her inquisitive sister, Kathleen. Scoundrel plunges deep into the world of terror and those whowield it - for patriotism, greed or simple despair; a world where no man's loyalty is absolute, where every shadow can kill, and where nothing, not e ven gold, can be trusted." (from the dj). Very good in unclipped dustjacket. Signed without inscription by the aiuthor. 150.00
