"Spring 1915. As the Great War burns its way across Europe, Jack McColl, a spy for His Majesty's Navy, is stationed in India, charged with defending the Empire against Bengali terrorists and their German allies. In England, meanwhile, suffragette journalist Caitlin Hanley begins the business of rebuilding her life after the execution of her brother, an Irish republican sympathizer whose plot Jack McColl--Caitlin's ex-lover--had foiled. The war is changing everything, and giving fresh impulse to those causes--feminism, socialism and Irish independence--which she as a journalist has long supported. The threat of a Rising in Dublin alarms McColl's bosses as much as it dazzles Caitlin. It was one Irish plot which came between Jack and Caitlin in 1914, and it will take another to bring them back together, as both enemies and lovers"-- Provided by publisher.

It was an entertaining read but it often felt as if the thoughts and beliefs of the characters were a little too omniscient as to the outcomes of political events that were unfolding around them. I did not find a single instance where a character's thinking and opinions about the future impact of historical events was not spot-on. It felt as if the author was trying to force in historical outcomes and parallels and which, while accurate, ultimately detracted from the narrative style.

Really enjoyed, it captured segments of eras in India, England & Ireland far better than expected. Character development was natural, rather than superficial. Narrative was fluid, no hitches in pace or thought. Will look for more by this author.
