Overview

They've been inseparable partners ever since the day Gil Todd, a renowned British reporter, hauled a drunken Mickey Flynn out of a New York City bar and helped him become one of the world's most respected photojournalists. But their odd-couple relationship — as well as Flynn's life — is threatened when he gets shot covering a demonstration and a shard of bone lodges itself in his spine. Flynn faces a life of immobilising, excruciating pain.

Refusing to accept his career is over, Flynn agrees to do what may be his final shoot — photographing a terrorist training camp run by the PLA. But is he being used as a pawn by the terrorists, or by Israeli intelligence? And who is the mysterious Sinbad, known only by the terrifying, ingenious bombs he leaves behind? It's a good thing for Mickey Flynn he's got grit, determination and Gil Todd on his side. Or is it?

Critical Angle ( Jul.; 224 pp.; 0-7278-2288-8): Severn House's reprint program (Unlawful Entry, 1998, etc.) continues with this non-series novel, originally published in the US as Shards (1990), in which the author of the Castlemere procedurals (Broken Lines, p. 105) takes wounded photojournalist Mickey Flynn to Israel to photograph a PLO training camp—and, it could be, to get used in a deeper game than he understands.
