The General's Daughter
Captain Ann Campbell is a West Point graduate, the daughter of legendary General "Fighting Joe" Campell. One morning, her body is found, naked and bound, on the firing range. Paul Brenner is a member of the army's elite undercover investigative unit and the man in charge of this politically explosive case.

St. Patrick's Day, New York City. Everyone is celebrating, but everyone is in for the shock of his life. Born into the heat of the Northern Ireland conflict, IRA man Brian Flynn has masterminded a brilliant terrorist act-the seizure of Saint Patrick's Cathedral. As the hostages face death, Flynn faces his own demons, in duel of honor and betrayal....

The Talbot Odyssey
For forty years Western intelligence agents have known a terrible secret: the Russians have a mole-code-named Talbot-inside the CIA. Engineered by Talbot, a shadow world of suspicion and deceit is spilling onto the streets-leading to a new Soviet weapon and a first-strike war plan threatening the foundations of American government.

  • Book Rating: 4/5

My husband & I both loved "The Generals Daughter". The first book of the three. The second 2 where good however, I have a hard time trying to remember who is who when too many characters are introduced. I needed to take notes as to who all the different names where. But since I was driving I could not take notes and therefore got lost as to who did what to whom. If I had a better memory I am sure my enjoyment for the second two books: Cathedral & The Talbot Odyssey would have been much higher. Each of these books where completely different then the last. Which is nice since some authors seem to follow the same formula for each of their books.
