    I enjoyed this excellent read. The author's pacing of the plot, with its numerous twists and turns, makes the storyline even and easy to follow. Also, the military and espionage terminology in A Known Enemy was understandable for someone like myself who does not have an extensive knowledge of the subject. The locales in Canada and Ireland are uniquely descriptive. I felt like I was right there. And the reappearance of several characters from Webb's previous work, The Arch Deceiver, added to the intrigue and suspense. A thoroughly entertaining book, which I recommend. I give G.C. Webb's A known Enemy a five star rating.

    A Known Enemy By G.C. Webb Pub: There can be no doubt that Canadian author, Gordon Webb’s experience as a legal officer, security analyst and peace officer provide the background detail that lends credibility to a novel featuring terrorism, treachery and covert intelligence. In his second novel, A Known Enemy, Webb reprises Ian Munro, the protagonist of his first novel, as an increasingly senior member of the Canadian Intelligence community in pursuit of a vicious female IRA terrorist nicknamed the Hag. Webb takes up his latest work with the thwarted Hag leading her IRA splinter group towards a take-over of the IRA from Cork and Dublin while harbouring bitter plans for revenge against Canada, and Munro in particular. The first third of A Known Enemy sees the efforts of The Hag to snatch leadership of the IRA from its current leaders foiled by Irish Intel services in collaboration with British and Canadian groups. The remainder of the novel sees The Hag transferred to... More > Canada for trial in Vancouver, escaping justice and being returned to Ireland of her own volition. The apparent freedom with which her terrorist gang murder key witnesses and destroy former bolt holes within a few kilometres of the BC capital is, at least alarming. Webb’s intimate knowledge of the large range of weaponry accessible to terrorist groups, and their range and destructive ability in the hands of, almost always, expert operatives on both sides add interesting side-bars that enhance the action. Webb’s novel draws attention to lesser-known globally linked intelligence services and the terrorist activities that go largely unheeded in a media currently obsessed with Islamophobic issues. His next novel should see a brutal showdown between Munro and The Hag, but where and how this will take place remains a challenge worth waiting for.< Less
