LoveReading View on Ambush
I liked the developing relationship between an American doctor and the Irish policeman here in this strong, drug-related thriller with lots of pace. Itâ€™s got something a little bit different.

Scott Nolan enjoys a flourishing career as a doctor, a rising media profile as a persuasive campaigner against drug abuse, and a beautiful new wife. But one wintry Dublin morning Scott's life is changed forever when contract killer Sean Kennedy and his team of assassins attempt a daring double ambush on Ireland's anti-drugs minister and his medical spokesman.
The attacks end in chaos, leaving a trail of destruction and death. Scott vows revenge. But how can one man take on Ireland's notoriously ruthless drug barons? Desperate to claim back his life and find the killers Scott enters an uneasy alliance with his wife's brother, Detective Mark Higgins. Doctor and detective then embark on a highly controversial international covert mission to track down the leader of the murder gang. Using secret US army interrogation compounds and breaking almost every law in the land, the duo finally close in on their target. As Ambush moves towards its violent climax, Paul Carson takes the reader on a white-knuckle ride of treachery, double-crossing and murder in this incredibly powerful thriller.
