Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. The fifteen stories were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of the Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century.
The stories were written at the time when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They center on Joyce’s idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character has a special moment of self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce’s novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by children as protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce’s tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity.

A series of mysterious narcotics-related homicides suddenly caught the attention of the International Intelligence Agencies when drug mules from all over the world started to turn up dead in perplexing situations.
As they continue to die, the British MI4 is determined to know what’s going down. But so is the CIA and the Australian Intelligence. And so is the Denmark Intelligence and the French Intelligence, who have also encountered the couriers of death.
Was it just a coincidence? Or was there a sinister justification for these uncanny occurrences? MI4 Chief Colin Shooter believes there’s a sinister justification behind the unfortunate couriers. He’s a stickler, who never gives up on a conundrum and he’s absolute determined to see things through.
But he needs an agent teeming with world-class, international espionage experience; a guy who knows his stuff like the back of his hand.
And if that means collaborating with old antagonist, Special Agent Jason Clay all over again, it won’t be the end of the world.
Set in London, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Paris, Miami, Australia, Barbados, Houston, Copenhagen, Singapore, The Netherlands, South Carolina and Atlanta, it’s espionage at its very best!
It’s espionage as you’ve never seen it before!
