Perennial P60 Ossian's Ride FINE
Ossian's Ride By Fred Hoyle Cover by Ratzkin
Written in 1959, set in 1970, this is the story of mysterious events occurring on the Emerald Isle.
In the short span of ten years, a powerful new industrialization has grown up in the west of Ireland: I.C.E. (Industrial Corporation Eire). Behind its own rigidly controlled "Erin Curtain," its scientists have solved many of the major problems with which the rest of the scientific world is still futilely grappling. The face of Ireland is being transformed, but more important to the great powers is the inherent menace these prodigies of scientific achievement may offer to the delicat ebalance of power in a badly divided world.
All attempts to discover the origin, nature and purpose of I.C.E. are easily thwarted by the Irish Secret Service and the company's own intelligence section -- until young Thomas Sherwood is sent by MI-5 to investigate. Sherwood immediately finds himself in a world of violence. He is pursued across Ireland by spies and counterspies, double agents and triple agents. He tangles with still other agents - the thieving kind - who are stealing scientific information to sell to the highest bidder. It's one man against armies. Can an Englishman persevere?
