On its surface Skellig Michael reads like a fast-paced international thriller involving crimes in high office, terrorism threats, espionage, corporate takeover battles, sex, lust, poignant romance, chase scenes, and shootouts. But readers who probe deeper may find the novel more provocative and complex than they initially thought. And in the end they may decide—as the protagonists themselves do—that the rocky landscape of the novel is a metaphor for life.
