In Operation Large Scotch by author Bill Flockhart, we’re transported to Northern Ireland, back in time to 1982, where a twelve-year-old boy, John Johnson, witnessed something that changed his life. Because of all the trouble in Northern Ireland, John’s father realized he was in grave danger, so John was shipped off to South Africa to live with his mother. John’s father remains in Northern Ireland and accidentally stumbles on an IRA plot to hold the British Government to ransom by planting bombs in Scottish whiskey distilleries and bond warehouses. He sends a disc containing the information to his son in South Africa the day before he is assassinated. The unfolding events involve the British Government, MI5, American IRA sympathizers, Mossad, the Israeli secret service, who all have their own agenda for this plot. Years go by until John comes to England to a rugby match at Twickenham and by chance meets a high-ranking British officer, Colin Inglis, who was involved in what John witnessed when he was twelve. See how all these events are linked together in this exciting story.

In Operation Large Scotch, Bill Flockhart delves into a time in Northern Ireland where the troubles between the IRA and British soldiers are the center of this story. The author gives great insight into the different factions involved and he takes you into the mind of the army officer Colin Inglis who is leading an ambush that goes horribly wrong. There are lots of individual characters that are all linked together in different ways to form the story, which transports you between Northern Ireland, Scotland, London, South Africa, and America. The events that occur are fast-moving and in some places time critical, and this keeps you on the edge of your seat as you uncover what happens next. The author's style of writing gets you involved and brings out your own emotions; an enjoyable read for fans of thrillers and conspiracies.
