Three terrorist attacks in one day threaten Northern Ireland's peace talks. When his father-in-law, Douglas Cannon, is named ambassador to London, former CIA officer Michael Osbourne returns to the field to investigate. This abridgment favors narrative passages and interior monologue over dialogue. This gives Campbell Scott few chances to show vocal skills, but he finds dramatic opportunities inside the minds of Osbourne and his quarry, the assassin October. Extensive music highlights this production. In spots, it overpowers Scott's narration but is usually effective in conveying shifting mood or locale--introducing hints of Greek or Moroccan melodies as the action moves to those countries--and creating a cinematic feel.
