Hey guys! As many of you know I'm writing a novel. I've come up with the premise for a new idea, I'm looking to give it some scope, depth... etc. My latest involves four British Special Forces operatives being drafted in by the Security Services to work on an operation to track down four operatives of an Active Service Unit of the IRA planning to assassinate heads of the British Armed Forces. They're working in tandem with Protection Command, specifically SO1, or Specialist Protection that operates from the Close Protection Unit, Royal Military Police. The Increment is purely a rumour and there has never been any acknowledgement by the British Government - its operations are supposedly overseen by the Security Services. My four operatives are recruited into The Increment, what I'm looking for is something to make it more 'dark and mysterious', something to make it a deniable op, perhaps these IRA men have outside help? Not quite sure what else? Thanks, hawky.
