No there wasn't. Mullone started life as an intelligence officer in my unpublished Egyptian novel and is a slightly different character to that in Liberty or Death/The Emerald Graves as it was written 2006-2008. I'll change it. Basically when I wrote LOD I needed him to be more compassionate to the cause as he is Irish and has seen the horrors of warfare for many years. He is wise, intelligent and gentle, but he's a soldier still as he shows his prowess at new Ross. Cahill is his sidekick. A different character and it was fun part to write him in. Mullone needed someone who he can rely on. Cahill is Mullone's right-hand man. Together they're a team and inseperable.
