About the Author

Jack Higgins lives on Jersey in the Channel Islands.

Reviews

Action, betrayal, murder and mayhem have long been the staples of Jack Higgins's international thrillers featuring ex-IRA enforcer turned British operative Sean Dillon, and this latest outing continues that tradition. However, Dillon falls into more of a supporting role in a story involving the current Russian regime's efforts to bring forth a new type of cold war. Most of the heavy lifting is performed by the seemingly mild-mannered MP Harry Miller, who, like Dillon, is in reality a British secret agent. Michael Page's narration keeps the action flowing, all the while balancing an international cast of heroes and rogues. Whether the characters are Russian politicos or Irish thugs, British elites or Islamic terrorists, Page provides each with their own particular voice. With a dry, straightforward delivery, he is equally adept in presenting the intricate, globe-trotting plot, driving the story forward and maintaining the taut suspense. Fans of this enduring series will not be disappointed. A Putnam hardcover (Reviews, June 23). (Sept.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Higgins, the principal pseudonym of British novelist Henry Patterson, presents his 15th Sean Dillon thriller, following The Killing Ground. A British agent shooting a Russian soldier trying to torch a Kosovo mosque sets in motion escalating retaliatory actions affecting the United States. Higgins fans may savor the action and adventure, but the stock characters and predictable dialog make this one of the author's lesser works. Actor/narrator Michael Page, who previously read two other titles in this series for Phoenix Audio--Dark Justice and Without Mercy--delivers another consistent, character-driven performance. Recommended only where Higgins has a large fan base. [The Putnam hc was recommended as "of interest in all public libraries," LJ 7/08.--Ed.]--Sandy Glover, Camas P.L., WA Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
