Description
Jack Higgins, the undisputed master of action and suspense is back with a brand new adventure featuring the unstoppable Sean Dillon. For intelligence operative Sean Dillon, it is a routine passport check. But the events it will lead to will be as bloody as any he has ever known. The man he stops at Heathrow airport is Caspar Rashid, born and bred in England, but with family ties to a Bedouin tribe fiercely wedded to the old ways, as Rashid has just found out to his pain. His thirteen-year-old daughter, Sara, has been kidnapped by Rashid's own father and taken to Iraq to be married to a man known as the 'Hammer of God', one of the Middle East's most feared terrorists. Dillon has had his own run-ins with the tribe, and when the distraught man begs him for help, he sees a chance to settle some old scores - but Dillon has no idea of the terrible chain of events he is about to unleash, nor of the implacable enemies he is about to gain. Before his journey is done, many men will die - and Dillon may be one of them. - Jack Higgins is one of the biggest selling names in thriller fiction with over 200 million copies of his novels in print - Recent novels such as, 'Bad Company', 'Toll For The Brave' and 'Dark Justice' have seen a significant resurgence in his sales. All have been instant bestsellers in both the UK and the USA - Higgins' previous novel, 'Without Mercy' shot straight into The Sunday Times bestseller and spent five weeks in the top ten
