Description
Jack Higgins “doesn’t stint on action” (Publishers Weekly) in this New York Times bestseller featuring black ops specialist Sean Dillon.

On a Long Island pier, a trusted operative for the President is wounded by gunfire. In London, an adviser to the Prime Minister approaches his car when it explodes. In New York, British soldier-turned covert operative Sean Dillon is approached by a man with a pistol in his hand...
Someone is targeting members of an elite intelligence unit known as “the Prime Minister's private army” and all those who work with them. The culprit has a full complement of resources at his command—and Dillon has an idea of who it may be: an old nemesis out to destroy the unit out once and for all. But proving it will be difficult. And surviving it might be impossible.

        November 2, 2009
        In bestseller Higgins's exciting 17th Sean Dillon thriller (after A Darker Place
        ), Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin is behind a plot to kill Dillon and other members of the British prime minister's private intelligence army as payback for their being such a thorn in his side over the years. In London, Gen. Charles Ferguson, who's just left a late-night meeting of Commonwealth ministers, is walking toward his car when it explodes, killing his driver. In New York City, Maj. Harry Miller, who's in the U.S. to attend a U.N. meeting, goes for a stroll in Central Park, where he neatly turns the tables on a hired hit man. Extensive flashbacks explain how the attacks on each of the marked men evolved, with much space devoted to the chief assassin, Daniel Holley. Higgins provides a more cerebral story than usual, but he doesn't stint on action. Though most of the plot threads tie up nicely, the ending makes clear that readers will be seeing Holley again.
