THE NEW HIGGINS HAS LANDED! The mesmerizing new Sean Dillon thriller of murder, terrorism and revenge from the Sunday Times bestselling author. Fresh from his mission in THE JUDAS GATE to seek out and eliminate one of al Qaeda's most valued agents, a traitor responsible for countless soldiers' deaths in Afghanistan, Sean Dillon is back in a blistering new adventure. The American President, on a planned visit to Europe, is entertained by the British Prime Minister on the terrace of the House of Commons. On the same day, London born Mullah Ali Salim makes an impassioned speech at Hyde Park Corner accusing the President of war crimes, objecting to his presence and offering a blessing to anyone who will assassinate him. Dillon, Major Ferguson and Daniel Holley are called into action, helped by a new recruit, Intelligence Corp Captain Sara Gideon, a war hero in the Afghan conflict, whose speciality is Pashta and Iranian. They quickly find themselves trying to handle a massive upsurge in terrorism from enemies near and far, all with links to al Qaeda. As a Sephardic Jew from a wealthy and ancient English family, Sara will find herself at the heart of the firestorm when she is swept into the heart of the terror organisation. Though their leader may be gone the threat remains as terrible as ever, and though Dillon and company may have won the first battle with al Qaeda, they will learn the war is far from over. A devil is indeed waiting and the assassination plan is only the beginning...
THE ULTIMATE ACT OF REVENGE. AND ONLY SEAN DILLON CAN STOP IT.
About the Author
Jack Higgins was a soldier and then a teacher before becoming a full-time writer. `The Eagle Has Landed' turned him into an international bestselling author and his novels have since sold over 250 million copies and been translated into sixty languages. Many of them have also been made into successful films
Capt. Sara Gideon, "a brilliant linguist" just home from a rough tour in Afghanistan, joins the can-do ranks of Great Britain's anti-terrorism squad, the so-called "Prime Minister's private army," in bestseller Higgins's rousing if predictable 19th thriller featuring former IRA enforcer Sean Dillon (after 2010's The Judas Gate). Dillon and his team get on the trail of a Muslim terrorist, Ali Selim, who's offering a blessing to anyone who assassinates leaders of the Western world, including the U.S. president, who's soon due to arrive in London. Violence flares as the search extends from London to Pakistan and into the Persian Gulf, where the bad guys kidnap Gideon, heir to a banking fortune, and hold her for ransom. Higgins fans will appreciate the well-choreographed action sequences, but those seeking a nuanced view of the politics of terrorism or characters with real depth will have to look elsewhere. (Jan.)
