A famous Russian writer and ex-paratrooper named Alexander Kurbsky has gotten fed up with the Putin government, and decides he wants to "disappear" into the West. He is under no illusions, however, about how the news will be greeted at home, having seen too many of his countrymen die mysteriously at the hands of the thuggish Russian security services, so he makes elaborate plans with Charles Ferguson, Sean Dillon and the rest of the group known informally as the "Prime Minister’s private army" for his escape and concealment. It’s a real coup for the West except for one thing: Kurbsky is still working for the Russians. The plan is to infiltrate British and American intelligence at the highest levels, and he has his own motivations for doing the most effective job possible. He does not care what he has to do or where he has to go...or whom he has to kill. Filled with suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, A Darker Place once again proves that, in the words of the Associated Press, “When it comes to thriller writers, one name stands well above the crowd — Jack Higgins.” Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 3/31/2011

    " I remember reading a Jack Higgins novel when I was younger and really liking it, but what I've read since then has only been lukewarm -- not nearly suspenseful enough. Generally good kernel of a plot but not the best execution I think. Meh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 2/18/2011

    " I've read many of these and they don't get any less violent. I like them anyway, but if you've never read them, you might try reading some of the early Sean Dillon ones - the ones with the Eagle in the title. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 12/7/2010

    " Interesting, pretty decent plot line and fairly good writing. It's definitely a good airplane book- a few hours of diversion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rich | 9/17/2010

    " Fine. Typical Higgins. I enjoyed it and liked having a new character besides the same old Sean Dillon story. Read this one after the one that comes after. Audio book. Listened to it while running. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin | 6/7/2010

    " Not a huge fan of spy novels. It was ok, a little contrived in places. Predictable and mindlessly entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. | 5/9/2010

    " This was a very good story about American and Russian spies etc... Most of the activity was in the London England area. Fascinating characters that you would love to see in future novels.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gavin | 4/1/2010

    " A good solid read from Jack Higgins featuring the team know as the 'Prime Minister's private army'. However the book focuses not on the leading members of the team, Sean Dillon and Charles Ferguson but on the more peripheral cohorts and their back history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maureen | 3/26/2010

    " Another great Higgins Novel that kept me on my toes until the last page. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jan | 11/26/2009

    " I have read a lot of Jack Higgins books but this isn't one of his better ones in my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 7/12/2009

    " I haven't read a Jack Higgins in awhile so I found this espionage a good, fun summer read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mathew | 7/6/2009

    " Once again Jack Higgins brings you the bad guys with the heart of gold. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 5/29/2009

    " involved plot that i had trouble getting into. did not finish the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tommy | 5/18/2009

    " I was a bit disappointed in this book. I didn't feel it was up to some of his other books. Not enough action! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kameron | 4/23/2009

    " I do love Jack Higgins' books. Very much pop lit, but I still enjoy them! I like the characters, and the mysteries and espionage always keep me going. This is the latest in the series of Higgins' Sean Dillon line, so if you start here you'll likely be a bit lost with the backstory. "
