“Jack Higgins has written some of the best suspense fiction of the past fifty years,” wrote the San Diego Union-Tribune, and the Strand Magazine agreed: “With fresh plots, interesting characters and vibrant settings, Jack Higgins has firmly cemented his reputation as one of the world’s most successful thriller writers.” And in his new novel, a devil is indeed waiting.…

The President is coming to London, but not to an entirely warm welcome. A fanatical mullah is offering a blessing to anyone who will assassinate the President, and though most London Muslims think the mullah has crossed the line, a few think otherwise.

Urgently, Sean Dillon, General Charles Ferguson, and the rest of the small band known as the “Prime Minister’s private army” are called in, augmented by an extra-ordinary new recruit, an intelligence captain and Afghan war hero named Sara Gideon. She has her own contacts and ways of working, but the more she explores the threat, the more she discovers herself in a very dark place indeed.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean Kelly | 1/17/2014

    " Disclaimer time: I gave this 4 stars because I would award 4 stars to just about anything Higgins writes. It is typical Higgins, with familiar characters and typical intrigue plot lines (adjusted for current events, as always). I'm a fan posting a fan's review, nothing more. I enjoyed the book, but my bias stands... I've been reading Higgins' offerings since I was a kid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri Vigil | 12/18/2013

    " Interesting set of characters but basically another take on fight against terrorism. A bit dragging in places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tommy | 12/14/2013

    " A good read but, nothing special. It seemed alot like some of the most recent Sean Dillon books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cherie | 11/14/2013

    " This British thriller was very interesting to read because it was written by a Brit about a special group of undercover, black-op agents, working for MI-6 and the British government. America and American agents were only mentioned in passing. Americans sometimes tend to think that our agents and special forces are the best in the world and the only ones who really accomplish the very difficult assignments in the war against terrorism. NOT TRUE! Our allies across the pond are right in there doing the same kinds of jobs and doing them just as well. After all, 007 was not an American! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 11/8/2013

    " I enjoyed the story, but missed Sean as the main character. And Billy and Harry weren't in it much, either. :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosemary A. | 11/8/2013

    " Dillon and Ferguson save the world again and never grow old. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph Covello | 10/28/2013

    " entertaining in the Higgins tradition "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 9/24/2013

    " This was a better effort than his recent novels, but it still lacked detail and a compelling story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori Underhill | 9/21/2013

    " I love all of his characters. They are all flawed, but that's what makes them so interesting and compelling. The introduction of Sara Gideon is welcomed, as the last main female has been absent for quite a while. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 8/30/2013

    " The latest Sean Dillon book by Higgins focuses on an attempt by Al Queda to kill the President on a trip to London but quickly turns into a search to save the newest member of the team Sara Gideon who has been kidnapped. Typical Higgins fare quick and bloody spy action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Milton Moon Louie | 7/29/2013

    " I enjoyed the adventure. Plots to foil. Kidnapping. And of course the bad guys got their due. No heroes died in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janis | 6/8/2013

    " Fast paced book. Hard to put down. I almost gave it 5 stars. Lots of twists and turns. On the whole, a very satisfying read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 5/25/2013

    " I'm really getting tired of these predictable, uninspired stories. Higgins' early stuff is good, but the later stuff just isn't up to standards at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny | 12/1/2012

    " Another great read by Jack Higgins. I look forward to the next installment. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sanjay Gopal | 11/26/2012

    " Fast read for sure but totally formulaic. Like a Bollywood movie - something I have stopped watching 30+ years ago. Same will apply from now on in for Sean Dillon adventures. Jack Higgins must be writing these in his sleep given his excellent storytelling capabilities - wasted here though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dominc Bender | 10/5/2012

    " A good book for those who like suspense and a well paced story-line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 10/3/2012

    " Very good, much better than the last Dillion book. I like the characters, and it seems Jack must be getting ready to retire Sean DIllion, because Daniel Holley was once again the main focus, with the love interest Sara Gideon. Quick pace lots of action "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doyle | 8/24/2012

    " A nice introduction and character development for a new member to the Prime Minister's Private Army. Would love to start seeing a few prequels now revolving around Ferguson and/ or Sean Dillion. Still a good read and full of intrigue as he is one of the masters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fredrick Danysh | 8/17/2012

    " The British prime minister has a secret anti-terrorism team. Al Queda attempts to disrupt a short visit of the US president and also destroy the team. Al Queda operative kidnap team member Sara Gideon so the order goes out to rescue here and eliminate the people resonsible. An enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 3/24/2012

    " Typical Jack Higgins story. Not a lot of suspense, but a good light summer read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 2/18/2012

    " Same characters he has been using in quite of few of his books. Ferguson, Dillon, the Salters, Roper etc. One new addition in Gideon but the plots have been to similar to get very excited. You can pass a rainy afternoon with this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al Menaster | 2/5/2012

    " Latest Jack Higgins novel. Very well paced, thrilling. A super fast read. But the bad guys make mistakes that make beating them possible, and the good guys always execute perfectly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip | 1/10/2012

    " Much better than other recent books in the Sean Dillon series. Sarah Gideon is a great new character. "
