“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 this 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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 2/20/2014

    " All the usual characters and a new one, Sara Gideon, red-headed hero of the Afghan war. She lives up to her hair! :-) If you haven't read Jack Higgins I might start back a little - it's a long evolving saga. I like the ones about the White House, including, I believe, something about an Eagle. (The Eagle has landed?) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 2/15/2014

    " 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 Greg | 1/19/2014

    " Standard fare from Jack Higgins' fertile imagination. Seems to continue a trend of characters disappearing, either gradually (Sean Dillon) or abruptly (Hannah Bernstein). Fortunately, interesting new characters are coming into play, such as Sara Gideon, introduced in this book. Daniel Holley also has a larger role. Good fiction of the Higgins variety. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al Menaster | 1/18/2014

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn Roys | 1/18/2014

    " Typical Jack Higgins but read them all as they keep coming. Guilty pleasure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny | 1/18/2014

    " 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 Al Stoess | 1/17/2014

    " Higgins has been writing the same book for years. He has added new characters and is phasing out others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leo | 1/16/2014

    " Introducing a new character, Sara Gideon who inmediatly establishes a relationship with Daniel Holley keeping Sean Dillon marginalized. The plot flows on a slow track. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann Friday | 1/7/2014

    " Good book, kept me interested. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Jang | 1/4/2014

    " It was okay. I usually read everything on the best seller list, but it was pretty predictable and some of the dialogue was really cheesy. I just don't think these types of "war" novels are my cup of tea. I'm into much younger, creative writers, no offense, Jack Higgins. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosemary A. | 12/27/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Milton Moon Louie | 12/24/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Larry | 12/12/2013

    " Basic Sean Dillion book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug Branscombe | 12/11/2013

    " Sean Dillion and Daniel Murphy return in the story in which al Queda is planning a terror attack in the heart of London. The characters are familiar and I like them, but for some reason this story didn't grab me that much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tommy | 10/24/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 8/16/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Faced paced and entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 6/6/2013

    " A book that I never would have picked to read. It was very good, fast reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 4/29/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianna Hintze | 4/6/2013

    " Another powerful Jack Higgins thriller. All sorts of interesting side lights and detours keep you reading. For those who like thrillers I highly recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip | 7/20/2012

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janis | 1/18/2012

    " 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. "

    " not one of his best. "
