American socialite Sarah Talbot had everything going for her: a multi-million dollar business, a large circle of well-placed friends, and a successful marriage to English aristocrat and army colonel Edward Talbot. Talbot is killed in the Falklands Campaign leaving her with her adored step-son Eric, a student at Cambridge. Then Eric dies in Paris of a drug-overdose, and when Sarah seeks to uncover the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death she finds all official roads to justice are blocked. If she wants satisfaction she must take matters into her own hands. And Sarah is determined: someone must pay.

When she meets enigmatic young former SAS sergeant Sean Egan, an eloquent lone gun and the ultimate soldier, she knows she has the weapon she needs. A study in contradictions, Egan is a careful, thoughtful man, but a man to whom killing is as natural as breathing.

Together they embark on a quest for revenge that will lead them from London to Paris, to Sicily and Northern Ireland, then back to London and a shattering climax on the dark, brooding wharves of the river Thames. Together Sean and Sarah will plumb the depths of the underworld, a world in which man’s capacity for destruction is almost beyond belief, a world in which revenge truly is a “season in hell.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eddy Allen | 1/9/2014

    " Higgins confirms his supremacy as our reigning master of suspense. Action, violence and colorful locales combine to form his patented blend of non-stop, page-turning adventure entertainment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TheIron Paw | 10/18/2013

    " A decent thriller. A good holiday read for fun and excitement. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fran | 10/15/2013

    " An older Jack Higgins novel I had somehow missed. Like all his books it is somewhat violent, and always a little predictable, but also enjoyable. Like candy for your brain. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Niki Ganong | 10/9/2013

    " I actively dislike this writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jim | 8/20/2013

    " Book is from the mid-80's and dated terribly. Go with a new book then this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna Lanheady | 7/13/2013

    " I've read most of the Sean Dillon books and enjoyed every one of them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine | 4/28/2013

    " A 2.5 actually. I love Higgens, but this book lacked real direction, poor character development. When I think about Sean Egan as compared to the later Sean Dillon, it added to my disappointment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 4/7/2013

    " This is the first book I have read by Jack Higgins, I will definitely read more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darren | 4/6/2013

    " One of the best books I've ever read. This was not the first Sean Dillon book I read, but it is by far the best. This was one book I had to make sure I had several hours of free time before I began reading it because I had to force myself to put it down... it was that good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas Cook | 10/17/2012

    " First sentence, "Just after four, as first light started to seep through the bamboo slats above his head, it rained again, slowly at first, developing into a solid drenching downpour from which there was no escape." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 10/9/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dhairav | 7/14/2012

    " fast paced but a disappointing storyline. not too bad for a light summer read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 7/7/2012

    " I love Jack Higgins and I loved this book. Twists and a surprise at every turn--from NY to England to Paris to Sicily to Ireland. The best kind of page turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marsha | 4/4/2012

    " This book was good. Not great, but good. everything was wrapped up nicely in the end which I like in a thriller (hate to get to the end and feel like I'm left hanging). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lois | 3/16/2012

    " Give me back Sean Dillon. The plot was fair, the action not very exciting and characters too unidimensional "

    " I have a thing for Tony Villiers too. "

    " Good book with one character Sean that I loved however the supporting character didn't seem quite... real enough. Good read just for Sean though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlie | 10/9/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. All the different plots in the one story was all tied up by the end. Thank you for this book/ "
