On Long Island, a trusted operative for the President nudges his boat up to a pier, when a man materializes out of the rain and shoots him. In London, General Charles Ferguson, adviser to the Prime Minister, approaches his car on a side street, when there is a flash, and the car explodes. In New York, a former British soldier, who is also a bit more than that, takes a short walk in Central Park to stretch his legs, when a man comes up fast behind him, a pistol in his hand.

And that is only the beginning. Someone is targeting the members of the elite intelligence unit known as “the Prime Minister’s private army” and all those who work with them, and whoever is doing it has a lot of resources at his command. Sean Dillon has an idea of who it may be, an old nemesis who has clearly gotten tired of their interference in his schemes. But proving it is going to be a difficult task. And surviving it the hardest task of all.…

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rod | 2/17/2014

    " okay but it is a sequel to his previous book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hazel Roberts | 2/13/2014

    " Charles Ferguson and Sean Dillon are the targets plus their friends "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 2/13/2014

    " Typical action packed Jack Higgins, Sean Dillon at his best. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Greg | 2/5/2014

    " Another of Higgins' Sean Dillon adventures. Bad guys try to kill Dillon and his friends, but Dillon et. al. are better bad guys and prevail. Not one of Higgins' best novels, and even his best are not as good as some authors I enjoy (Stephen Hunter, for example, or Dean Koontz). I think this will be the last of Higgins' novels for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Fallon | 2/2/2014

    " A new villain AND a new anti-hero. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 1/24/2014

    " Hit men paid by the Russians come after top security teams that protect the U.S. president and the British prime minister. The teams fail so Russian president Putin pulls an IRA assassin out of jail to take over in exchange for his freedom. Lots of action with the usual Higgins characters emerging from life threatening scrapes every other page. Good mindless entertainment on a cold wintry day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken Eveleigh | 1/18/2014

    " A Sean Dillon story is always good for a long drive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Serdar | 1/18/2014

    " The 17th book of the dillon series. And that is an excellent book too... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 1/10/2014

    " Reasonably entertaining. Wish I could give it two and a half stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Larry | 12/10/2013

    " An interesting plot with the first chapter grabbing your attention on what is going on. Characters are starting to get old however. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tommy | 11/26/2013

    " I didn't think this was as good as some of Mr. Higgins's earlier books. However, he did introduce a new chararter that I think will appear in future books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry Brasington | 11/21/2013

    " Master of suspence thrillers, this one takes a twist and delivers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.W. Thompson | 11/18/2013

    " Another fantastic thriller by the master. Jack Higgins character Sean Dillion leads us through a tale of suspense in a novel you won't want to put down. Is it the Irish or Russians who want to end Charles Ferguson's team? I highly recommend this book to Higgins fans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Penny | 10/11/2013

    " As usual I enjoyed the book. I'm a big Higgins fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich | 9/27/2013

    " Audio book. Listened to it while running. Really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 6/16/2013

    " Brings back the old Higgins, fun read. The Ferguson/Dillion characters are more secondary characters in this book to the Russians and Daniel. Fresh point of view and leaves the possibility to see Daniel again. The Dillion characters are aging it is time for new blood. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 4/24/2013

    " This is Sean Dillon book and was very predictable, really sort of boring. He did introduce a new character, so maybe the next one will be better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 10/4/2012

    " Good premise, lot's of high profile gov. types are getting targeted by... IRA? And I did enjoy it, just too hokey English - "Quite right, old chap!", after awhile! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 8/17/2012

    " pure trash. very entertaining. lots of people getting killed in the fight against Russia. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janeene | 3/26/2011

    " I had a hard time following all of the characters and keeping them straight. The book didn't keep my interest and I had to press myself to finish it. "

    " Reasonably entertaining. Wish I could give it two and a half stars. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John | 3/1/2011

    " I'm not sure what was more annoying, the poor plot or the one dimensional characters. Probably not a bad read for a teenager who likes cloak and dagger novels but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone over 16. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 2/28/2011

    " A new villain AND a new anti-hero. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 10/8/2010

    " Ten years ago, Higgins was a good read. Now it's just more of the same... "

    " Jack Higgins pens perfect thrillers for the beach or airplane flights. This fit the bill perfectly, except I didn't have the money to take a trip. Higgins took me to New York, London, Moscow and the middle east. "

    " Pretty houkie but fairly well written. "
