Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

Many of Higgins's thrillers have told one continuing saga, involving the efforts of Gen. Charles Ferguson (head of the British PM's "Private Army") and his staff to fend off various threats to queen and country. Here the timely challenge is Arab terrorism, but wobbly focus makes this a mediocre entry in a generally first-rate series. An attempt on the American president's life leads Ferguson—who alerted the Secret Service to the threat—and his main man, legendary hit man and former IRA enforcer Sean Dillon, to Josef Belov, an associate of Vladimir Putin (who appears in a cameo) and a Russian oil billionaire who's intent on world domination and who along the way is funneling would-be jihadists from Britain into terrorist training camps in the Middle East. Instead of concentrating on the promising terrorist angle, Higgins traces Dillon and Ferguson's pursuit of Belov and his goons, a race that leads to violent shootouts in Iraq and elsewhere. Ferguson takes a bullet, and Supt. Hannah Bernstein is seriously hurt. The story climaxes in a vengeful, bloody foray by Dillon and old sidekick Billy Salter into Belov's castle stronghold in Ireland. Higgins's action has always been clipped, but here some scenes are positively rushed, and there's much that's overly familiar. Still, the author's high-speed narration and the mesmerizing hard edges of heroes and villains alike should sustain fans' perhaps grudging interest.

From Booklist

Higgins has been a best-selling author for decades, but most of his books sound pretty much alike. This one, which brings back IRA enforcer turned British intelligence officer Sean Dillon, begins with a botched attempt to assassinate the U.S. president. Turns out the would-be assassin (who takes his own life rather than be apprehended) is part of a network of villains bent on causing as much terror and confusion as possible. Can Dillon and his American counterpart Blake Johnson bring the evildoers to justice? It's a standard Higgins plot, with standard Higgins characters, and fans of the novelist's previous thrillers will soon realize they are in familiar territory. The Higgins name will still attract an audience of devotees, but younger readers new to the genre are unlikely to see what all the fuss was about. Even veteran Higgins readers may find that too much of a once good thing has become tedious. David Pitt

4.0 von 5 Sternen Back to old quality 28. April 2005
Format:Taschenbuch
After a few poorly written books, Higgins now presents a Sean Dillon as most of his readers learned to love him, cold, cynical and dangerous. the plot is simple but entertaining, there a grave changes in the team for future issues, but they had to be expected for quiet a long time. When I started to read this book i couldn't put it away for two nigths until I finished it. If Higgins could keep this level of storytelling I'm really looking forward for more ...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Brief Action Moments Separated by Lots of Posturing 24. März 2007
Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
If you read either Bad Company or Midnight Runner, this book will seem familiar to you. A new man, Josef Belov, has stepped into the Rashid holdings after Baron von Berger died in a plane crash, and provides a new source of villainy aimed at the Middle East oil fields. The money and the background this time are Russian, and you will feel at times as though you are back in the Cold War as well as up against the IRA.

As the book opens, a terrorist assassin named Henry Morgan stalks the U.S. president. The trail the assassin leaves behind leads to a mosque in London and suggests a wider terror network aimed at destabilizing Iraq.

While consulting with the president, General Charles Ferguson leads a counter attack to locate the terrorist organization and to stop it. As usual, Ferguson relies heavily on Sean Dillon, Major Roper, Hannah Bernstein and Dillon's allies, the Salters.

The opposition draws heavily on experienced Russian intelligence personnel who are now freelancing, as well as other freelance operatives.

Soon Ferguson and the opposition are well aware of one another and are racing to gain strategic advantages. Along the way, there are lots of threats, bragging and by-play. Every 40 pages or so, there's a brief violent confrontation. This conflict is enhanced by Belov's antipathy towards Ferguson and his team.

The backdrop of the story is more interesting than many of Mr. Higgins's thrillers. There are cameo appearances by world leaders and lots of references to the antiterrorist methods now being used in the U.K. The book gently raises the question about whether the antiterrorist forces should have unrestrained authority or not . . . and seems to suggest that they should.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good start with predictable end 28. August 2005
Von A. Zuther
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This latest release of Jack Higgins was a disappointment for me, since this author has previoulsy published other titles in which the plot seemed more likley and the characters were described more in detail so that the reader has always an impression of the set, the persons and the development and most important always the chilling feeling that these things may actually be happening in that real world in which we are living.
In this book there are so many "good guys" that is takes a while to figure out who is the main character. Is it the former IRA activist Sean Dillon, Fergusson, the two American agents from the special detail firectely reporting to the president or even the superbrain Roper? There are so many names and charcters that appear in random order at so that it is conufusing to keep track of what is going on. Remember not all of them are important i.e. the US president! Similarly there are many locations, some of them more important, other of lesser importance. Nevertheless all are described in the same detail. Why do all important character have to drink alcohol whenever possible?
Once it becomes clear who are the good guys and the bad guys the outcome is very clear. The only question is how is it going to happen? Well, at the end the bad guys are blown up in the air with their motor yacht,.....this is a familar scene from "Toll for the brave". Long pasages of verbal speech that strecht over pages, whereas the action is described very brief without any details so that these scenes happen in "fast forward". Of course Higgins's style is different from Tom Clancy, Ken Follet and Stphen Coonts, all of which I highly recommend. However Higgins did better in the past! I had to force myself to finish the book and will think twice before reading his next release!
