A very disappointing read. To many characters, many with no relevance to the story. I never developed any attachment to any of the characters. No more than a "made for TV" movie.

The latest Jack Higgins.The gang's all here including the replacements for those killed off in the past, notably Hannah Bernstein,(in retrospect,he really lost me there) but... this time, I had to have a thorough check on my list that I hadn't read this one before.The earlier books are so much better..I think the publishers are asking too much of Harry Patterson,an 85 year old author with numerous pseudonyms, who should now be able to rest on his considerable laurels.

Just a so-so novel. To many
twists and turns,
Mid-eastern names,along with
many other characters.

Higgins brings Sean Dillon and company back yet again in this latest tale pitting the operatives against a shadowy conspiracy of agents under the employ of a shadowy Al-Qaeda puppetmaster. It's not quite Higgins at his best- the books haven't been the same since he killed off Hannah Bernstein for no reason (and Sara Gideon pretty much is a Hannah Bernstein fill-in), and there are continuity glitches that one can chalk up to Higgins trying to keep his characters of a certain age. Still, the refreshing total lack of the presence of the personality cipher Daniel Holley character helps, as does the complicated motive of the villain.

Read his novels for more than three decades and he (as well as his stories) still sounded the same.

Higgins or Doyle it's a suspense novel written in the Queen's English. It has more characters than a box of animal crackers. You'll want to go back to a Clancy or Thor after reading this.
