    Higgins at his Finest

    Sean Egan and Sara Talbot make an unusual pair. She's a rich, pampered and sheltered Wall Street powerhouse who just happens to have connections in the White House and on Downing Street. He is a former British Special Air Service sergeant who was honorably discharged for medical injuries; he's a real hard bitten, tough, military type who can kill with no remorse. His uncle just happens to be one of the most respected and infamous villians in London. This fact is very important.However he has now gone legit and is making millions, of which Sean is the sole heir. Sara's husband was a colonel in the British Army, and had a son by a previous marriage, named Eric whom Sara loved as her own son. It is his death that sends herlooking for revenge. Egan knows about revenge and tries to dissuade her from proceding with this business. (his parents were killed by the IRA, which lead him to join the SAS, eventhough he's Irish and a Catholic) Failing to talk her out of it, he goes on to join her in her quest. there is no actual romance between them at all, but it may be inferred from their dialogues that both care very deeply for one another. To twist the story even more, Higgins throws in a mafia connection to the boy's death. The mysterious 'Mr. Smith' and his twisted yet strangely gentleman like accomplice 'Jago,' are connected to both a Protestant extremist group in Northern Ireland and the Sicilian mafia. In the end, the story has taken so many twists that if you haven't been paying attention, you might not understand the outcome. Jago even forms some sort of attachment to Sara and saves her life several times, even though Smith has sent him to kill her. It turns out that Eric's death is one of a series like it, and that it is related to a drug smuggling operation tied to Protestant terrorists in Ireland. The Irish are protected by a former magistrate and knighted soldier called Sir Leeland Barry who heads the Royal Ulster Constabulary. Egan and the woman, as well as their activities, come to the attention of British Intelligence, who order them to quit while they are ahead, knowing full well that they won't, but instead will lead them to the terrorists as well as to the elusive Mr. Smith. A thoroughly exciting book. Higgins at his best.
