    Jack Higgins proves he remains one of the grandmasters of the international intrigue thriller

    In Quoque, Long island a man waits at a pier for Blake Johnson, security adviser to the POTUS, to dock his vessel the Lively Jane; his mission is to kill the American. The British Prime Minister ordered top operatives Harry Miller and Sean Dillon to attend a U.N. gathering in which Russian Federation Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is speaking. The President wants Blake who will be at the gala to gauge the Russian delegation.

    Harry takes a walk in Central Park but is also stalked and attacked. In London, General Charles Ferguson leaves a late-night meeting of ministers only to see his car with the driver inside explode. Although all roads lead to Moscow, none of the operatives realize Putin has hired the best assassin in the world Daniel Holley to eliminate the agents who have interfered with the Russian's plans for world domination; that is except Dillon who fears his most dreaded enemy has surfaced.

    The latest Sean Dillon and company espionage thriller (see A Darker Place) is a super entry that moves on several subplots before converging for quite a climax. The story line focuses with back stories on how each chosen victim was targeted, stalked and attacked with an emphasis on Holly who ironically and fascinatingly holds the plot together; as opposed to Dillon and the other heroes. Jack Higgins proves he remains one of the grandmasters of the international intrigue thriller with this great entry.

    I love when the good guys win

    I also enjoy when the Special Ops people set the politicians straight especially the way Mitch Rapp does it in Vince Flynns series.

    The Wolf at the door is your greatest Danger and not only in Winter. (Russian Proverb)

    Jack Higgins introduces Daniel Holly, a very dangerous man, a terrorist for hire. He almost succeeds (with the help of the IRA) in eliminating ten British and American special agents. The whole book is a cat and mouse game, with an ironic and satisfying conclusion.
