    Not Worth The Read!

    Having come across this book, I thought I would give it a try. Bad choice on my part. The characters are unbelievable, and the reader continues to think of them as someone in the author's imagination rather than real characters during the story. The author needs to 'know' his subject. With statements such as; '... I learned that I acted instinctively like a real professional who always aims for the shooting hand with his first bullet, knowing that a dying man can still get off a shot at him.' Really! Give me a break. A 'professional' is not some John Wayne. A professional shoots for body mass and lots of it. The author has seen too many cowboy movies and totally spoiled this book from page 22 onwards. The characters are totally unbelievable. Not worth the read.

    Atmosphere indeed

    Coming across a nice old copy of this thrillings Higgins novel, I ran through it, in a good old Jack fashion. The story spins around Stacy Wyatt and espacially the relation that swells up between him and his rescuer Sean Burk is giving a great back ground for this atmospheric classic. The setting on Sicily is gripping and full of deceipt with saw-off shotguns that give off the scent of gun powder. What truly makes this novel a classic Higgins is the rawness of it. The deceipt, the torture, the pain and vengence feel real and the plot spins and spins untill the very last page.
