Overview

Mister Jacks is a man naturally more ruthless than his enemies, a condition that serves him well when he is asked to do a favor by his old friend Jacob, the head of a secret anti-terrorist organisation. The favor involves escorting a young lady from Kent to Luxembourg. The young lady is under threat from al-Qaeda and al-Hashashin, but though she is initially their target, their focus shifts to Mister Jacks and they pursue him with a personal vengeance. With his life under threat, Mister Jacks calls upon all his ruthlessness to determine that he goes on living. For if he dies, the young lady dies next—and he would not like such an event to occur.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Billy Jacks, a steely killing machine, must escort a spoiled young arms heiress, Cassandra von Deker, from England to Luxembourg, where she's to assume control of Deker Industries, in this uneven mix of assassin-vs.-assassin thriller and romance from British author Wilson (A Criminal Act). Since al-Qaeda plans to take over the company should Cassandra die, her bodyguard's duty is anything but routine. The terrorists' master hit man, code-named Azrael, targets Jacks because he blames Jacks for the death of one of his most valued allies. Unfortunately, the eventual clash between Jacks and Azrael comes as an anticlimax after the reader has struggled through page after page of the growing infatuation of the Paris Hilton-like von Deker with her protector ("Hope gently blossomed inside Cassandra as she imagined he was going to ask of her something intimate"). (Aug.)
