Overview

 
The classic Jack Higgins thriller—now available as an ebook

 
An ex-IRA soldier must save a priest targeted for elimination to gain absolution for his violent past
 
Everyone has demons to overcome, but Martin Fallon has more than most. A ruthless hitman and executioner for the IRA, Fallon is haunted by a mistake that led to the explosion of a school bus full of children.
 
When he’s threatened by the sadistic Meehan brothers, Fallon must agree to one last hit. But this time there’s a witness: a priest named Father De Costa. And when everyone else wants the Father dead, Fallon is determined to protect him, to earn redemption from his life of crime and forgiveness for the blood on his hands.

    One of his better books

    When Higgins, doesn't recycle plots, his stories are entertaining. The book is certainly better than the movie. The main character is a proto-type Dillion of the current novels that pass as Higgins' fare. I highly recommend this book, especially for new readers.

    Early Jack Higgins

    A treat to read one of Higgin's early works. A quick read. Not a lot of plot or character development yet still room for a little redemption. I enjoyed it and recommend this book.

    Not worth the money

    I have read most of Higgins books and have been intrigued with them, the last two or three he has not done a good job. Seems to be always the same story line. The last book was just over 200 pages, this book is 159 pages, you cannot tell a good story in that small number of pages. save you money.

    Well Written - Great story!

    This book was recommended by B&N one day through the 'daily'. It seemed interesting after reading the overview. It had several great reviews and this one is just more of the same! Great story, very realistic, unpredictable, and I hated to have to put it down! Jack Higgins is a great author with an amazing ability to tell stories. You won't be disappointed!

    Worth the read

    Higgins (pseudonym for Patterson)tells the story of Martin Fallon, a killer for hire with a haunting past. Fallon complicates the circumstances of this kill for crime boss Dandy Jack Meehan by involving a priest and the priest's blind niece. Many of Meehan's thugs are stereotypically drawn characters. Fallon and La Costa (the priest) are complex, real characters who held my interest throughout. In the end, the reader must decide whether Fallon is good or bad, a lost soul or a redeemed man.
