Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Sean Egan is Irish, well-educated and cynical, trained by the British as a commando who can shoot bad guys between the eyes without blinking. Sarah Talbot is a powerful Wall Street lawyer and a wealthy socialite. This unlikely duo join forces to avenge the killings of Sean's adoptive sister and Sarah's son, both murdered by a ghoulish heroin smuggling ring. They travel throughout Europe, uncovering clues just before each source is murdered before their eyes, followed by the drug ring's cool assassin, Jago. Though it's not unusual to find a political adventure novel lacking in original dialogue or emotional depth, it is surprising to see the plot fall quickly into such predictable contrivances. If Sean straps on an ankle holster at a certain point in the narrative, for example, he will certainly be frisked just a few pages later. The novel has no romance, no sex, and too few twists. The most interesting character, Jago, never lives up to his early promise as the cold-blooded killer with a chilling respect and fondness for Sarah. Higgins builds suspense only to let it dissipate at the last moment, and the ending, though a surprise, is arbitrary and unrewarding. The novel should, nevertheless, eventually find a comfortable niche in the paperback racks. (Jan.)

    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.

    Higgin's is still at the top of his craft!

    Higgins is still at the top of his craft! Character combinations of heroes and infamous villains as well as revenge and strange twists in the story line, allow the reader to stay deeply involved with the intrigue and mystery Higgins crafts so thoroughly in this fast moving thriller. A great read to add to your list.
