Overview

A Prayer for the Dying by Jack Higgins

An IRA hit man is on the run and out for redemption in this novel from the New York Times –bestselling author of The Eagle Has Landed and Dark Justice.
 
Martin Fallon has more blood on his hands than any man has a right to. And once upon a time he had no problem with that, killing for his IRA brethren without remorse or regret. But when a mistake leads to the explosion of a school bus full of children, Fallon flees to London to hide with his guilt.
 
His seclusion is broken when he agrees to make one last killing on behalf of the criminal Meehan brothers—and that may be his greatest mistake. For the hit is witnessed by a priest—and now the Meehans want him dead, too.
 
But Fallon has had enough innocent blood.
 
In a desperate struggle for his soul, Fallon must protect the clergyman while fighting not only the ruthless Meehans but also his former IRA comrades who have decided that Fallon himself needs to be silenced.
 
For decades, Jack Higgins has delivered edge-of-the-seat thrills for millions of fans all over the world, and has truly earned his status as “the master” of international action and intrigue (Tom Clancy).

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.

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!

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.

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.
