Overview

Without Mercy (Sean Dillon Series #13) by Jack Higgins

As Detective Superintendent Hannah Bernstein of Special Branch lies recuperating in the hospital, an enigmatic shadow from the past, burning with hatred, steals into her room and finishes the job. Consumed by grief and rage, Dillon, Blake Johnson, and all who loved Hannah swear vengeance, no matter where it takes them. But they have no idea of the searing journey upon which they are about to embark—or of the bloody war into which they are about to charge.

Filled with dark suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, Without Mercy once again proves that Jack Higgins is the unchallenged master of international intrigue.

Anyone who gives a book a 1? review without having read it are just IDIOTS. This is just what I expected from a Sean Dillon Series, a really good read. To the other reviewer who decided to make the 13th book in a series his/her 1st read by Jack Higgins and reward it with 1? is just plain stupid. .....RADARONE.....09-19-17.....

This was my first Higgins book and will be my last for a LONG while. The plot was confusing because it jumped around and scenes that should have been written in detail and should have been full of suspense and action were summed up in one page. The action is minimal, there is no character development and I was so horrified by the poor quality of this book that I made myself finish it just to see where he took the story. I realize this novel is late in a series of novels with Dillon, but a strong novelist will write a series book as a stand-alone piece as well as a continuation for established fans. Unlike other series that I've discovered half-way through, I won't be going back to the earlier novels to read about any of these characters.

I haven't read Without Mercy yet, but just the fact that Hannah Bernstein has been killed off makes me wonder if the book will be as good as his others. I love Higgin's books especially the Sean Dillon series. I feel that getting rid of Hannah will do the story a grave injustice. But, I can't make a decision until I at least read the book.

Hello I didn't read the book because in Germany it's not availible at this moment but i will buy to know whats happen to Hannah Bernstein. But now i read that she will be killed. Now i think the action is maybee flown away. I'm a great Fan of Mr. Higgins but i think to cut Hannah out was the wrong decison. Dilon and Hannah were a great team with this toch of love. Maybee i'll buy it.

I have been a fan of Jack Higgins for over 30 years. Almost all of his books have been great, fast paced excitement, plausible stories rooted in history or great espionage thrillers designed to provide dashing heroes and ¿Daring Do¿ plots to show how good the good guys can be and how bad the bad guys can be. However, after the last three books dealing with the Rashid dynasty I had made the decision not to buy this lasted excuse for a ¿Jack Higgins¿ novel. However it was my birthday and my kids bought it for me. So I had to read it. (I wish they had bought me an UGLY tie instead.) This book follows the trend of the last two books. The characters are the same old tired bunch. The book jumps back and forth so much it loses continuity and all sense of rhythm. However on a bright note by now Mr. Higgins assumes we all know Sean Dillion¿s complete life history so he doesn¿t explain it to us each time the great ¿Sean Dillion¿s¿ name is mentioned. The plot is as weak as a two week old tea bag and about as exciting. There is no action in the book what so ever! Most of the book is written in the third person as a narrative. There is very little dialog between the characters. If any more people are shot and fall off the balcony of the Gangster¿s penthouse on the Wapping Pier, then the British govt. can designate it the official execution chamber of the ¿Wandsworth¿s Prison¿. Also if the Salter¿s are such rich and powerful ¿Govners¿ in the British underworld, why do they have such a lousy security system if they have one at all? Also the friendly banter between people who have just tried to kill each other for the second, third and in some cases fourth time is ludicrous. Also if they are that bad at killing each other, how did these people become the pre-eminent spies/agents of their respective governments? By the next book I expect to see poor old Hannah Bernstein back in action because all the bad guys get resurrected why shouldn¿t Mr. Higgins inflict it on one of the good guys too? Not only does Mr. Higgins keep replaying the falling dead guy off the balcony but this is the third time that Dillon has been shot down flying a sea plane and just like in the book ¿Thunder Point¿ he goes down in the same water depth and of course just off shore with in easy swimming distance. Otherwise he wouldn¿t be able to heroically drag his companions to the beach and save them. Another point I am sure that Al Bowlly was a Great Jazz Pianist but didn¿t these guys ever listen to anyone else. Also since when does every Bad guy in the book have to be a Jazz pianist himself? Come on Mr. Higgins, the books are getting repetitive and boring. The best thing that could have happened in this book is that the bad guys would have succeeded and Dillon and company are killed. Then Higgins would have to come up with some new characters for his books. I am sorry this rant was so long but I hate what Higgins is doing to his books. He is too gifted an author to write such garbage. And if his editor won¿t tell him so then we, his audience should.

During a top secret operation sanctioned by England¿s Special Branch Chief General Ferguson, agent Sean Dillon killed several Provo IRA operatives. and Russian Major Greta Novikova. Russian Josef Belov, who used his multi-billion dollar company, to fund terrorism, also was killed. Special Branch thought Major Yuri Ashimov and Russian Major Greta Novikova were also killed but they survived. General Ferguson¿s aide Deputy Superintendent Hannah Bernstein was critically injured. --- Ashimov wants revenge and is backed by President Putin in his desire because he saw too many of his plans and operatives destroyed by the Special Branch. In the hospital where Hannah is recuperating a nurse who is a sleeper agent in the IRA is ordered to kill her. She succeeds and is then killed by her handler. After a few more attempts are made on General Ferguson¿s agents they find out the two Russian agents are alive and pulling the strings of the IRA. Chasing each other half-way across the world, the adversaries vow to kill the enemy and only luck and skill will determine which side wins. --- Jack Higgins never writes a dull book. His novels are always exciting so that readers can¿t turn the pages quickly enough to find out what happens next. One of the author¿s greatest talents is his ability to make cold blooded killing machines like Sean Dillon sympathetic to the reader. This book is one of Mr. Higgins' best novels to date and will definitely appear on the bestseller lists. --- Harriet Klausner
