On dangerous ground jack higgins
On Dangerous Ground (Sean Dillon #3) by Jack HigginsIm not a big Higgins fan, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Probably thats because its a whole lot like reading a James Bond novel (of whom I am a big fan), just more contrived and a lot less literary than anything Ian Fleming ever wrote. Sean Dillon makes for a likable, ruthless hero, and this is the first time readers get to see him portrayed as a good guy. The book is a quick, easy read: its sparsely detailed and dialog-heavy--as if it were written for people who dont usually like novels. Its a story that features characters and settings from all over the globe, and Higgins does a fantastic job of giving each character a unique dialect, as well as describing the exotic locations with native-like authenticity. Not too many surprises here, but fans of old-fashioned spy stories should be more than satisfied.

Thank you! Now, with the months ticking down on the original lease, a race is on for the last surviving copy of the Chungking Covenant. Sound familiar? It's a virtual rehash of Higgins' last, Thunder Point --but don't tell that to stalwart, nondescript Brigadier Charles Ferguson or his dashing one-time IRA enemy and present right- hand man Sean Dillon, fresh from thwarting an assassination attempt against the American President in London. This preliminary plot winds down so rapidly that you just know the assassins weren't really trying.
