Sean Dillon, master of disguise and steady Higgins hero (Angel of Death, etc.), returns for another go against political mayhem in the author's latest action-fest. A 1985 hijacking of gold bullion, masterminded by Irish Protestant terrorist Michael Ryan, ends with the ship that's carrying the booty sinking off Ireland. Ryan and his niece Kathleen flee to America while their presumed henchman, seemingly a sailor but actually a disguised Dillon, then an IRA enforcer, ostensibly returns to sea. Ten years later, Ryan is sprung from an American medical prison by a Mafia lawyer intent on retrieving the bullion. Soon the gold is the object of desire of the mob, a retired IRA chief of staff and British Intelligence, for whom Dillon now works. The cheeky, pint-sized Dillon tends toward occasional stage Irishness, and the other characterizations aren't much deeper, but readers riveted by Higgins's mastery of plot and pace won't mind at all. Winding up with a jaunty noir bounce, this is splendid high pulp-in other words, vintage Higgins. BOMC main selection. (June) ~ FYI: Two Sean Dillon novels, On Dangerous Ground and Eye of the Storm, will air later this year on Showtime as TV movies, starring Rob Lowe as Dillon.

A wonderful tale of what seems to be one drama links into another ten years later. The dynamic blend of Irish and English history as each struggle to control a land so sacred and deeply rooted in religous fervor. Sean Dillon is the hero of this drama and favorite among Higgins characters. What makes this story so much better is the silky smooth narrative read by Patrick MacNee noted for his role as John Steed in the Avengers series. He brings this story to life and keeps you in suspense in cassette. It is 9 hours of material you can listen to in your car or while doing chores at home. I enjoyed every minute of it and I hope you will too.
