Jack Higgins books are old favorites of mine, but this is one of his new series featuring Nick Miller, an unconventional detective to say the least and not all his colleagues like working with him. Can't wait to read the other two books in this series. If you like English thrillers you'll love this one.
Well-off Nick Miller's 1st shift as a Detective Sergeant is chock full of action, mostly involving newly-released-from-prison Ben Garvald & his "pals", having to do with money he was in jail for stealing. ... I'm going to read more Higgins.
Ben Garvald is out of prison. After nine years in lockup, he's coming back to the old neighborhood. Back to his remarried ex-wife. Back for revenge. Thats what the cops think.
But Detective Sergeant Nick Miller isn't worried. His highly unorthodox methods are perfectly suited for the graveyard shift...the midnight hours when the driven and desperate come out to play. Tonigh, Nicks toughest opponentwill be Ben Garvald and only one of them will live to see the dawn.
All in all a pretty good story.
