Product Description

The electrifying follow-up to The Corsican

Cold War Marseille is a city of shadowy alliances and loose morals, where a good man can lose sight of which side he is really on and evil men profit from the misery and confusion of others. It is therefore the perfect town for Ernst Ludwig, an East German terrorist who is sadistic beyond measure. But when Ludwig kidnaps and murders the wife of Alex Moran, the US intelligence agent hot on his trail, he sets off a blood feud whose violent shock waves will span decades and reach all the way across the globe.
 
To avenge his wife’s death, Moran turns to his “uncles” in the Corsican Mafia, Antoine and Meme Pisani. The Pisanis have been in league with US intelligence since the 1940s, when Moran’s father, a CIA agent, sought their help in suppressing Communist agitators. But the height of the Cold War is a more complicated era, and Moran is forced to resign when his personal alliance with the underworld threatens to shed light on murky dealings between the US government and the mob—dealings that are way above his pay grade. Ten years later, he is called back into action when Ludwig resurfaces as the chief henchman of a Colombian drug lord bent on bringing the Pisani brothers to their knees. Given another chance at revenge, Moran will stop at nothing to bring the German’s reign of terror to a grisly end.
 
William Heffernan’s return to the bestselling world of Corsican crime and international espionage is a thriller so propulsive it grabs you by the throat on the very first page and never lets go.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor material 20 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Crude american writing with simplistic plot trying to show off. Did not impart any atmosphere for Corsica. Don't know how his children (to whom book dedicated) will take to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody, sexy, excellent 4 Nov 2008
By Manfred Arcane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Wow! Heffernan's "Corsican Honor" is an exciting, tough story of crime, terrorism and espionage - mostly set in Marseilles and on the island of Corsica. You can't help but admire those ruthless, sentimental Corsican crimelords Meme and Antoine Pisani as they forge an odd but mutually beneficial alliance with the CIA. Even minor characters (Colette, the former "poule") are finely drawn with a real sense of pathos and place. This is a bloody, sexy, excellent and satisfying read - Corsican stiletto to the had of a read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, well told! 2 April 2013
By Melinda N. Bates - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What a great read! A fascinating story, carefully based on history that was new to me, and very well told. The action, dialogue and characters all ring true, and Corsica, magical Corsica, is a major part of the action. I've been there, and although it was almost 20 years after this book was written, I greatly enjoyed reading about places I know, carefully woven into the plot. Very happy to have discovered this author!
