this is another in the sean dillon series and has added more flesh to his bones.jack higgins allows you to enjoy this story even if you have not read any other of the series.but if you have that lovable rogue is back and this time you cant even hate the villian as he tries to do the right thing even if its wrong. read this book and enjoy and go and find the others in the series if you are hooked by the end you wont be able to to stop till you read them all and like me won't be able to wait for the next

Another great book in the Sean Dillon series. It keeps your attention well from beginning to end, I found myself leaving things aside to finish the book, as I usually do with Jack Higgins' books. I recently started reading them all from the beginning as I had missed a few of the first ones and was upset that this particular one was unavailable but was so glad it was reissued as it cleared up a couple of mysteries in the series storyline. A great exciting read.

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 July 2004
Format: Audio Cassette
The premise of this book is that someone who doesn't care if he dies is unstoppable.
Mr. Higgins's invincible hero in Edge of Danger is the familiar Sean Dillon, ex-IRA, who continues his role in earlier Higgins books of foiling terrorists on behalf of the British government. The terrorists here come from a wealthy, influential British family (the Daunceys) with Bedouin roots (the Rashids) as well. The Rashids employ IRA and Arab mercenaries to execute their plans, but get their own hands pretty dirty in the process.
The book is marred by several problems. First, Dillon's inevitable success makes the action seem redundant. Second, there's too much action crammed into the story (enough for about four books) so you don't get the careful build-up of tension and then relief that makes action thrilling to read about. You just get another punch in the stomach, and move on to the next. Third, this book is about meglomania on such a grand scale as to be like looking inside an insane asylum. That robs the story of validity. Fourth, the villains are cut out of such thin cardboard that all you can tell about them is that they are crazy, rich, and stupid. The threat from their plots is hard to take seriously. Fifth, the book relies on references to products and brands as the primary means to establish mood and setting, a weak method to employ in such a sketchy book.
I was surprised by how far Mr. Higgins has strayed from his roots as a thoughtful thriller writer. In Edge of Danger, he has almost written a satire of his own work. In fact, the book is almost a crossover into the worst of the post-Ian Fleming 007 books.
The point he wants to make is that honesty and loyalty are what count, rather than one's ancestors, money, or influence.

This latest installment of Dillon meant that i had a sleepless two days as i read it. For your money you get the usual Higgins charm and imagination.
The usual Dillon story it is not, their are twists and turns in the story, but not everything is sorted out by the end.
Billy and Harry both get involved, as does Blake - Once you have finished reading, you will not be able to wait for the next installment.
This is a Very well written book and i can recommend it to any one. Buy iy NOW, You will not regret it!.

As an avid Higgins reader, I eagerly awaited his new title. The reappearance of old favourites such as Sean Dillon and Brigader Ferguson made the book easy to get into and the action from the very first page set the scene for a trademark Higgins confrontation.
Although not as enjoyable as Higgins' classics such as 'The Eagle has Landed', this book was certainly worth a read and added yet another thrilling volume to the Higgins collection.

Naive, simplistic and with more holes in it than a whorehouse. I don't really know where to start. The fact that the Americans KNOW the threat but don't have enough proof to take action (yeah right) or the fact that the British secret service and safety of the planet falls on the shoulders of a borderline alcoholic (and not in the fun way) reformed IRA man and two London gangsters. Clearly MI6 were on vacation. A 6 year-old with two weeks worth of playing Splinter Cell could and would do better.

Up to now, I have enjoyed almost all of the Higgins books, although they have tended to become more samey recently. I was particularly disappointed by Edge Of Danger. The tired old characters of Dillon, Ferguson etc are dragged out again for this entirely predictable, highly contrived and unbelievable yarn. The plots have all been used before, and if you've read any two other Dillon books you'll be able to guess the next line throughout. I bought it to read on the plane - was bored by check in and had finished it long before boarding. Give this one a miss.
