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.Read more ›
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!.
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.
