Product description

Amazon Review

Even in the secret world, there are rules; Jack Higgins' Edge of Danger looks at what happens when rules get broken. Paul Rashid is heir to a British title and the chieftain of a Bedouin tribe--his sense of offended family honour is intense. When oil interests trying to break his control of vast deposits attempt the life of his family, and another assassin kills his mother at home in England, he decides that mere vengeance is not enough--there has to be a reckoning that will establish once and for all that he and his are not to be touched. American and Russian interests were involved--and so he organises the assassination of both the American President and the Russian Premier, as well as anyone else who gets in his way. When he hires out-of-work IRA assassins, British Intelligence get involved, and play their trump card--their own assassin, Sean Dillon. The usual Higgins sense of how the world of violence and mayhem works is here, along with some rather touching material about the clash of incompatible world views--Dillon is charmed by the Rashids, especially Paul's sister Kate, at the same time as he knows he is right to fight them. --Roz Kaveney

Review

‘Higgins is a master of his craft.’
Daily Telegraph

‘A thriller writer in a class of his own.’
Financial Times

‘A compulsively readable storyteller.’
Sunday Express

‘The master craftsman of good, clean adventure.’

‘It’s Dillon’s likeability and the author’s adroitness in giving his character the room he needs that make Higgins’s novels so readable.’
Washington Times
