The fast-paced action starts with the death of a presidential envoy's daughter and ends with an explosive showdown in the Rashid oil fields. Higgins makes the most of a somewhat thin plot with superb pacing and terrific action sequences. From Dillon's earlier adventures, he brings back Harry and Billy Salter, the agent's "reasonably but not totally respectable" gangster pals; White House operative Blake Johnson; and Sean's boss, General Ferguson. The new characters include a Vietnam war hero who's a roving troubleshooter for President Jake Cazalet, and another villainous Rashid, Kate's American cousin Chauncey. And while Kate seems to be down for the count at the end of this adventure, Dillon and his fans may not have seen the last of her yet. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This time around it's Lady Kate Rashid's turn to seek vengeance on the President of the USA as well as Sean Dillon and others. It seems her three brothers were killed attempting to assassinate the president (Edge of Danger). Kate Rashid is one the richest women in the world and thus, has the power to get what she wants. Needless to say, she has no idea what she's soon to come up against: Sean Dillon, Blake Johnson, Harry and Billy Salter, Roper, Daniel Quinn and others.
A fast-paced thriller. The character of Sean Dillon is reminding me more and more of a character by the name of Dirk Pitt. You thriller readers know whom I'm talking about. Somehow you just know that no task is impossible. Of course Dirk still rules. This novel was comparable to the previous Dillon novels.
A suspenseful and quick read.
My impression-Lots of action, but the characters for the most part are 2 dimensional and uninteresting. I mean heck thinking back on it the only characters that I can remember are Quinn, Billy and Sean Dillon.
'Midnight Runner,' the sequel to 'Edge of Danger,' sets out to be a classic spy thriller. Kate Rashid, half-wealthy Arab and half-English nobility, is the villain of the piece, along with her cousin Rupert Dauncy. She is determined to have revenge for the killing of her brothers when their evil plans were snuffed out in the previous volume. Dauncy just likes to do nasty things. The list of people Kate Rashid wants to get even with is quite large, including the President of the United States and several of his staff, Senator Daniel Quinn, most of British Intelligence, and, especially, Sean Dillon, the British agent who has been her nemesis.
Kate, the only remaining Rashid, is not 'just' wealthy, she controls the lion's share of world oil production, heads up a large clan of Bedouin tribesmen, and is funding almost every terrorist organization in the world. Indeed, her idea of revenge is to kill of a few people personally and then bring down the world around them. It does not help matters that not only is she wealthy and determined, she is also possessed of a brilliant mind. Small wonder that Dan Quinn and Sean Dillon are determined to see the end of her.
The story has all the right ingredients - menacing villains, roguish heroes, a fast moving complex plot, and the required threat to the free world - but for some reason it fails to sell itself.Read more ›

Sean Dillon is great as always. Once you start you can,t put it down.

Higgins has this figured out. I like books where characters are developed over a long group of books. Read morePublished 10 months ago by RL
