Format: Hardcover
I was in the mood for a quick read and this book fit the bill at just under 200 pages. This is a superb international good vs evil tale. I gave 4 out of 5 stars simply because the ultimate resolution to the story was very quick and the protagonist finds out who the killer is almost by coincidence. Truth be told, this would have been a far more satisfying story if it was a little longer and relied a little more on the cunning of the characters at finding each other rather than coincidence.

Solo is mainly the story of John Mikali, grandson of a wealthy Greek business man. He's a sensitive person who loses both of his parents during infancy. He is raised by his maternal grandmother and a doting Greek woman who could have no children of her own. His grandfather, an equally sensitive person is a central figure in his life as well, but lives far away from the boy on an island in Greece. His grandmother dies leaving him alone with his Greek nanny and the grandfather who lives far away. He is a character who has some part of his soul missing. Though he loves the nanny and grandfather dearly, there is a coldness in his heart. Finally, when they are both killed, something in John Mikali snaps. He takes revenge on those who were responsible for their deaths and finds that he enjoys killing. He becomes an international hit man. At least half of the book is devoted to telling the story of John Mikali. It is extremely well crafted and, though he is evil through and through, you understand his character and care what happens to him.

Where John Mikali is the mouse in this cat and mouse tale, Asa Morgan is the cat.

A good thriller in the Jack higgins tratidion. Easy read, fast-paced, well-written, exciting. A book you want to read when you do not have a lot of time and want to relax.

My favorite of all his novels, not excepting his monumental THE EAGLE HAS LANDED ( which I also highly recommend). The plot is so tight it thrums.

I enjoyed this book, and thought it was pretty well written, but I didn't LOVE this book which is why it got three starts. Would probably do 3.5 if possible. I liked the characters and the book kept a pretty good pace because it really spans the life of a Mikali and his adventures. The reader gets to see how Mikali became what he is, and I personally actually liked the character. I did not however, like the ending. I figured how it would end, and I won't ruin for anyone, but I was still disappointed. Overall it was a good book and I enjoyed it.

Whenever I see a Jack Higgins book on the Amazon deals page I snap it up because they are always easy reading thrillers. This one was no exception. While it was written in 1980 it doesn't show signs of age like many others and I have seen similar plot lines in several more modern thrillers.

A psychopathic but artistically gifted killer whose career sends him around the world has found a regular and satisfying source of victims. While the source is politically inspired he is not interested in political gain, only the adrenaline kick of another successful kill. Things start to go wrong when he accidentally kills an innocent young girl in a hit-and-run accident when he is getting away from the scene of another assassination. The girl is the daughter of Asa Morgan, one of England's most dangerous soldiers with a record of violent success in many dangerous flash-points around the world.

Asa vows to avenge the killing himself. Through his contacts he is able to find clues where MI5 and Scotland Yard cannot venture. But the ultimate clue is uncovered through Asa's sheer cunning.

Higgins racks up the drama with an unlikely relationship between Dr. Katherine Riley, a foremost authority on terrorist mentality, and the killer. Riley becomes part of an emotional sandwich when she slowly uncovers the truth from her friendship with Asa.

The finale is high drama and great spy-craft as the Asa, the killer, his source, the MI5, and Katherine meet in a highly charged public performance.

A page-turning and satisfying thriller - well recommended.

No surprises here, but the story flows with some interesting twists. Higgins does a good job of character development. The vapid female lead leaves something to be desired.

This is my absolute favorite Jack Higgins book. I bought it for my husband to read since I gave him a book reader for his birthday. I've read this book at least four times over the years and it's become an old favorite. My husband liked it but didn't love it. He said he understands why women love it though. I have come to the conclusion it's more for women than men.

A great read, as always. A classic Jack Higgins novel from start to finish. I wish the very end had been a bit forgiving; but then he is always the realist. Thanks for the good times, Harry.
