Cry of the Hunter (The Martin Fallon Novels Book 1) Kindle Edition
Martin Fallon is a legend. After joining the IRA he shot up the ranks in the fight against the Brits in Northern Ireland with his tactical brilliance and devotion. Then, after a daring escape from prison, he simply disappeared. And that’s the way he wants it to stay. After years of hiding from the world in his books and the bottle, he thinks he’s out.
The IRA wants him to break Patrick Rogan, a high-ranking Ulster rebel, out of prison. Fallon reluctantly agrees, and soon finds himself swept back into the Troubles. But in his absence, the IRA has changed. Gone are those who wanted freedom, replaced by those like Rogan—bloodthirsty psychopaths who want nothing but power. And now Fallon must bring his own legend to life in order to bring them down.
In one of his earliest works, Jack Higgins puts on display the absolute mastery of the thriller genre that would earn him a place among the most respected novelists of the twentieth century.
Cry of the Hunter is the 1st book in the Martin Fallon Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But given the ending, I’m left wondering if the Martin Fallon protagonist of this novel is one & the same character as the Martin Fallon of the 1973 novel “A Prayer For the Dying” (player by Mickey Rourke in the 1987 filmic adaptation)?
A public note to female authors, I love women and often try to read mysteries and or thrillers detective stories etc by women. My experience however so far is most do not seem to do their home work weapons, mechanics, technology,etc. That is a real turn off for me and I will usually toss the book at the second or third offense, and these are offenses insults to my intelligence. So please try to do your homework on the details of the genre you are writing about.

He seems to be telling the story of many men who come to realise their mistakes too late. Extremely well told and interesting as usual, holding the reader's attention right up to the end.
