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.
As with so many of Higgin's thrillers, not all is as it seems.
His pursuer, a British Intelligence agent described by one of his colleagues as "a right bastard," is determined to capture the man who killed his daughter.
The backgrounds of both men are carefully detailed to reveal their motives. A winsome woman psychologist provides a major complication when she becomes the love interest of both men. The action-packed opening creates the crisis that drives this book to its tense concluding showdown, an ending in which there are no winners. Great action scenes and plenty of plot twists! -- Susan Fleet, author of the Frank Renzi mystery series
Top international reviews
works by Jack Higgins - an author whose books my husband
and I have read over a number of years since we were introduced
to them on holiday by a couple we met in Portugal one of whom had filled his suitcase with numerous works by this author!
I found Solo unputdownable - a real thriller right through to its dramatic end
and have great pleasure in recommending it to others
Highly recommended seller 5*+++
