Publisher's Summary

"The bell tolls at midnight as death requires it". But will it finally toll for Sean Dillon and company in the explosive new thriller of murder, terrorism and revenge from a Sunday Times best-selling author?

In Ulster, Northern Ireland, a petty criminal kills a woman in a drunken car crash. Her sons swear revenge.

In London, Sean Dillon and his colleagues in the 'Prime Minister's private army', fresh from defeating a deadly al-Qaeda operation, receive a warning: 'You may think you have weakened us, but you have only made us stronger'.

In Washington, DC, a special projects director with the CIA, frustrated at not getting permission from the president for his daring antiterrorism plan, decides to put it in motion anyway.

Soon the ripples from these events will meet and overlap, creating havoc in their wake. Desperate men will act, secrets will be revealed - and the midnight bell will toll.

The Midnight Bell

Good read. Would be an ideal companion on a long flight or relaxing in the sun poolside. Very typical Jack Higgins - up there but not his very best.

Disappointed

I have been looking forward to this book for a long time. The book is not only slow to start but laborious all the way through. There are many new characters who add very little to the story and appear to be padding to lengthen the story. It would appear that when a new character appears one or more of the original characters tell of their previous glories, this happens many times. I was going to give the narrator a hard time but there are so many characters that finding a different voice must be difficult.
There also appears to be plots from previous stories used again.

I will be giving Sean Dillon no 23 a miss

Dreadfully narrated

Save your money, buy a book with a decent narrator, the guy sounds like he has a speech impediment
