Dillon and company are back in the ultimate blockbuster from the legend that is Jack Higgins...THE LEGEND IS BACK Someone is targeting the members of the elite intelligence unit known as 'the Prime Minister's private army' and all those who work with them. On Long Island, a trusted operative for the President nudges his boat up to a pier, when a man materializes out of the rain and shoots him.

In New York, a former British soldier takes a short walk when a man comes up fast behind him, a pistol in his hand.

Publishers Weekly, 2009-11-02 In bestseller Higgins's exciting 17th Sean Dillon thriller (after A Darker Place), Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin is behind a plot to kill Dillon and other members of the British prime minister's private intelligence army as payback for their being such a thorn in his side over the years. In London, Gen. Charles Ferguson, who's just left a late-night meeting of Commonwealth ministers, is walking toward his car when it explodes, killing his driver. In New York City, Maj. Harry Miller, who's in the U.S. to attend a U.N. meeting, goes for a stroll in Central Park, where he neatly turns the tables on a hired hit man. Extensive flashbacks explain how the attacks on each of the marked men evolved, with much space devoted to the chief assassin, Daniel Holley. Higgins provides a more cerebral story than usual, but he doesn't stint on action. Though most of the plot threads tie up nicely, the ending makes clear that readers will be seeing Holley again.
