Master thriller writer Jack Higgins plunges his hugely popular hero into his ninth adventure - racing against time to prevent an assassination that would shock the world. When Paul Rashid, leader of the Rashid Bedouin of Hazar in the Persian Gulf, uncovers an international conspiracy to deprive his family of the oil wealth that is their birthright, he vows to gain a very public vengeance. The man sent to stop him is the British Government's uncompromising secret enforcer Sean Dillon. It is a mission that will test him as never before, confronted by foes old and new in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse that will take him from Ireland to the USA, and from the heart of the English countryside to the deserts of Hazar...and the very edge of danger.Hide synopsis

While Mr. Higgins work seems to be more that of a chairman of the board to a committee of writers - formulaic, to a larger degree than in the past - witness the copyright as "Higgins Associates," this is still a good read. Sean Dillon seems to be gradually taking a back seat to other characters as the series goes on, even though his age - based on the first appearance - is only about five years older than my own.
I was missing this book from my collection, and thus had missed on Ferguson's promotion from Brigadier to Major General, but was disappointed in learning that it was accomplished in a simple conversational aside with the president by Mr. Dillon, sans explanation.
The storyline was excellent, however, so I'll forgive the lapse in character development. Higgins is still a master storyteller.
