A mysterious terrorist group is killing other terrorists, IRA thugs and CIA and KGB agents, all in a bid to break the fragile peace process. Sean Dillon is the only man who can find them, if he can live long enough. No one is more feared than January 30: the mysterious terrorist group currently holding destructive and bloody reign over the world. Their targets are random, from all races and religions, their methods deadly. They are the enemies of peace and they are unstoppable. With the carnage mounting, and a US senator due to fly in to broker urgent peace talks, the Prime Minister authorizes a special investigation to hunt down the terrorists with extreme prejudice. Former enemies now uneasy allies, Brigadier Charles Ferguson and Sean Dillon, once the most feared enforcer in the IRA, are enlisted to lead the desperate hunt. Then the senator is targeted for death. Ferguson and Dillon need to move fast, putting their trust in each other, and their lives on the line, in order to seek out and destroy January 30 - before they can kill again, before they start a war.
Publishers Weekly, 1995-01-09 The main plot device in Higgins's new thriller has a certain comic-strip blaze to it: a female British motorcyclist in black leather who carries a Beretta pistol and kills only to create chaos. This angel of death is also Britain's greatest actress, Grace Browning, relishing her new role as assassin of political activists of every stripe, be they Arab or Israeli, Catholic or Protestant, CIA or KGB, East End gangster or American senator. Browning belongs to a group that calls itself ``January 30,'' seemingly in honor of Bloody Sunday in Belfast but actually in honor of nothing but the chaos that she and her homosexual superior, an old KGB hand who's now on Prime Minister John Major's staff, hope will usher in a worldwide Communist state. Pitted against January 30 and Browning are Brigadier Charles Ferguson of the PM's elite Group Four and his most devilish agent, returning Higgins hero Sean Dillon (On Dangerous Ground), ex-actor, ex-IRA hit man and master makeup artist. It's assassin vs. assassin, actor against actor, in this shallow and far-fetched yet exciting yarn, which needs all of Higgins's considerable expertise to stay on course as it hurtles from one nervy thrill to the next.
