About this book

Book Summary

Dispatched by the President to report on the state of still troubled Kosovo, his trusted agent Blake Johnson runs into a military man there named Harry Miller, who has the same task from the British Prime Minister. They band together just in time to stop a Russian officer from torching a mosque - or rather, Miller stops him, with a bullet to the forehead.

This action will have considerable consequences, not only for Miller and Johnson and their associates, including Britain's Sean Dillon, but for a great many people, all the way to the top of the governments of the United States, Britain, and Russia. Death begets death, and revenge leads only to revenge, and before the chain reaction of events is done - from Kosovo to London to Beirut to Ireland to Moscow - there will be plenty of both.

Media Reviews

"The action moves swiftly...to a climax that will leave readers asking themselves, evidence to the contrary, whether the great game is really over." - Publishers Weekly.

"The book features several characters from earlier Higgins novels ...and contains the same kind of action and adventure. A series of flashbacks helps to fill in the background story, so readers unfamiliar with Higgins's continuing series characters will be able to follow the plot." - Library Journal.

"Clearly, Higgins has little interest in varying [his] recipe, and readers who've savored before will no doubt savor again. " - Kirkus Reviews.
