Ben Garvald is out of prison. After nine years in lockup, he’s coming back to the old neighborhood. Back to his remarried ex-wife. Back for revenge. That’s what the cops think.
But Detective Sergeant Nick Miller isn’t worried. His highly unorthodox methods are perfectly suited for the graveyard shift—the midnight hours when the driven and desperate come out to play. Tonight, Nick Miller’s toughest opponent will be Ben Garvald....
And only one of them will live to see the dawn.

Since The Eagle Has Landed—one of the biggest-selling thrillers of all time—every novel Jack Higgins has written has become an international bestseller. He has had simultaneous number-one bestsellers in hardcover and paperback, and many of his books have been made into successful movies, including The Eagle Has Landed, To Catch a King, On Dangerous Ground, Eye of the Storm, and Thunder Point. He has degrees in sociology, social psychology, and economics from the University of London, and a doctorate in media from Leeds Metropolitan University. A fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and an expert scuba diver and marksman, Higgins lives in Jersey on the Channel Islands.From AudioFile:
Ben Garvold, a small-minded convict recently released from prison, is determined to collect the money stashed from his last crime. He's done the time. He's paid his dues. His wife and sister-in-law dread his release and ask for police protection. Detective Nick Miller, judo and karate expert, follows Garvold to learn where the stolen money is hidden. This 1960s police procedural never takes off. Even though characterizations are well done--British and Cockney accents are adeptly used to differentiate a variety of characters--the story remains flat. This is the first of three titles to be released in the United States. It's too bad the British didn't keep it. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
