Review:

Jack Higgins's Fox is a Mafioso of the new breed--well-spoken, cultured, a war hero--but prepared to kill on reflex. When Fox kills a woman journalist for spying on his affairs, he omits to check out her past; her ex-husband, Blake Johnson, a security adviser to the President, swears bloody vengeance on him and is joined by his friends, notably Sean Dillion, the former IRA enforcer, in a crusade to humiliate Fox before killing him.

"We take this animal out, only we do it my way. It's too easy to shoot him on the street. I want this to be slow and painful. We destroy his miserable little empire bit by bit until he has nothing left. And then we destroy him."

In a sequence of short episodes, each of Fox's enterprises--a London casino, a deal with the Army of God over uranium-tipped missiles, a diamond heist, arming IRA holdouts against the peace process--is taken away from him; we know, though, from the start, that the final reckoning is still to come, and that Blake will find himself Fox's prisoner in the waterlogged cellars of a Cornish castle ... Higgins has a formula down pat, and will never disappoint his myriad fans. We get a lot of technical details about just how to blow up a ship or crack a safe, and a group of adventurers whose utter ruthlessness goes along with sentiment and loyalty. This is the mixture as before, efficiently done. --Roz Kaveney

Review:

‘Another page-turner from the master... one of the fastest-moving thrillers Higgins has penned for some time. It isn’t just Higgins at his best, it is him at his most inventive and impressive.’
Oxford Times

‘Dillon makes his 8th appearance in this return-to-form thriller. As in the best of his earlier work, Higgins shifts the action with practised ease between London, Beirut and Ireland... this is Higgins as we like him to be.’
Good Book Guide
