9780007223688: The Killing Ground

For intelligence operative Sean Dillon, it is a routine passport check. But the events it will lead to will be as bloody as any he has ever known. The man he stops at Heathrow airport is Caspar Rashid, born and bred in England, but with family ties to a Bedouin tribe fiercely wedded to the old ways, as he’s just found out to his pain.

Rashid’s thirteen-year-old daughter, Sara, has been kidnapped by his own father and taken to Iraq to be married to a man known as the Hammer of God, one of the Middle East’s most feared terrorists. Dillon has had his own run-ins with that tribe, and when the distraught man begs Dillon for help, he sees a chance to settle some old scores—but he has no idea of the terrible chain of events he is about to unleash, nor of the implacable enemies he is about to gain. Before his journey is done, many men will die—and Dillon may be one of them.

About the Author:

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:

Christopher Lane manipulates British, Russian, German, and Middle-Eastern accents to depict foreign terrorists who are being chased by British intelligence operatives Sean Dillon and Billy Salter. With genuine anxiety, subtle accents, and impeccable timing, Lane portrays Caspar Rashid, who was born and raised in England but who has family ties to a Bedouin tribe. When he discovers that his 13-year-old daughter, Sara, has been kidnapped by her paternal grandfather, who has arranged for her transport to Baghdad for the purpose of marrying a Muslim extremist, Rashid begs Dillon, a former IRA operative, for help. Lane's chilling portrayal and powerful characterizations make this thriller especially believable. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
