9780007276394: Rough Justice

Dispatched by the President to report on the state of 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. Filled with all the ingredients that have made him justly admired, Rough Justice is further proof that, in the words of the Associated Press, "When it comes to thriller writers, one name stands well above the crowd -- Jack Higgins."

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 Booklist:

Member of Parliament Harry Miller is also a troubleshooter for the prime minister. When the PM sends Miller to Kosovo, he discovers uniformed Russian soldiers about to set fire to a village mosque, and he shoots their young commanding officer in the head. This rough justice reverberates through the Kremlin, and acts of revenge begin across Europe and the Middle East. Higgins posits a neocon nightmare to buttress his plot: the Evil Empire is using its oil reserves to “addict” Western Europe and succoring terrorists of every stripe to create widespread chaos. Countering the Russians and all the terrorists are a number of characters that have appeared in earlier Higgins novels, including onetime IRA member Sean Dillon. Dillon and Miller are hard guys who elude death and seem to never miss a head shot. The action is nonstop, but the characters are paper-thin, and the dialogue is often leaden. Higgins is clearly off his game here, but he still has many loyal fans, who will be excited at the prospect of something new from one of their favorites. --Thomas Gaughan
