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."

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 Publishers Weekly:
Action, betrayal, murder and mayhem have long been the staples of Jack Higgins's international thrillers featuring ex-IRA enforcer turned British operative Sean Dillon, and this latest outing continues that tradition. However, Dillon falls into more of a supporting role in a story involving the current Russian regime's efforts to bring forth a new type of cold war. Most of the heavy lifting is performed by the seemingly mild-mannered MP Harry Miller, who, like Dillon, is in reality a British secret agent. Michael Page's narration keeps the action flowing, all the while balancing an international cast of heroes and rogues. Whether the characters are Russian politicos or Irish thugs, British elites or Islamic terrorists, Page provides each with their own particular voice. With a dry, straightforward delivery, he is equally adept in presenting the intricate, globe-trotting plot, driving the story forward and maintaining the taut suspense. Fans of this enduring series will not be disappointed. A Putnam hardcover (Reviews, June 23). (Sept.)
