9780008124922: Bad Company (Sean Dillon Series, Book 11)

Undercover enforcer Sean Dillon tackles a new crisis as wartime secrets threaten to topple a President – in the dramatic new thriller from the acclaimed author of the international bestsellers Day of Reckoning, Edge of Danger and Midnight Runner.

In the waning days of World War II, Hitler gave his diary to a young aide, Baron Max von Berger, for safekeeping. Over the years, von Berger has used his inheritance to become one of the richest and most powerful men in the world, developing a secret alliance with the Rashid family – longtime foes of Major Ferguson of British Intelligence, his former-IRA enforcer Sean Dillon and their American colleague Blake Johnson.

Now the time for the ultimate confrontation is drawing near. The diary and its explosive revelations of a secret wartime meeting between emissaries of Hitler and Roosevelt will destroy the US President Jake Cazalet … unless Dillon can find it first.

Filled with hairpin twists and high-tension action, with characters as dark and surprising as any he has created, this is Jack Higgins working at the peak of his powers.

Product Description:

Wartime secrets threaten to topple a President – in the heart-stopping new adventure featuring Sean Dillon, from the incomparable Jack Higgins – bestselling author of Midnight Runner.

In the waning days of World War II, Hitler entrusted his diary to a young aide, Baron Max von Berger. Over the years, von Berger has used his inheritance to become one of the richest men in the world, developing a secret alliance with the Rashid family – long-time foes of Major Ferguson of British Intelligence, his undercover enforcer Sean Dillon and their American colleague Blake Johnson. Now the ultimate confrontation is drawing near. The diary and its explosive revelations of a secret wartime meeting between emissaries of Hitler and Roosevelt will destroy the US President Jake Cazalet … unless Dillon can find it first.

Review:

Bad Company is a competent, unmemorable example of the sort of thriller Jack Higgins can do almost without thinking. His usual characters--former IRA assassin Sean Dillon--and his various allies in British Intelligence and the London underworld--find themselves having to cope again with the consequences of earlier actions. German millionaire Berger and his illegitimate mafioso son Rossi are determined to avenge Kate Rashid, who was herself killed trying to take revenge for her brothers, whom Dillon killed for entirely good reasons of national security. Berger is, however, a more problematic enemy, since he was the last man out of the Berlin fuhrerbunker and is the repository for Hitler's genuine, and extremely compromising, diaries. Specifically, he is the man who can prove that there were peace negotiations between the Nazis and the father of the current US president. There is intelligence here, and some superficial expertise about stunt-flying, but far too much of the plot is a recycling of elements Higgins has found reliable in the past. This is one for his many committed admirers rather than for new readers. -- Roz Kaveney
