The incomparable Jack Higgins returns to the bestseller lists, launching undercover enforcer Sean Dillon into a most spectacular adventure – a no-holds-barred battle with a Mafia don. It’s all action and suspense as Sean Dillon and his secret intelligence colleagues seek to help American White House security insider Blake Johnson avenge the death of his ex-wife, a reporter murdered for getting too close to a Mafia story.
