Edge of Danger Paperback
by Jack Higgins
Part of the Sean Dillon Series series
The action-packed new Sean Dillon novel. Master thriller writer Jack Higgins plunges his hugely popular hero into his ninth adventure - racing against time to prevent an assassination that would shock the world.
When Paul Rashid, leader of the Rashid Bedouin of Hazar in the Persian Gulf, uncovers an international conspiracy to deprive his family of the oil wealth that is their birthright, he vows to gain a very public vengeance.
The man sent to stop him is the British Government's uncompromising secret enforcer Sean Dillon.
It is a mission that will test him as never before, confronted by foes old and new in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse that will take him from Ireland to the USA, and from the heart of the English countryside to the deserts of Hazar...and the very edge of danger.

Review by HenriMoreaux
The 9th book in the Sean Dillion series is an underwhelming entrant. Although fast paced initially and interesting with the lead up to the attempted assassination of the US President it quickly thereafter slows to a mediocre level of action with a large serving of cheesiness.The only thing that really remains with me having finished this book is the puzzlement at the sheer number of times Bushmills Irish Whiskey was mentioned. Never mind the gun play if anyone drank this much they'd probably be dead from liver cirrhosis, if seemed like every third page the characters were having yet another drink.
