Jack Higgins
Dark Justice
288 pages
It is night in Manhattan. The President of the United States is scheduled to have dinner with an old friend, but in the building across the street, a man has disabled the security and stands at a window, a rifle in his hand.

Fortunately, his attempt is not successful-but this is only the beginning. Someone is recruiting a shadowy network of agents with the intention of creating terror. Their range is broad, their identities masked, their methods subtle. White House operative Blake Johnson and his counterpart in British intelligence, Sean Dillon, set out to trace the source of the havoc, but behind the first man they find another, and behind the second another still. And that last man is not pleased by the interference. Soon he will target them all: Johnson, Dillon, Dillon's colleagues. And one of them will fall.

Filled with all the dark suspense and sudden action for which Higgins has become famous, and driven by characters of complexity and passion, Dark Justice shows the master at the peak of his powers.

The plot is basic, involving trips to Iraq, London and Ireland.

The book is full of 2-dimensional characters that you don't care for. The dialog is lacklustre; the "action" is simplistic and by-the-numbers. Even the grand finale is over in a few pages.

Dillon runs around the world saving everybody except the US president. There's nothing "thrilling" about this story at all.
