9780007304523: On Dangerous Ground (Sean Dillon Series)

A clandestine treaty. A death-bed confession. And the hunt is on for Sean Dillon, who must go head to head with the Mafia. The year is 1944. Just outside Delhi a British Dakota crashes, taking lives and destroying a clandestine treaty signed by Lord Mountbatten and the Communist leader, Mao Tse-tung. An historic agreement, one set to change the course of history. Over thirty years later, a death-bed confession from a Mafia kingpin reveals the answers to untouched secrets about the treaty, and just how much the British and Chinese governments would pay for its destruction. It's not long before Sean Dillon enters the fray; his feared expertise tested as he goes up against the uncompromising violence of the Mafia and the enticing dangers of a beautiful woman, more deadly than any professional killer he has ever known. Battling ruthless killers and the higher unseen powers of the government, Dillon must expose treacheries, colossal truths, and risk everything he loves in an explosive and thrilling quest for justice.

About the Author:

Jack Higgins was a soldier and then a teacher before becoming a full-time writer. 'The Eagle Has Landed' turned him into an international bestselling author and his novels have since sold over 250 million copies and been translated into sixty languages. Many of them have also been made into successful films

From AudioFile:

A missing silver Bible and a secret document signed by Mao Tse-tung and Lord Mountbatten extending the Hong Kong Treaty lead the British Secret Service and the Mafia on a race to the Scottish Highlands. Macnee gives a sparkling performance as he gives life to each of the story's characters. His accents, Scottish, Irish, Italian and English, are superb. And his rich voice adds to the performance as this adventure weaves a web of excitement and danger right down to the very last scene. D.L.V. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
