Putin and the Russians have suffered too many killings of their own people in the past. Now they want the whole of the Prime Minister's private army wiped out, including Blake Johnson and Charles Ferguson. Somebody is after them; Blake, Harry Miller, his sister, Monica, Harry Salter and Billy. The only people spared are Roper and Dillon. After surviving a car bomb, Ferguson heads a desperate search to uncover the perpetrator. Not wanting any overt connections with their country, the Russians need the right kind of assassin, and to handle such a task they would need to be better than Carlos the Jackal! When such a man is discovered in a Lubiana prison, he is willing to take on the job as a price for his freedom! An unlikely man, brilliant and terrifying, ingenious and deadly, he is the wolf at the door.

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 fifty-five languages. Many of them have also been made into successful films.From AudioFile:
With just the right touch of ironic detachment, Michael Page narrates this seventeenth Sean Dillon thriller about spies, dark men, and dark deeds. Page's performance is devoid of theatrics and melodrama but not energy. His many accents--including Russian, Irish, and British--are clear and accomplished, and he uses them to subtly differentiate the characters. In an attempt at political revenge, Vladimir Putin and the Russians are trying to destroy the entire private intelligence unit of the British prime minister. After assassination attempts occur in several locations around the globe, Dillon must identify who is targeting this elite group of special agents and why. An engrossing performance. S.C.A.
