9780008124854: The White House Connection (Sean Dillon Series)

New York: Late at night, the rain pouring down, a well-dressed woman in her sixties stands in a doorway, a gun in her purse, waiting for a Senator to come home. Washington, D.C.: The phone rings on the desk of Blake Johnson, head of the White House department known as The Basement. The President wants him now. London: The Prime Minister sits thinking of Sean Dillon, the one-time terrorist, now his most effective, if not exactly trusted, operative. It'll have to be Dillon, he thinks. There's no one else. Someone is killing off the members of a splinter group known as the Sons of Erin, normally not a cause for much concern, but the consequences are much greater than anyone realizes. For in these actions lie the seeds of disaster: the fall of two governments, the derailing of the Irish peace process. Dillon and Johnson must stop this unknown assassin, the heads of state agree, quickly, quietly, before all hell breaks loose... But they may already be too late. For in the Manhattan night, the silver-haired woman smiles, adjusts her rain hat more snugly on her head, and steps out into the street. Four down, she thinks. Three to go.

About the Author:

Since The Eagle Has Landed—one of the biggest-selling thrillers of all time—every novel Jack Higgins has written has become an international bestseller. He has had simultaneous number-one bestsellers in hardcover and paperback, and many of his books have been made into successful movies, including The Eagle Has Landed, To Catch a King, On Dangerous Ground, Eye of the Storm, and Thunder Point. He has degrees in sociology, social psychology, and economics from the University of London, and a doctorate in media from Leeds Metropolitan University. A fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and an expert scuba diver and marksman, Higgins lives in Jersey on the Channel Islands.

From AudioFile:

Sean Dillon, Blake Johnson and Hannah Bernstein--the team from THE PRESIDENT'S DAUGHTER--return. This time they seek the identities of both a traitor inside the White House and an unlikely assassin, the silver-haired blueblood mother of a British agent killed by Irish terrorists. Dick Hill's narration is low-key and non-intrusive, gaining energy for the novel's action scenes. He creates a wide range of voices for the novel's extensive cast, even for minor characters such as the thugs in the opening action sequence. Most are effective, but a couple of the voices--Blake Johnson's and Jack Barry's in particular--wear out their welcome over the course of the reading. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
