9781480479517: A Season in Hell

An electrifying novel of blood, vengeance, and international intrigue from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Eagle Has Landed.
 
As a high-powered Wall Street lawyer, Sarah Talbot believed her world was comfortable and secure—until her beloved stepson was found dead of a drug overdose in Paris. Her initial grief is compounded when she learns that his body was used to transport heroin by an unstoppable European cartel.
 
Trained by British SAS, Irish-born Sean Egan has no problem killing whenever and wherever someone has to die. Dealing with death is second nature to him. So when his sister’s drug-poisoned corpse is found floating in the Thames, he knows it’s not an accident—it’s murder.
 
Bonded by their shared loss, Egan and Talbot come together, vow to find those responsible, and make them pay. Pursuing an enemy known only as “Mr. Smith” and hunted by a master assassin, they cannot imagine the truth they will uncover—and the dangers they will face. All they know is that they cannot stop until they have their revenge—no matter the cost.
 
For over fifty years, Jack Higgins, author of The Midnight Bell, Rain on the Dead, and other bestsellers, has thrilled millions around the world with his lighting-paced novels of international action, suspense, and spy craft. Filled with engaging heroes, implacable villains, and action that draws readers in like a classic honey trap, Higgins’s novels remain the high-water mark of thriller excellence.

About the Author:

Jack Higgins is the New York Times–bestselling author of more than sixty thrillers that have sold over 250 million copies worldwide, including The Eagle Has Landed and The Wolf at the Door. Before beginning his writing career, Higgins served in the British Army along the East German border. He lives in the Channel Islands.


From Publishers Weekly:

Sean Egan is Irish, well-educated and cynical, trained by the British as a commando who can shoot bad guys between the eyes without blinking. Sarah Talbot is a powerful Wall Street lawyer and a wealthy socialite. This unlikely duo join forces to avenge the killings of Sean's adoptive sister and Sarah's son, both murdered by a ghoulish heroin smuggling ring. They travel throughout Europe, uncovering clues just before each source is murdered before their eyes, followed by the drug ring's cool assassin, Jago. Though it's not unusual to find a political adventure novel lacking in original dialogue or emotional depth, it is surprising to see the plot fall quickly into such predictable contrivances. If Sean straps on an ankle holster at a certain point in the narrative, for example, he will certainly be frisked just a few pages later. The novel has no romance, no sex, and too few twists. The most interesting character, Jago, never lives up to his early promise as the cold-blooded killer with a chilling respect and fondness for Sarah. Higgins builds suspense only to let it dissipate at the last moment, and the ending, though a surprise, is arbitrary and unrewarding. The novel should, nevertheless, eventually find a comfortable niche in the paperback racks.
