Best Jack Higgins book in several years
I 've been a huge Jack Higgins fan for over 20 years. The last several Sean Dillon books that I've read repeated too many of the same formula elements, i.e. the boat ride to Ireland, plane landing in the sea, Blake Johnson getting ambushed, the same quote from Heidegger about resolute living and Dillon getting saved by his titanium waistcoat. A Darker Place does repeat most of these leitmotifs but it goes further and explores many new elements.
Sean Dillion is relegated to a relatively minor role. He is in the story throughout, but in the back row of the characters. My interest in the next book in the series is high because of the introduction of one or more new characters that I think can enrichen the cast of usual characters.
