Brosnan is the one man who knows Dillon’s strengths and weaknesses…and brilliant mastery of espionage. Once friends, now enemies, they are playing the deadliest game of their careers. A game that culminates in a frightening – and true – event: Iraq’s attempted mortar attack on the British war cabinet at 10 Downing Street in February 1991…
Blending fact and fiction, Eye of the Storm is pure excitement. Jack Higgins at his best.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Well, despite the several killings, suicides, and bombings, this was a boring story. Cut out some of the conversation, and maybe it would be better.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I may listen to the next one just to see if I warm up to the unfeeling protagonist; if not, that will be it for Sean Dillon.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I think the narrator did a fine job. The story was boring.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I read 2 other books in between listenings to this--it was that not engaging.This is not a hero to make my heart pound. He is a sociopath with a warped or dishonest sense of honor (?). His big line is, "I always pay my debts." Except when it is, "I always keep my word." And he expects others to do the same. Maybe I was yawning when it happened, but I missed the part where he could collect his payment even though he hadn't completed his part of the bargain. Now, don't get me wrong, I am happy that the good guys survived and the bad guys didn't, but this was all too weird. This is not honor, even the among-thieves kind. It just made him a jerk.

Any additional comments?

What right-minded head of Intelligence and Captain aide leave a man for dead without checking? Seriously? If that's what you count on to stay alive, I fear your time is up.

I would recommend this to all of my friends

the performance by Michael page was phenomenal. I felt he captured the essence of each of the characters in a way that entices the listener to go for the whole story inn one shot
