Publisher's Summary

The new Sean Dillon novel, a knife-edge story of terrorism and revenge, by "the dean of intrigue novelists" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch).
"The bell tolls at midnight as death requires it."
In Washington, D.C., on a night full of rain, a woman is struck down and killed by a hit-and-run driver. But she is not just any woman - she is the assistant to the head of the secret White House department known only as the Basement. And she had secrets of her own.
In the Virgin Islands, former president Jake Cazalet receives a warning. He is recuperating on a diving trip after successfully helping Sean Dillon and the rest of the "Prime Minister's private army" defeat an Al Qaeda operation in London. But though AQ may be weakened and facing competition from other terrorist upstarts, it is far from dead - and it intends to prove it.
Soon the ripples from these two events will spread and overlap, not only in Washington but around the world. Everyone involved will find themselves in the most desperate battle of their lives - and the midnight bell will toll.

A reunion of old friends

If you are a long standing reader of the Sean Dillon series, this book was merely a light visit to the characters we have come to know over the years. Kind of like a visit to family at the holidays - enjoyable but not of any depth. The plot construction was noticeably devoid of the depth we have come to appreciate. If you are considering visiting the team at Holland Park please start with a previous volume.

terrible addition to the series

Can't truly explain how bad this book was. Very disappointing addition to the series. Nothing happens! Characters endlessly repeat their back stories. Skip this one.
