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.

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.

Good entry in the series

For awhile I have felt that the Sean Dillon books had become quite formulaic. Although enjoyable they were predictable. This entry is a refreshing change. Although the ending came too quickly and was not unexpected, the story was strong, the narration excellent and it was more like some of the earlier books. There was an odd sense of finality about it, however, which was a little disconcerting. Although, there was enough left untold that I could see another book coming down the road, I would not be too surprised if the series came to and end, which I hope it does not! I would rather read a weak Jack Higgins book than a strong book by almost any other author!
