?With fresh plots, interesting characters, and vibrant settings, Jack Higgins has firmly cemented his reputation as one of the world?s most successful thriller writers.? ?The Strand Magazine
The master of suspense returns, with a fierce cutting-edge tale of international terrorism and personal heroism.
?Jack Higgins has written some of the best suspense fiction of the past fifty years,? wrote The San Diego Union-Tribune. And in The Death Trade, he does it again.
An eminent Iranian scientist has made a startling breakthrough in nuclear weapons research, but he can?t stand the thought of his country owning the bomb. He would run if he could, but if he does, his family dies. He is desperate, he doesn?t know what to do.
It is up to Sean Dillon and the rest of the small band known as the ?Prime Minister?s private army? to come up with a plan. Most particularly, it is up to their newest member, an intelligence captain and Afghan war hero named Sara Gideon, who thinks there just might be a way to bring it off.
But plans have a way of coming up against the unexpected. And as the operation spins out, from Paris and Syria to Iran and the Saudi Arabian desert, there is very much that is unexpected, indeed. And much blood that will be spilled.
Filled with event, driven by characters of complexity and passion, The Death Trade is a remarkable novel by the ?dean of intrigue novelists? (St. Louis Post-Dispatch).
L'autore: Since The Eagle Has Landed ? one of the biggest-selling thrillers of all time ? every novel Jack Higgins has written, including his most recent works, The Judas Gate and A Devil Is Waiting, has become an international bestseller. He has had simultaneous number-one bestsellers in hardcover and paperback, and many of his books have been made into successful movies, including The Eagle Has Landed, To Catch a King, On Dangerous Ground, Eye of the Storm, and Thunder Point. Higgins, who lived in Belfast until he was twelve, had several close calls with bombs and gunfire at an early age. After leaving school at fifteen, he served three years with the Royal Horse Guards in Eastern Europe during the cold war. Subsequently, he was a circus roustabout, a factory worker, a truck driver, and a laborer, before entering college at age twenty-seven. He has degrees in sociology, social psychology, and economics from the University of London, and a doctorate in media from Leeds Metropolitan University. A fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and an expert scuba diver and marksman, Higgins lives on Jersey in the Channel Islands.
