Riassunto: Dark Justice: It is night in Manhattan. The President of the United States is scheduled to have dinner with an old friend, but in the building across the street, a man has disabled the security and stands at a window, a rifle in his hand. Fortunately, his attempt is not successful - but this is only the beginning. Someone is recruiting a shadowy network of agents with the intention of creating terror. Their range is broad, their identities masked, their methods subtle. White House operative Blake Johnson and his opposite number in British intelligence, Sean Dillon, set out to trace the source of the havoc, but behind the first man they find another, and behind him another still. And that man is not pleased by the interference. Soon he will target them all: Johnson, Dillon, Dillon’s colleagues. And one of them will fall... Killing Ground: For intelligence operative Sean Dillon, it begins with a routine passport check. But the events it will lead to will be as bloody as any he has ever known. The man he stops at Heathrow Airport is Caspar Rashid, born and bred in England but with family ties to a Bedouin tribe fiercely wedded to the old ways, as Rashid has just found out to his pain. His thirteen-year-old daughter, Sara, has been kidnapped by Rashid’s own father and taken to Iraq to be married to a man known as the Hammer of God, one of the Mideast’s most feared terrorists. Dillon has had his own run-ins with that clan, and when the distraught Rashid begs him for help, Dillon sees a chance to settle some old scores - but he has no idea of the terrible chain of events he is about to unleash, or of the implacable enemies he is about to gain. Before his journey is done, many men will die - and Dillon may be one of them. Filled with dark suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, this novel once again proves that, in the words of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “Jack Higgins is the dean of intrigue novelists. He has no equal.”
