Eye of the Storm


Sean Dillon is an assassin, a hired hand who, despite working for the IRA, PLO and ETA, has not seen the inside of a prison cell. He's just the man that Iraqi, Michael Aroun has been looking for - the kind of professional who won't flinch from an attack on the offices of British government.


A world-class assassin goes after British PM John Major in Higgins's latest firmly engaging round of speculative derring-do. The Day of the Jackal this isn't, although Sean Dillon--a rogue IRA hit-man who's also a master thespian--is nearly as charismatic a killer as Forsyth's Jackal; and the author's own The Eagle Has Landed it isn't quite either, though Higgins, a diligent literary recycler, revives the spirit, pacing, and even one major player from that 1975 classic. This is the vigorous, rather simple tale of what might have been behind the real-life, still unexplained, mortar attack on Number Ten Downing Street on February 7, 1991.
