Publisher Comments:

The New York Timesa bestselling author and adean of intrigue novelistsa returns with a remarkable novel of espionage and revenge.

A famous Russian writer and ex-paratrooper named Alexander Kurbsky is fed up with the Putin government and decides he wants to adisappeara into the West. He is under no illusions, however, about how the news will be greeted at home, having seen too many of his countrymen die mysteriously at the hands of the thuggish Russian security services, so he makes elaborate plans with Charles Ferguson, Sean Dillon, and the rest of the group known informally as the aPrime Ministeras private armya for his escape and concealment.

Itas a real coup for the West except for one thing: Kurbsky is still working for the Russians. The plan is to infiltrate British and American intelligence at the highest levels, and he has his own motivations for doing the most effective job possible. He does not care what he has to do or where he has to go . . . or who he has to kill.

Filled with suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, A Darker Place once again proves that, in the words of the Associated Press, aWhen it comes to thriller writers, one name stands well above the crowdaJack Higgins.a

Synopsis:

The "New York Times"-bestselling author returns with a remarkable novel of espionage and revenge. Filled with suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, "A Darker Place" once again proves that When it comes to thriller writers, [Higgins] stands well above the crowd.--(Associated Press).

Synopsis:

Sean Dillon is back, and the world is at stake

An eminent Iranian scientist has made a startling breakthrough in nuclear weapons research, but he cant stand the thought of his regime owning the bomb. He would run if he could, but if he does, his family dies. He is desperate, and he doesnt know what to do.

It is up to Sean Dillon and the Prime Ministers private army to think of 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 pull it off.

But plans have a way of going awry. And as the operation races from Paris and Syria to Iran and the Saudi Arabian desert, the only certainty is that blood will be spilled.

Synopsis:

Outspoken Russian writer Alexander Kurbsky wanted to "disappear" into the West. To avoid the wrath of the ruling elite, he makes elaborate plans with covert experts Charles Ferguson and Sean Dillon for his escape.

It's a real coup for the West-except for one thing: Kurbsky is still working for the Russians. And his master plan is about to unfold.
