Publisher Comments:

Intrigue in the halls of power, blood in the streets— the master of suspense returns with a novel of dark passion and darker deeds.

After almost two score books, Higgins knows how to fire up a thriller” wrote Publishers Weekly about the autho‛s latest book, The Killing Ground.“I‛s all pure Higgins: almost every shot hits square between the eyes, and all the characters are hard lads indeed” But none of them harder than the heroes—and villains—of Rough Justice.

Dispatched by the President to report on the state of still troubled Kosovo, his trusted agent Blake Johnson runs into a military man there named Harry Miller, who has the same task from the British Prime Minister. They band together just in time to stop a Russian officer from torching a mosque—or rather, Miller stops him, with a bullet to the forehead.

This action will have considerable consequences, not only for Miller and Johnson and their associates, including Britai‛s Sean Dillon, but for a great many people, all the way to the top of the governments of the United States, Britain, and Russia. Death begets death, and revenge leads only to revenge, and before the chain reaction of events is done—from Kosovo to London to Beirut to Ireland to Moscow—there will be plenty of both.

Rich with all the ingredients that have made the author justly admired, Rough Justice is further proof that, in the words of the Associated Press,“When it comes to thriller writers, one name stands well above the crowd—Jack Higgins”

Review:

"The solid 15th entry in Higgins's Sean Dillon thriller series (after The Killing Ground) finds aging, arthritic ex-gangster Harry Salter retired from active operations, leaving Dillon, once the IRA's most feared enforcer, as the real leader of the loose gang of stalwart lads who covertly battle the foes of Western civilization. A newcomer to the team, Maj. Harry Miller, on the surface a mild-mannered MP who's in reality the British prime minister's secret hit man, hooks up with series regular Blake Johnson in Kosovo, where the Russians, intent on reclaiming old glory, are stirring up trouble. Meanwhile, Islamic fundamentalists are intent on bringing Britain to its knees. The action moves swiftly amid a variety of foreign locales, including Moscow, London and Beirut, to a climax that will leave readers asking themselves, evidence to the contrary, whether the great game is really over." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In Kosovo, American Blake Johnson and Major Harry Miller of Britain band together just in time to stop a rogue Russian captain from desecrating a helpless village. Actually, Miller stops him...with a couple of bullets to the head.

In the world of covert operations, death begets death-revenge leads only to revenge. And before the explosive situation is put to rest, there will be plenty of both.
