Publisher's Summary

"The bell tolls at midnight as death requires it". But will it finally toll for Sean Dillon and company in the explosive new thriller of murder, terrorism and revenge from a Sunday Times best-selling author?
In Ulster, Northern Ireland, a petty criminal kills a woman in a drunken car crash. Her sons swear revenge.
In London, Sean Dillon and his colleagues in the 'Prime Minister's private army', fresh from defeating a deadly al-Qaeda operation, receive a warning: 'You may think you have weakened us, but you have only made us stronger'.
In Washington, DC, a special projects director with the CIA, frustrated at not getting permission from the president for his daring antiterrorism plan, decides to put it in motion anyway.
Soon the ripples from these events will meet and overlap, creating havoc in their wake. Desperate men will act, secrets will be revealed - and the midnight bell will toll.

Dreadfully narrated

Save your money, buy a book with a decent narrator, the guy sounds like he has a speech impediment

The Midnight Bell

Good read. Would be an ideal companion on a long flight or relaxing in the sun poolside. Very typical Jack Higgins - up there but not his very best.
