The Midnight Bell by Jack Higgins

I had been looking forward to reading the next book in this series for a while and I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed being close to all the old characters in this series. They were well done as always. I look forward to reading the next in the series. Sean is wonderful as always. The storyline is fantastic. Keep the good writing coming. I received an ebook copy of this book from Firsttoread for a fair and honest opinion.

The bell rings at midnight, as death requires it. Irish proverb From the dean of intrigue novelists (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) comes a knife-edge story of terrorism and revenge. 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, D.C., a special projects director with the CIA, frustrated at not getting permission from the President for his daring anti-terrorism plan, decides to put it in motion anyway. He knows he s right the nation will thank him later. 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. Filled with event, driven by characters of complexity and passion, The Midnight Bell is a remarkable novel from the architect of the modern thriller (The Huffington Post).”

This gets a five out of five stars from me.
