I thought this book was mediocre at best. Although this is the first Jack Higgins novel I’ve read, I have seen movies made from his books.
In considering the high praise this author has received, I was disappointed with this book. I thought the action was a bit lackluster, or maybe too predictable.
Are other readers tiring, as I am, of characters who are independently wealthy, but choose to be superheros for something to do? Honestly, I expected more.

Edmond Gagnon‘s review

I picked this book up in a small store in Italy, one of only a few English books there.
It was a pleasant surprise and a good read…a bit slow to start, but once I had an idea where the plot was going I had to finish it. The author was a real-life sex crimes prosecutor, who draws from her own experience to tell you a good story.
A very good read.
