Higgins in classic style. He now has the Arab world to play in and Russian criminals seeking power to complicate the plot, plus a few new faces in Ferguson’s team … all in all he is thoroughly enjoying himself in another escapist yarn.

The Killing Ground Synopsis

For intelligence operative Sean Dillon, it is a routine passport check. But the events it will lead to will be as bloody as any he has ever known. The man he stops at Heathrow airport is Caspar Rashid, born and bred in England, but with family ties to a Bedouin tribe fiercely wedded to the old ways, as Rashid has just found out to his pain. His thirteen-year-old daughter, Sara, has been kidnapped by Rashid's own father and taken to Iraq to be married to a man known as the ‘Hammer of God’, one of the Middle East's most feared terrorists.

 

Dillon has had his own run-ins with the tribe, and when the distraught man begs him for help, he sees a chance to settle some old scores – but Dillon has no idea of the terrible chain of events he is about to unleash, nor of the implacable enemies he is about to gain.

 

Before his journey is done, many men will die – and Dillon may be one of them.
