"a thrill a nanosecond"
Kate Rashid AKA The Countess of Loch Dhu is young,
beautiful, and the wealthiest woman in the world. She is
half Arab and half English and uses the money to gain even
more power than she already has because she has
declared a jihad against some very powerful individuals
including the president of the United States. The
American's top spymaster Blake Johnson, and his British
counterpart General Charles Ferguson and his most lethal
agent Sean, an ex-IRA enforcer are her current targets.
She blames them for the death of her three brothers that
she loved deeply. She doesn't care they were trying to
kill the President and Blake. She wants her revenge and
she will have it or die trying. Assisting her in her
diabolical plot is her newly discovered relative, Rubert
Dauncey. They have something very special planned for
their enemies but they don't realize that those they want
dead are one step behind or ahead of them, waiting to catch
them off guard.
A Jack Higgins novel is usually a thrill a second but
MIDNIGHT RUNNER is a thrill a nanosecond. It starts off at
warp speed and never slows down for a moment racing towards
a life and death finale that will leave readers breathless
but satisfied. Fans familiar with this series will be
happily reunited with some old and familiar characters
while those reading the author for the first time will
immediately want to go out and find his back list so they
can read it ASAP.
