Rain on the Dead Jack Higgins Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The past comes back to haunt black ops specialist Sean Dillon and his colleagues in this New York Times bestselling novel of terrorism, revenge, and a very old nemesis...

On a dark summer night, two Chechen mercenaries emerge from the waters off Nantucket to kill a high-value target, the former President of the United States. Unfortunately for them, the president has guests that night, including Sean Dillon and his colleague, Afghan war hero Captain Sara Gideon.

The Chechens do not survive the night, but Dillon is curious about how they even got on the island. What he discovers sends a chill through his bones—a name from Dillon’s distant past. If this man is working with the terrorists now, the assassination attempt is only the beginning—and next time, the results may be much, much different.

  • What Ever Happened to Jack Higgins?

    By RedDog1
    Possibly the worst political "thriller" I've ever read--AND, the worst by Jack Higgins ever. Just going though the writing motions...and the motions of cashing a check. I'm done.

  • Terrible

    By Gatormagee
    So.....hard.......to.....read...I gave up 1/3 of the way through. The most disappointing part is I can never get that 3 hours of my life back, or my money.

    Very disappointed with this latest Higgins story. The plot is just way too far fetched. Facts are just totally inaccurate. Like throwing stones into the Thames from Hyde Park. Errors such as Piece instead of Peace, and way too much going on in the story line. Probably the last Higgins' I will read. Pity really, the early ones were quite good.
  • Boring

    By MarkWhiteLotus
    Super boring. Found myself skipping large amounts of the book. Lots of characters getting killed and no real plot advancement. It was like... "Who cares?"

    What if...this book was not written by Harry Patterson (Jack Higgins)? This is the second book in the Dillon series in the last fews years that smacks of ghost writing. What if...Mr. Patterson is auditioning another writer to carry on the series? He is 85. Maybe thinking about retirement? If so, we can only hope that this guy is not the one. BTW, came to this theory by page 88... Ferguson does not talk like this. Dillon drives the Mini - not the bad guys. I could go on.
