Some of Higgins greats characters come together to take
out a threat from the past.
Sean Dillion and Sara Gideon, along with a host of big
named characters from previous books, fight an old enemy
with a new twist in RAIN ON THE DEAD from Jack Higgins.
Jack Higgins reintroduces a character from Sean's past. A

Unfortunately for them, Cazalet has guests with him,
including black ops specialist Sean Dillon and his
colleague, Afghan war hero Captain Sara Gideon.
The Chechens do not survive the night, but Dillon is
as to how they even got on the island. What he discovers
sends a chill through his bones—a name from very far back
Dillon’s past. If this man is working with the terrorists
now, the assassination attempt is only the beginning—and
next time, the results might be much, much different.
