Publisher's Summary

Introducing Sean Dillon: terrorist. Assassin. Hero.

Sean Dillon is a hired killer. The IRA, the PLO, ETA - he's worked for them all. Now, with the Gulf War raging, the Iraqis need his services for an apocalyptic strike at the heart of the West.

If it succeeds, it will shake the world to its foundations. Leaders will be wiped out, terror will spread: a devastating blow against democracy.

Dillon has 10 Downing Street in his sights, but British intelligence are on his trail. They have hired a killer to stalk a killer - a mortal enemy who is hell-bent on revenge. As the lightning strikes and the bullets fly, Sean Dillon will discover how it feels to be at the eye of the storm....

    Story
    "Dillon Doesn't Inspire"

    I had often wanted to try this series in the past but never quite got to it somehow. Audible publishing book one after all these years was therefore a chance I was happy to take. It's a decent story and the series has been very popular. Also in its favour is the fact that Jonathan Oliver has a great range of character voices and accents and he does the cast real justice.

    For me though the central character just didn't match his legend. He is a master of disguise who apparently outsmarts intelligence forces all over the world. Yet he trusts the untrustworthy, plans major operations literally overnight and explains things like his travel plans and aliases at the drop of a hat. Simply put I just didn't get him.

    The story itself moves along at a decent pace so I was reasonably entertained. I can imagine why people enjoy these books but as I couldn't tune into Dillon as a central character I won't be continuing with the series personally.

    "What a let down"
    What disappointed you about Eye of the Storm?

    Started listening to this and as I'm sure the story is a good one I could only listen to 2 hours in. The narrator is awful, ruined the listen.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jonathan Oliver’s performances?

    No

    "Eye of the Storm"

    Found the story and narration to be very good. The pace of the story is excellent and Jack Higgins keeps everything that's good in the series, in this story.

    If you have read or listened to any other book in the series you will not be disappointed.
