Summary

The president's daughter has been kidnapped by Jewish terrorists. With the world watching, Sean Dillon is called in to find her before the commander in chief is forced to make a decision which could rip the world apart.

Twenty years ago a young war hero saved a life and began a passionate affair. Now that young war hero is president of the United States, and a souvenir from his past, a beautiful daughter he never knew existed, surfaces as the first of many secrets to be kept from public knowledge. But someone, somewhere, has uncovered the truth.

The girl is seized by religious zealots, and unless the president complies with their demands, her execution is certain. Yet if he gives in, the Middle East will ignite in war. He calls in the only men who can help: Sean Dillon and Blake Johnson, two notorious specialists who will do whatever it takes to find the president's daughter. But with time running out, can they get to her before a desperate father makes a truly momentous decision - one the whole world will regret?

Awful performance

I can't listen to it, stilted and irritating. Unfortunately I'm unable to comment on the story, just can't get past the reader...

Another great story by Jack Higgins and the hero .

Sean Dillon brings off another amazing story with his heroism and wit. There is none better than he as a rogue that can save The world and and a beautiful woman in distress.

Disappointing

Not an enjoyable listen at all. The narrator has a rather monotonal quality and the character 'voices' were indistinct and often overlapped. The story had a number of logical holes and didn't hang together somehow. Disappointing and a little annoying.
