This one brought a tear to my eye. There was a whole lot of tenderness throughout this book. Mercy was shown even to the first of the betrayers. The other betrayers lost their lives essentially at their own hand. Of course, the essential story is, as usual, off-the-wall but it still captures one's interest. ( )

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? ( )

This novel is number 6 in the Dillon series and is basically a kidnapping & ransom story with the details jiggled a little.

The illegitimate daughter of the President of the United States is kidnapped by Israeli hardliners in an attempt to blackmail him into signing off on the wholesale attack of Israel's enemies - Iran, Iraq & Syria.

Predictably the hero, Sean Dillon, enters the fray and after a few ups and downs the day is saved yet again.

Overall, it's not a bad book, it doesn't redefine the genre by any means but if you're looking for something to pass the time it will do the job.

I do have to say though, 6 books in to the Sean Dillon series the plot paths are getting a little stale: problem occurs visit someone from past who miraculously has the solution, or miraculously is in strife and will trade help for the solution go on to save the day after a temporary set back occurs.

Am hoping the next one mixes things up a bit. ( )

I picked this up off my dad's nightstand on a rainy summer day when I was 16 and I actually got really into it, which surprised me because I had never read a thriller/action type book in my life. It's not a masterpiece, but it was a fun read. ( )
