The hero of The Eagle Has Landed returns in a Cold War adventure that pits two IRA veterans against a ruthless mercenary whose only ideology is greed. Terrorist-for-hire Frank Barry has been wreaking havoc in Germany and France, with backing from the KGB. His next mission might be his deadliest, as Barry plans to steal a state-of-the-art missile and sell it to the highest bidder.   Only Barry's longtime rivals, retired IRA gunman Liam Devlin and his ally Martin Brosnan, can prevent the missile from falling into the wrong hands.

It is very interesting to watch how an author's characters grow in complexity as the author continues a series. Higgins forms a good plot, sometimes misleading a reader, sometimes leaving the reader to grope. He is dependable in that his characters, though using evil means as easily as they might use good means, in good prevails. Since this is an 1982 Copywrite, it is great that he is still pumping out this type of fiction with a few facts now and then totantalize., ( )
