The new bestseller from the original thrill-seeker - Jack Higgins. In Higgins' acclaimed bestseller Dark Justice, intelligence operative Sean Dillon and his colleagues in Britain and the United States beat back a terrible enemy, but at an equally terrible cost.

Consumed by grief and rage, Dillon, Blake, Ferguson and all who loved Hannah swear vengeance, no matter where it takes them. But they have no idea of the searing journey upon which they are about to embark - nor of the war which will change them all.… (mer)

There is a good deal of suspense near the conclusion of this book. Dillon is on the trail again except he does what he has to do with fewer bullets. This book also features the team transitioning: sad to see one of the most important go but the future looks brighter. This book also transitions from the multi scenes of violence in Ireland to a more international flavor. ( )

Quality of this series has definitely been on a downhill slide for the last 4 novels. Without Mercy is moderately better than the last three, but not by much.

Reading about Sean Dillon flying about with one or two other people in a near supersonic (972 km/h) Citation X jet sipping champagne whilst calling home base on his magical codex secure mobile phone to look up the next plot development in "cyberspace" has certainly devalued the thrill of this espionage thriller series.

Gone are the days of standing in the rain at a street corner, properly tailing people and proper hard work. Now it's all just call Roper and have him look it up on the computer, or use this handy pre-arranged plane/car/boat. It's all just a bit silly really; you can tolerate a certain amount of deviation from reality in fiction but when everything starts verging on fantasy in a supposed 'real life' book I find my interest waning.

If I didn't already own books 14-18 I wouldn't be bothered to buy them after the quality level of the last four books. I really hope it improves, either that or I get trapped in an airport with no alternative but to read them or die of boredom... either/or really. ( )

Was O.K., Mostly dealt with Dillion getting revenge for what happened in previous book (Dark Justice) to supervisor "Hanah". Lost some if haven't read Dark Justice first. ( )
