A Darker Place is considered to be a Sean Dillon novel, although he’s barely in the novel and does very little. Taking center stage in the novel is Alexander Kurbsky, a famed Russian novelist who was a former paratrooper in the Soviet and Russian armies. He defects from Russia with the help of Dillon’s team, except it’s all a setup by Vladimir Putin to crack the Prime Minister’s private army.

Even though Dillon is largely irrelevant in the novel, there was a lot to like. Among them are the flow of the narration and ease of the writing style. It was a nice, clean read. Alexander Kurbsky is a compelling character. The plot was strong as the novel took on many twists and turns. Kurbsky is ostensibly the villain but he had enough valor and honor that there was always doubt when reading it that he would stay the villain, and ultimately the real villains were the Russians pulling the strings behind the scenes. I didn’t care much for the crazed Afghan that appears at the end of the novel and becomes a pivotal character even though he is introduced so late. By and large this novel worked for me and I would recommend it.

Sean Dillon did not kill anybody in this book. In fact, he was on holiday almost the entire time. Two new characters were introduced, both disenchanted Russian soldiers. It is not clear how big a part they will play in future works by this author. The story introduced a rather interesting plot line and it maintained the mystery for about three-quarters of the book and I liked it a lot. the background for the two new characters was painstakingly done with satisfying results. It seems that Higgins has traded bodies for story-line development. ( )

A famous Russian writer and ex-paratrooper named Alexander Kurbsky is fed up with the Putin government and decides he wants to “disappear” into the West. He is under no illusions, however, about how the news will be greeted at home, having seen too many of his countrymen die mysteriously at the hands of the thuggish Russian security services, so he makes elaborate plans with Charles Ferguson, Sean Dillon, and the rest of the group known informally ( )

Slight better than the last instalment of the Sean Dillon saga but still nothing like Higgins earlier works.

Overall, an average choice for something to fill in your time if you've got no better options. ( )
