Teaming up with Justing Richards, Jack Higgins writes a new novel. The story rises up like a storm, making it impossible to put down the book. Richards gives a new touch to the story while the real Jack Higgins style is kept without getting into the cliche of his last books. Dillon: your have been surpassed by two kids of only fifteen!
