Summary:

On the pavement, Hannah Bernstein was trying to haul herself up, clutching at the railings as Dillon got to her. "You're all right, just hold on to me." But there was blood coming down her face, and he was afraid. In Jack Higgins's 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. One of them was shot, another run down in the street. Both were expected to survive - but only one of them does. As Detective Superintendent Hannah Bernstein of Special Branch lies recuperating in the hospital, a dark shadow sent by a figure from the past steals across the room and finishes the job. 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, both physical and emotional, upon which they are about to embark - nor of the war that will change them all. Filled with dark suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, this is a novel that once again proves that, in the words of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, "Jack Higgins is the dean of intrigue novelists. He has no equal."

    This book I will say was quite silly. The action was "Keystone Cop" and the ending quite predictable. The premiss of the book and story line would have been good but the story that came out lacked a fullness of a Frederick Forsyth or a Dan Brown. It reminded me of reading a comic book or a young adult murder mystery like the Hardy Boys. Though it was silly I still gave it a medium score because of the laughs it gave me as the bad guys just could not shoot straight. If nothing else is pressing this is a quick listen being only 6 disks. Not recommended for intense focus. Just enjoy the story in the background.

    I thought there were way too many characters to keep them straight in this book by listening to it. I had a hard time keeping track of who the good and bad guys were. This was my first Jack Higgins and not sure if I would listen to one again. Might just read in print so that I could keep track of characters better. I thought the plot was a nice one and there were some likeable characters, but just didn't really do anything for me.

    I've read better Jack Higgins novels before. A little hard to follow at times.

    Without Mecy - Jack Higgins I was disappointed in this book and I am a fan of Jack Higgins. It was incredible to me that the seasoned Jack Higgins would have his British characters in a booth in a pub discussing their affairs whilst the "baddy" was in the adjoining booth listening . . .I was sad at the end of Hannah - I thought this unnecessry . . .

    I did not enjoy this book at all. After listening to 3 of the cd's I quit. I couldn't follow the story line and it was very uninteresting. I do not recommend it.

    Very disappointing. Very hard to follow. Too many characters and they are not well defined. Don't waste your time on this.

    What a disappointment! As a Jack Higgins fan from way back this made no sense.
