Laced with explosive action and absorbing drama, each of the more than 30 novels written by Jack Higgins is an international best-seller. Several of his works have been made into major motion pictures. In Edge of Danger, this master of suspense crafts a sharp-edged tale of revenge. The Rashids are a powerful Arab family who pride themselves on financial success and an international reputation. So when they are sidestepped in critical oil-drilling negotiations, they swear an oath of vengeance against the one they hold responsible. Now it's up to operative Sean Dillion and a Washington colleague to keep the Rashids from their target--the President of the United States. Sweeping across the Middle East, Europe, and America, the Rashids' deadly plan escalates until the security of nations is at stake. Gerard Doyle's assured narration provides the perfect vehicle for the whirlwind pace and nonstop surprises in this gripping novel.

"The Rashid family motto for centuries has been "I always return," and this half-British, half-Arab family isn't happy when American and Russian interests interfere with the family oil business. Gerard Doyle's lilting Irish accent for Higgins's charming hero, Sean Dillon, helps increase the drama and foreignness of this murderous thriller. Doyle crisply and flawlessly reads of Sean's maneuvers to block attempts on the lives of world leaders while picking off the three Rashid brothers. Doyle takes listeners on an audio trip to the British Isles, and Higgins rockets us through heart-stopping adventures. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
