Jack Higgins is the New York Times–bestselling author of more than sixty thrillers that have sold over 250 million copies worldwide, including The Eagle Has Landed and The Wolf at the Door. He lives in the Channel Islands. It is a unique story and is well written. the characters are a bit predictable but it is an adventure story and these people are seldom deep.

Another great Jack Higgins book. I always enjoy his writings and can hardly put them down till I finish them, then regret I have read them so fast.

Used Book

Whenever I see a Jack Higgins book on the Amazon deals page I snap it up because they are always easy reading thrillers. This one was no exception. While it was written in 1980 it doesn't show signs of age like many others and I have seen similar plot lines in several more modern thrillers.

A psychopathic but artistically gifted killer whose career sends him around the world has found a regular and satisfying source of victims. While the source is politically inspired he is not interested in political gain, only the adrenaline kick of another successful kill. Things start to go wrong when he accidentally kills an innocent young girl in a hit-and-run accident when he is getting away from the scene of another assassination. The girl is the daughter of Asa Morgan, one of England's most dangerous soldiers with a record of violent success in many dangerous flash-points around the world.

Asa vows to avenge the killing himself. Through his contacts he is able to find clues where MI5 and Scotland Yard cannot venture. But the ultimate clue is uncovered through Asa's sheer cunning.

Higgins racks up the drama with an unlikely relationship between Dr. Katherine Riley, a foremost authority on terrorist mentality, and the killer. Riley becomes part of an emotional sandwich when she slowly uncovers the truth from her friendship with Asa.

The finale is high drama and great spy-craft as the Asa, the killer, his source, the MI5, and Katherine meet in a highly charged public performance.

A page-turning and satisfying thriller - well recommended.
As a musician who has written a similar novel, Natalie's Revenge (A Frank Renzi mystery), I was eager to read Solo, by Jack Higgins. He's one of my favorite authors and I couldn't resist the piano on the cover. The opposing forces in this dark tale are two men bent on revenge. One is a concert pianist, an unlikely calling for a hit man, but one that provides a perfect cover as he plays concerts in various cities, where he kills people.

His pursuer, a British Intelligence agent described by one of his colleagues as "a right bastard," is determined to capture the man who killed his daughter.

The backgrounds of both men are carefully detailed to reveal their motives. A winsome woman psychologist provides a major complication when she becomes the love interest of both men. The action-packed opening creates the crisis that drives this book to its tense concluding showdown, an ending in which there are no winners. Great action scenes and plenty of plot twists! -- Susan Fleet, author of the Frank Renzi mystery series
I rarely read this genre, but I was in the mood for an escape from reality. The fact that the central character is a world class pianist was the primary attraction of this particular book for me. Strangely, the musical aspect of the story turned out to be the biggest obstacle to my suspension of disbelief. The notion that someone, even a very talented musician, could leave music, join the French Foreign Legion, and then return to music without any apparent difficulty is harder to accept that the elements of the thriller that comprises the primary story. The world is well populated by very talented and accomplished musicians. It takes more than talent to become a concert artist of international standing. Once such standing is achieved, it is very easy to lose the audience. Further, the picture of how a concert artist functions was a great stretch. Read this book for the main mystery, but if you are familiar with the world of classical music performance, be prepared to struggle with that aspect of the book.
I've read numerous books by this author. They are all, like this one, excellent, well written, fast paced, & with well developed characters you begin to actually care about. They are about the perfect length & Higgins focuses on the plot (unlike some famous spy thriller authors that get so swept up in technical specifics, their books become ponderous). His simple bare bones style keeps it moving & keeps you entertained. The only complaint which is one more of the genre than the book, is that like most spy thriller plots, they become predictable.
The writing is really good, peeks your interest despite knowing what's probably going to happen. At the end it gives you two zingers you don't expect. Good read
Jack Higgins has always been one of my favorite authors. He's up to a different set of tricks with this story. As the story develops, you find yourself feeling that the assassin is the hero of the book, only to find with further reading that he is the villain, and a talented one indeed. You almost wish that the ending would differ, because this piano artist is a likeable guy in many ways. Jack Higgins has the ability to craft this story so that you feel part of it and want to influence the outcome. a good read.
SPOILERS within:
Unique in a way that's quite unlike any book I've read up until now. Jack Higgins opens the story with what will set the stage for the conflict that will be at the heart of the book and then give the us the readers an intimate bio of the assassin. If done the usual way I would have been rooting for Colonel Morgan to avenge his daughter's death from the beginning, but instead I felt a peculiar attachment and sympathy for the "Crete Lover" John Mikali. This all despite it being said that during the war he fought in he killed women and children and killed somewhat indiscriminately once he became a contract killer. An added wrinkle in the form of Mikali's relationship with a doctor who could have potentially been nothing more than a loose end for him to tie up made me pity him all the more and wish he could have lived despite the lives he took.
I have been a fan of Jack Higgins from the first times I read my first Jack Higgins novel. Never a lot of fluf or padding. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a fast moving novel with unique plot.
