A famous Russian writer and ex-paratrooper named Alexander Kurbsky has gotten fed up with the Putin government, and decides he wants to âdisappearâ 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 as the âPrime Ministerâs private armyâ for his escape and concealment.
Itâs a real coup for the West except for one thing: Kurbsky is still working for the Russians. The plan is to infiltrate British and American intelligence at the highest levels, and he has his own motivations for doing the most effective job possible. He does not care what he has to do or where he has to goâ¦or whom he has to kill.
Filled with suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, A Darker Place once again proves that, in the words of the Associated Press, âWhen it comes to thriller writers, one name stands well above the crowdâJack Higgins.â
This edition also contains A Darker Place
