Publisher's Summary

Dispatched by the president to report on the state of troubled Kosovo, his trusted agent ,Blake Johnson, runs into a military man there named Harry Miller, who has the same task from the British prime minister. They band together just in time to stop a Russian officer from torching a mosque - or rather, Miller stops him, with a bullet to the forehead.

This action will have considerable consequences, not only for Miller and Johnson, and their associates, including Britain's Sean Dillon, but for a great many people, all the way to the top of the governments of the United States, Britain, and Russia.

Death begets death, and revenge leads only to revenge, and before the chain reaction of events is done, from Kosovo to London to Beirut to Ireland to Moscow, there will be plenty of both.

Filled with all the ingredients that have made him justly admired, Rough Justice is further proof that, in the words of the Associated Press, "When it comes to thriller writers, one name stands well above the crowd - Jack Higgins."

    "Not my favorite Jack Higgins"

    This didn't reach usual Jack Higgins heights. I felt it was weaker than most. The characters not so full as in other books.

    "Hate it."

    If there was a zero i would give it to this book. I could not get into it at all. The reader was terible. I jumped ahead to see if it got better and it didn't. What a waste of a credit.

    Story
    "Good Story, Great Narration . . . but . . ."

    Jack Higgins is certainly an entertaining writer (his best is probably the WWII thriller, "The Eagle has Landed") and this story, which is set in a kind of fictional alternate universe in a post-9/11 world, certainly holds one's interest. The narration by Michael Page is also expertly done -- he manages to give almost every character (especially male characters) different-sounding voices that are remarkably diverse.

    The problem with the book is that it's actually intended as a continuation of a series of novels (apparently, this is no. 15) involving the character Sean Dillon. Dillon actually has a secondary role in this novel, but there are a number of places where Higgins refers to events that have already happened in other novels, and one gets the feeling of having walked in during the middle of the play. So, it's an entertaining and well-read audiobook -- but I wouldn't have chosen it if I had known it was part of a series.

    "Excellent reader; dull story; defective recording"

    The reader -- Michael Page -- makes this novel just listenable. He has many different voices and many different accents to distinguish the characters from one another. Sometimes a good actor reading an audiobook can justify listening to a mediocre book. Otherwise, I would not recommend this audiobook. It struck me especially strange that the Brilliance company (who recorded the book) apparently did not listen to it themselves before releasing it. At several points in the reading (maybe eight or ten -- I didn't count) passages are repeated. Editing should have caught these duplications and eliminated them, but didn't. Aside from this technical error, the book has a tedious story exacerbated by mediocre writing. If you like action and adventure stories, give this book a pass, and look for other books read by Michael Page.

    "Couldn't get through Part 1 of this book."

    I tried..I really did. The narration was dull, several times the same paragraph was re-read.
    There were so many characters I couldn't keep them all straight and the dialog went on and on. Thank goodness I got this at the $5.95 special price!
