A Devil is Waiting
- By: Jack Higgins
- Narrated by: Michael Page
- Length: 7 hrs and 54 mins
The President is coming to London, but not to an entirely warm welcome. A fanatical mullah is offering a blessing to anyone who will assassinate the President, and though most London Muslims think the mullah has crossed the line, a few think otherwise. Urgently, Sean Dillon, General Charles Ferguson, and the rest of the small band known as the “Prime Minister’s private army” are called in, augmented by an extra-ordinary new recruit, an intelligence captain and Afghan war hero named Sara Gideon.
The Usual "Higgins Like" Story
- By Amazon Customer on 06-25-12
A familar Higgins story
What did you like best about A Devil is Waiting? What did you like least?
The fast pace is always present in Higgins books. Too predictable and not too believable.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
try to make it a little believable. It is too much like most of the other books by Higgins.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
Good in a Higgins sort of way, but I am tiring of the same themes, not much changes book to book. Too much killing.

Good performance, boring story

Well worth the time!
Would you listen to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor again? Why?
Yes, Excellent voice of reader, very emotional story.
What other book might you compare Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor to and why?
Clear and Present Danger. Similar characters.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I would have liked to, but I listened over several days. Next long driving trip I will listen again.
Any additional comments?
The story seems real. Things don't always work out according to plan, just like real life.
There were a few parts of the story that I wished were more clear, like where did the shooters come from in the Dr. rescue and why Seals shooting at a pick-up did not make the pick-up stop,crash or kill the driver?? Just some loose ends here and there.
