Publisher's Summary

A famous Russian writer and ex-paratrooper named Alexander Kurbsky has gotten fed up with the Putin government, and decides he wants to "disappear" 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 "Prime Minister’s private army" for his escape and concealment.

It’s 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 go...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, “When it comes to thriller writers, one name stands well above the crowd - Jack Higgins.”

Critic Reviews

"The final dustup is a little rushed, but the crisp writing shows Higgins to be on top of his game." ( Publishers Weekly)

not the usual standard

The naivete of Roper, General Ferguson and Sean Dillon was disappointing and not in keeping with Jack Higgins standards.
I also found it interesting the for a Sean Dillon book there was surprisingly little Sean Dillon in the book. I suppose it might be because this was an Abridged version.
--It was a fun read (or listen) but not up to Jack Higgins standard.

A Darker Place

Excellent reader. So so story. Didn't grab me. I will not listen to it again.

Any Vince Flynn book is far better.
