The Savage Day

ebook

A desperate man goes up against the IRA to buy his freedom in this heart-racing thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Midnight Bell.

After surviving the war in Korea, Simon Vaughan decided the only loyalty he had was to the man in the mirror. For a while, the high-risk job of arms dealing seemed to be just the life for him. Too bad the Greek authorities didn't see it that way when they tossed him in prison.

But now he's gotten a reprieve from an unlikely source: the British Army. And if he wants out, he's going to have to play their game.

It seems that the Irish Republican Army has made off with a half-million dollars in gold bullion. The Brits want it back. And their best bet is to send someone tough, resourceful, and completely expendable—which is Vaughan to the letter.

Venturing into the bloody underground of a violent rebellion, Vaughan must navigate a deadly maze of friends, foes, and those in between, if he's going to get the gold, get the bad guys, and get out in one piece . . .

The author of the Sean Dillon and Liam Devlin series, including the classic The Eagle Has Landed, Jack Higgins has enthralled millions of readers around the world with his explosive novels of spies and espionage, heroes and villains, and fast-paced storytelling that have made him a true mastermind of the modern thriller.
