The Killing Ground Jack Higgins
Publisher: Penguin Publishing Group
Jack Higgins, the undisputed master of action and suspense is back with a brand new adventure featuring the unstoppable Sean Dillon. Along with the grace of its narrative gymnastics, what really elevates the “KillingGround” above the doldrums of its tropes are the central relationships, one between Sam and Ian and the other between German and the younger Chook ( Aaron Glenane, who succeeds in stealing a good portion of the movie). Lo, through the German destruction o the German army trapped in the Falaise pocket. The Killing Ground covers the entire campaign from mid July with the Allied attacks on Caen and St. The canny, quiet restraint at work here not only heightens the tension, but helps to make “Killing Ground” seem less a horror exercise than a straight-up, stripped- down suspenser. Kevin said: The gang continues to fight a good fight. For intelligence operative Sean Dillon, it is a routine passport check. If, for some reason, decades' worth of horror movies on the subject have yet to convince you that going out into an isolated area with no cellphone service alone and unarmed is a recipe for brutal murder, Australian writer-director Damien Power's Killing Ground might be the deciding factor. The Killing Ground has 1767 ratings and 107 reviews. Publishers Weekly said that "the proceedings are complicated; it helps if the reader is a veteran of this long-running series. The Killing Ground is a fiction novel written by Jack Higgins in 2007. Kirkus Reviews said "can any other thrillmeister equal the Higgins corpse- per-page count?". Though very effective when used, Leah Curtis' first-rate score may be most notable for how seldom it surfaces at all.
