The sitting room had a ceiling so low that Jock White’s head almost touched it. The fireplace was large enough to stand in. There were chairs, an old sofa bed, a sideboard with a few photos from service days on it, and books everywhere, a pleasant clutter to everything.
The sitting room had a ceiling so low that Jock White’s head almost touched it. Jock White sat on the window seat, a pair of steel-rimmed army issue spectacles on the end of his nose, working his way through the papers relevant to Eric’s death.

Jack Higgins A Season in Hell. A rather interesting thing happened with this book. A disgraced British Army officer turned gun-for-hire, Jago, is employed by the mysterious Mr Smith to dog her footsteps. The astonishing thing was that Jago actually became enormously popular with the readers and I received many letters asking me to use him again. The book is another example of twin obsessions in my writing: East End gangsters and the wonderful city of London. Revenge is a season in hell’.
