Summary

London, March 1918. British newspapers carry the disastrous news that the German Spring Offensive has begun, with thousands of British lives lost. Detective Sergeant Joe Keedy eagerly awaits his release from hospital and is anxious to resume the fight against crime on the Home Front.

Against this sombre backdrop, further mayhem strikes in the capital when a fire provides the diversion needed for an audacious bank robbery. The gang of criminals escape with a sizeable haul and leave one police officer dead and another gravely injured in their wake. For Detective Inspector Harvey Marmion, the investigation has a personal connection, but the task of bringing the culprits to justice will prove to be an uphill battle without Keedy, his detective partner, at his side. And nothing in this case is quite what it seems .

    It is night in Manhattan. The President of the United States is scheduled to have dinner with an old friend, but in the building across the street a man has disabled the security and stands at a window, a rifle in his hand. 
    The assassination doesn’t go according to plan, but this is only the beginning. Someone is recruiting a shadowy network of agents with the intention of creating terror. 
    Their range is broad, their identities masked, their methods subtle. White House operative Blake Johnson and his opposite number in British intelligence, Sean Dillon, set out to trace the source of the havoc, but behind the first man lies another, and behind him another still. And that man is not pleased by the interference. Soon, he will target them all: Johnson, Dillon, Dillon’s colleagues. And one of them will fall… 
    Bestselling author Jack Higgins brings us Dark Justice, a suspenseful thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. As the plot unfolds, the characters find themselves in a race against time to stop a shadowy network of agents.

He's stopped drinking, he's taking better care of himself, and he's working hard to keep a fledgling security business afloat. At a blood plasma bank, Sean frequents to earn extra income, he meets the distraught relative of Andrew Carson, a man who went missing weeks earlier on the other side of the state, with a pool of blood in the snowy driveway of his home as the only clue to the man's fate.
    
    Sean decides to help in the search for Carson and quickly finds himself immersed in a world of deception, desperation, and danger---a world in which nothing is what it seems, and few can get out of with their lives.
