I found this tale to be very well written and always entertaining. Some of the details were a little hard to relate to like how easily someone can be dispatched, but the character is balanced out by his affection and loyalty to those closest to him. I recommend this for older readers.

This is another of the Sean Dillion series and as good as any of them. Sean is a truly dispicable character in that he has no sense of compassion when dispatching someone, intended target or not. That said, he does seem to care for those close to him and will do anything to protect him. The premise of this story provides a solid foundation for an excellent tale of intrigue, mayhem and murder. If you are a Sean Dillion fan, you'll enjoy this from cover to cover.

In 1944 Mao Tse-tung signs a document that would allow the British to stay in Hong Kong until 2097. But the documents disappeared in a plane crash. Later in 1993 England¿s prime minister learns of the document¿s existence. Former IRA terrorist, Sean Dillon, now working for British Intelligence (MI5), is sent to keep people away from the document. But the Sicilian Mafia, also, knows of the document¿s existence and wants the document to rule Hong Kong. So Dillon must keep the Sicilian Mafia away from the site where the document lays. This book was probably the best action packed book I have ever read.

On Dangerous Ground HAS to be one of my favorite books i have ever read. It is fast paced and keeps you reading non-stop. The plot and characters are great. Especially Sean Dillon, he does and says everything you wish you could say in situations you get into. He also has a almost weird sense of humor. But this book is great and i recommend it to all readers.
