Oliver Grant had only one thing in his life that made him vulnerable – his sister Hannah. Hannah was quite a bit younger than Oliver and while she lived with her grandmother, Oliver made it his responsibility to care for her financially.

Jack Higgins' books are exciting and real page turners but I don't like the language and sex part of his books. I didn't have a book to take to the gym to read while I work out and so I grabbed this one. It was exciting and I had to finish it to see what would happen but the language bothered me. If you don't mind some strong language, you will probably enjoy reading his books.

Seemed more like a filler between books for this author. Lots of daring-do for a courageous hero. Not much tension though

I finished it, but it wasn't terribly interesting.

Audio Book: intriguing with a dramatic surprise ending.

I read this under the title "The Run to Morning," which, you have to admit, isn't the greatest of titles, not that Bloody Passage is much better.

This was a good, short Jack Higgins. Mostly set in Sicily, Oliver has to break a prisoner out of a Libyan prison.
