Publishing Deal - Jack Higgins

From the Bookseller:
HarperCollins has acquired Jack Higgins’ new novel A Darker Place. Wayne Brookes, who acquired UK and Commonwealth rights excluding Canada for a high six-figure sum from Ed Victor, said the novel was Higgins’ take on the case of former Russian security official Alexander Litvinenko.
Hat tip to Petrona!

Yikes. I assumed Jack Higgins was dead!

I agree, based on "The Killing Ground." No way that one was written by Harry/Jack. Kinda like Ludlum's last stuff, except the "ghost" author was identified, or at least acknowledged. Too different...
