'The Killing Ground' Delivers

'The Killing Ground' is a corker from the reigning master of the thriller Jack Higgins. It's replete with villains of all stripes and sizes, such as, turned-out-to-pasture IRA enforcers bemoaning their fates with bottles of Bushmills whisky in hand, Russian Mafia mobsters working both sides of the fence, and crack-shot Iraqi terrorists, as well as the requisite good guys, of course. The shrewd General Ferguson and computer-savvy Major Roper are on hand. And so are the not-so-good guys ex-IRA hit man Sean Dillon and his young cohort Bily Salter, who are aligned on the side of law and order nowadays. All told, 'The Killing Ground' is a zesty broth of blood-soaked suspense and derring-do with a shockingly high body count in the espionage arena, where everything is never black and white but, in this case, grey and bloodred.

This is my first book by this author so I did not know it was a series. It is very hard to follow who is who in the book the author seems to jump from one person to the next without a real plan. The ending is very dull kind of like the author just decided to end the book. Worth reading but dont buy it.

    Setting an ominous trend

    This book and the previous two novels with Sean Dillon have begun a downward slide from the exciting and complex plots of the previous books. Only because Mr. Higgins has become one of my favourite writers have I read the novels vainly hoping he would regain his form. These last three Sean books appear to have been written to a schedule and the plots within have not been sufficiently developed. Also the action is truncated and less involving. I used to read the books cover to cover in a very brief time. Unfortunately I now read when time allows rather than making the time to finish. Bring back the old Mr. Higgins. Note I have read most if not all of the other non Sean books also, and they were also excellent, so I have a lot of Higgins work to base my critique on. Please bring back the old Mr. Higgins.
