Higgins has been around a long time. I have read some of his books including the "Storm Warning" which was one of my favorites. The Judas Gate is a action packed novel with lots of current events woven into the adventure. It is not his best effort; but, a real suspense thriller that you won't want to put down! Very enjoyable read.

General Ferguson, Sean Dillon and company hear a tape Major Roper made. It takes place in Afghanistan in which a horde of terrorists led by Shamrock killed several Army Rangers and a British medical team. They hear the euphoric voice of Shamrock whose accent is English. There exists plausible evidence he has ties to Al Qaeda; although unknown to Dillon and company this killer answers to Osama's main henchman in Britain the Preacher. After listening to the tape taken from the Afghan battlefields by Major Roper, General Ferguson thinks a Taliban attack was led by an educated upper-class Englishman. The General and Dillon want to track down the traitor and put him on trial for treason. Daniel Holley, as lethal as Dillon is, joins the team but he makes the mistake of telling his business partner and close friend Hamid Malik what he is doing. Malik considers Hill a member of his family; he worries about him and confides his concerns bed friend of thirty years Ali Hakin; unaware that hat his pal is an Al-Qaeda agent. Hakim informs the Preacher that Dillon and company are searching for him. The Preacher welcomes the news by setting up a chain of events leading to a confrontation on is terms in a crowded sector of Algiers populated by the dregs of society. Highly regarded for his Dillon suspense thrillers, Jack Higgins' latest is the usual strong tale that feels plausible as the author extrapolates the story line from the headlines. The plot is filled with triple crosses accentuated by the addition of a new player to the team, who readers will wonder if Hill is to be trusted or a pure capitalist crossing back and forth between sides. Once started The Judas Gate is impossible to put down. Harriet Klausner

The Jack Higgins books are interesting reading, which keeps his publisher busy as he has developed a big fan base, including me. But Judas Gate starts out with the wildest improbabilities that make it take so much longer to get into the story. If such wild improbabilities are all that propel these novels, well, okay then. I'll still read them, just don't insult other authors and give them five stars.

I am a fan of the Sean Dillon series, however the Judas Gate didn't have the usual suspense and punch that the previous novels have had. It is worth reading, but I hope the next one is better.

This was another typical book from this author. I enjoyed it as it was a quick read but, it was not great.

Jack Higgins brings back his band of counterterrorists, Charles Ferguson, Sean Dillon, and others to keep the Queen and country safe. This time the book's theme is on home grown terrorists that have embraced the philosophy of Osama Bin Laden that the only good westerner is a dead westerner. The Queen's counterterrorism team takes on the Preacher, Shamrock, several Algerians, former IRA fighters and a bevy of gun wielding thugs in an action filled, easily reading yarn. Good escapist reading by one of the thriller genre's masters.

Higgins has always been a favorite author, but this just feels like rewarmed drivel. I tried for a week to get into this one, but it literally put me to sleep early every night. Dillon, maybe it is time to hangup your gun and watch James Bond reruns. Sadly, not recommended.

This is quite typical of Higgin's 'Sean Dillon' series. Most of the characters have populated his other novels, which adds the comfortable aura of familiarity.I enjoyed this novel as much as any of the Higgin's novels, have a few more on the shelf to read and I will, but I'll mix them with other authors.For anyone who enjoys Higgins, this novel will not disappoint.

Well written fast paced entry in the Sean Dillon series...new interesting villains and very good development of past allies in this story that spans from Ireland to England, to Algeria and Afghanistan. Lot's of fun reading with plenty of action to keep you moving and looking to see what's around the corner.
