Overview

The Judas Gate (Sean Dillon Series #18) by Jack Higgins

Treachery has a price, in the mesmerizing new thriller from the New York Times–bestselling writer.

With his latest novels, Jack Higgins has showed himself “on top of his game” (Publishers Weekly), his books infused with “a timely edginess [that] pulls you along like the surprisingly strong current of the Thames River” (Associated Press). The Judas Gate is just as timely — and just as surprising.

A disturbing audiotape has made its way to General Charles Ferguson, adviser to the Prime Minister, and from him to the President of the United States: battlefield chatter from an ambush in Helmand province, Afghanistan, in which twelve U.S. Army Rangers and a British medical team died. Most of the Taliban voices are Afghan, but not all of them — shockingly, some of them are British, and one in particular, the voice of the commander, bears an Irish accent.

The idea that one of their own could be responsible for such a massacre is appalling, and Ferguson immediately puts Sean Dillon in charge of hunting the traitor down. But Dillon has his own way of doing things and, he will eventually discover, so does his quarry. Not only will Dillon be going to war — the war will be coming to him.

Filled with suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, The Judas Gate is an unforgettable novel by the man “who has produced some of the best suspense fiction of the past fifty years” (The San Diego Union-Tribune).

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.

Lot's of fun reading with plenty of action to keep you moving and looking to see what's around the corner.
