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.

'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.

Billy Salter is now part of Major Ferguson¿s Secret Intelligence Service and like Sean Dillon, killing is just another tool in his arsenal. Sean and Billy are working passport patrol when they notice Mr. Casper Rashid and his wife Mollie entering the country after traveling to several known terrorist-sponsored countries. They are detained and brought in for interrogation. Rashid tells them that his thirteen year old daughter Sara has been kidnapped taken to Baghdad by her paternal grandfather where she will marry the Hammer Of God, well known and respected by al Qaeda and Osama. If the British agents will help him get back his daughter, he will give them all the considerable information he knows on the Army of God and other terrorist organizations. The deal is struck but Sara¿s grandfather gets word that they are coming to rescue her. He hands his grandchild over to her betrothed who takes Sara to her uncle¿s estate in Hazar. It takes a lot of work and subterfuge but the British agents rescue Sara. Their troubles are not over because Russian President Putin using an intermediary puts out a hit on Ferguson and his crew while the Islamic terrorists do the same. Much blood will be shed, including some on the right side before things are temporarily settled. --- Jack Higgins is the master of the espionage and political thriller, changing enemies as the times change. Sean and Billy are cold blooded killers who know what they are as they fight against the enemies of England. Their efforts prove they are not thugs but very intelligent loyal men who do what they are told by their superiors with no questions asked. The author shows his skill as he makes the reader believe the terrorists and the Russians are in bed together although with the Chechnya revolt that seems unlikely. --- Harriet Klausner

Jack Higgins does it again. With The Killing Ground, Higgins uses main character Sean Dillon to save the world from terrorists and win the war of international espionage. Not quite as exciting as some of his other books, and Dillon doesn't always play a leading role, but entertaining nonetheless. Sara is one of the best characters ever made.

If you loved book one you will like book 14..... Jack Higgins created a great character in Sean Dillon... He never lets you down. But don't worry if you haven't read any of the other books in the series, start here YOU WILL go back and read the others. I started years ago on book 3 and was hooked could not get enough. All the characters in this series are remarkable.............
