This was my very first Higgins book and I was very interested in what i've read. I would have never picked up a book like this being the fact that I don't know much about the IRA and things along that line. This book has definetly opened up my mind and has got me wanting to read more of Higgins' work. The only problem I had with the book was the ending. The main bad guy died a little too easy to me. His seath should have been very gruesome and very painful. I didn't really agree with that part. Other than that, I look forward to my next Higgins tale...

Lady Helen Lang is an American-born widow of a wealthy English aristocrat who, late in her life, sets herself the task of assassinating members of an Irish Republican Army (IRA) splinter group called the Sons of Erin. Her only son Peter, a soldier in the Special Air Service, had been brutally killed by the group a few years earlier. The story is set in 1999 during peace talks between the British government and the mainstream components of the IRA. She runs afoul of two secret government organizations, The Basement, which reports directly to the President of the United States, and another unnamed organization led by a character referred to as “The Brigadier”, a recurring character in Higgins’ novels. So far as I could tell, there was no relationship to the Doctor Who character known by that name, but I imagined Nicholas Courtney while reading the book. I found the book very entertaining, but second rate.

Jack Higgins is one powerful writer, always "on the edge of your chair" thriller.

I¿ve read few Jack Higgins books, and this was my first. That said, I didn¿t know any of the recurring characters or their stories, yet it didn¿t make a difference. The story makes perfect sense without foreknowledge of the characters, and this was still a great book. In the opening pages, an assassin waits patiently for a Senator to arrive at his residence. Against the backdrop of a light rain, two men pull a woman into an alley with the intent to rape her. The assassin comes to her aid, and we find that the assassin is an old woman, a kindly old grandmother! From this moment on, my interest was peaked. I had to find out who this woman was, how she entered her profession, etc. I was not disappointed. 'The White House Connection' is a spy thriller true to its purpose, perfect for a rainy day or an extended plane ride. If you like Jack Higgins, you¿ll definitely love this novel. And if you¿ve never read his work, this is a great starting point. For a quick reality escape, read this book! >>>> Britt Gillette, Author of 'Conquest of Paradise'

As a fanatic Jack reader (this was title number 23)I thought I could not be surprised much, especially after the announcement that the crack-team of the presidents daughter would be there again.Well I was wrong; what I expected was there, but the smooth plot & the nice interconnection between characters and their history, gave more then expected. It was thrilling, it was nice, the atmosphere was right and above all, it gave back the old 'Jack-feeling' in a new way.

This book is exciting when you think something will happen something else does and little pop-ups excite you.

This is my first read of Higgins, and if this is typical of his work, I don't get it. Granted, he keeps the pages turning, but with a plot so implausible that it becomes, by book's end, a joke. Every time the good guys need a key piece of information, they get it -- just in time. Everytime a character needs to be at a certain place at a certain time to advance the action, he/she miraculously appears. Against all odds, the principals, including a sloppily guarded president of the U.S., all show up at the same dinner party on Long Island. Rarely in literature have I seen so many people inevitably turn up at just the right place at just the right time. And all of them one-dimensional characters speaking in comic book dialogue. Open to almost any page, read a few lines of dialogue and ask yourself: Who in the world talks like this? My question is not how Sean Dillon and Blake Johnson manage to pull this off. My question is: How does this tripe get published?

It was kind of boring in the beginning part of the novel, which were telling about the 'Sons of Erin' stuff. But the story was very good as I got on reading it. I really would recommend this novel to others who especially enjoys Sean Dillon.
