The Judas Gate (Sean Dillon, #18) A Disturbing Tape Has Made Its Way To British Intelligence It Contains Battlefield Chatter From An Ambush In Afghanistan, In Which 12 U.S Army Rangers And A British Medical Team Died Most Of The Taliban Voices Are Afghan, But The Voice Of The Commander Bears An Irish Accent Sean Dillon Is Put In Charge Of Hunting The Traitor Down. This was my first Jack Higgins and it might be my last To be fair this is book 18 in the series and number 18 is not the right end to start a series But for all that I m hard pressed to say anything good about this book The plot left a lot to be desired The characters were nothan cardboard cut outs The pace was like a wet afternoon When the end came my first reaction was, thank God that s over.I have friends that tell me the earlier books are good so I might give Mr Higgins the bene This was my first Jack Higgins and it might be my last To be fair this is book 18 in the series and number 18 is not the right end to start a series But for all that I m hard pressed to say anything good about this book The pl
Judas Gate, by Jack Higgins, is one of the dullest, so called action books I have read What began as an intriguing, action filled series staring Sean Dillon has deteriorated into littlethan a tale of tedious plotting, endless talking, and almost constant drinking among characters who have lost their individuality I wonder how the special unit headed by Ferguson can get anything right with all they drinking t
What can I say about The Judas Gate Large stretches of boredom, interrupted by moments of hmmm, time to open my eyes now Dillon returns, with a major new character Daniel Holley who seems to have no real reason for existing I usually enjoy Jack Higgins books for treadmill reading, but this one was a few steps below his usual work I almost wondered if it was written by a ghostwriter or co author a
Not sure how this got on my audio menu, but it s a stiff upper lip full of DNF. Higgins remains at the top of his form in this latest saga of Sean Dillon, General Ferguson and company as they ferret out the latest of their public enemies when they discover an Irishman is apparently aiding and abetting the enemy in Afghanistan With only a recording of the voice as a British team is all but destroyed, Dillon and team set out to locate and eliminate this threat to their country But the enemy has nothing left to lose and attacks from the shadows of anonymity Twice various me Higgins remains at the top of his form in this latest saga of Sean Dillon, General Ferguson and company as they ferret out the latest of their public enemies when they discover an Irishman is apparently aiding and abetting the enemy in Afghanistan With only a recording of the voice as a British team is all but destroyed, Dillon and team set out to locate and eliminate this threat to their country But the enemy has nothing left to lose and attacks from the shadows of anonymity
The theme seemed very cliched to me The story is fast and lot of action happening here, but somehow, it lacked the engaging quality of a good thriller It might have been better An okey dokey book Can be easily given a miss. Jack Higgins was my favourite author as a teenager And then I revisited him with Judas Gate when I was in my 30sand found that he has not aged well.To start off, the book is clearly, obviously ghostwritten, and lazily ghostwritten at that There seems to have not been a single drop of passion injected into the project at any stage, and it comes off exactly as it is a sleazy money grabbing exercise.The idea of Dillon and Ferguson being super deadly secret agents at this stage is laughable Jack Higgins was my favourite author as a teenager And then I revisited him with Judas Gate when I was in my 30sand found that he has not aged well.To start off, the book is clearly, obviously ghostwritten, and lazily ghostwritten at that There seems to have not been a single drop of passion injected into the project at any stage, and it comes off exactly as it is a sleazy money grabbing exercise.The idea of Dillon and Ferguson being super deadly secret agents at this stage is laughable Dillon must be pushing 70, and Ferguson must be close to 90 Of course, since then, there have been another four Sean Dillon novels, go figure Any author with a modicum of respect for their own creations would have retired or killed off Dillon and Ferguson by now, but not Jack Higgins.Every character in the novel is ridiculous They spend so much time guzzling whiskey, no matter whether they re fundamentalist Muslims or major political leaders, that they all must ha
I like Jack Higgins, his characters, and his stories I have read his efforts since I was a young reader at which point the content was probably inappropriate for me I ve followed Dillon from his days as an IRA villain to his current role as wry anti hero That preamble out of the way, I didn t love this one but didn t hate it either I likely suspend my disbelief, or at the very least my critical eye, when I read Higgins and Cussler, and Clancy, and, well, you get the idea So if you re lo I like Jack Higgins, his characters, and his stories I have read his efforts since I was a young reader at which point the content was probably inappropriate for me I ve followed Dillon from his days as an IRA villain to his current role as wry anti hero That preamble out of the way, I didn t love this one but didn t hate it either I likely suspend my disbelief, or at th
Another good book in the Sean Dillon series I thoroughly enjoyed it Lots of twists and turns and excitement. This book had many highs and lows Dragged on a lot, but the story wasExciting It could have been told in a lot less pages.
