Book Description

24 Sep 2007
Only four men in the whole of the US could have known when the shipment of ten millions dollars to the IRA was scheduled. One of those four must be responsible for the slaughter of the couriers and hijacking of the funds. Only one man is trusted by the terrorists to go after the money. Their best assassin; the man they call Jig - deft at killing, nimble at eluding capture. But hot on his trail is Frank Pagan, British counter-terrorist agent, who will hunt his prey to the ends of the earth. The perfect match for a dance to the death...

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the benchmark thriller of the 80s and 90s 11 Nov 2001
I re-read this the other day and I still feel what I felt at the time, that this was the finest thriller published in a ten year span between 1986-1996, which includes a lot of good books. Why this novel never got filmed when the childish Patriot Games did, is beyond me. JIG is so rich in character and plot, and so well-written, it's incredible that it has been overlooked by Hollywood. We've had so many crummy movies made about the IRA - and yet the best thriller on the subject, JIG, slipped through the net. Do yourself a favor and read this beauty again...

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional thriller 4 Dec 2005
A shipment of money, raised in the USA and destined for the IRA, is hijacked by person or persons unknown. The IRA is obviously not going to be happy with this - their best man, Jig, is dispatched to find out what went wrong, retrieve the money, and mete out retribution. He has a contact in the States, but the Brits are sending a man after him, and it looks like another player has headed across the Atlantic as well.
"Jig" is a first-rate thriller, one of the best ever to use the conflict in Northern Ireland as its driving force, and far superior to the bulk of better publicised (and hyped-up) thrillers published since the 1980's. Although the situation in Ireland has undergone significant changes since the writing of "Jig", it remains a compulsive read. Campbell Armstrong writes a fast paced novel in which he builds a number of convincing characters and explores the dynamics of their interaction in sophisticated fashion. It's a timeless classic. This is an intelligent, seriously well-written page turner of a book from a highly skilled author. An exciting, highly enjoyable thriller.
