5.0 out of 5 stars Dillon's Back
Sean Dillon is back. Dillon, Ferguson and the gang are all back in this explosive new story. The plot speeds like an express train with plenty of twists and you hate Rossi, who has entered the story on the side of the Rashid's. Higgins marries the past of Hitler and his diary with the modern setting of the Oil fields of the Middle East and once again bring good up...

I do not want to spoil this book for those who have not read it. And to express my feelings I would have to do that......

2.0 out of 5 stars Written in a rush, 13 Aug 2003
I do not want to spoil this book for those who have not read it. And to express my feelings I would have to do that......
All I would say is that it seems like Jack Higgins was up against a dealine with this book - Sean Dillon and General Ferguson are back. The story starts in 1945 and ends in modern day London and drwas you in with all the skill that Higgins has.
However, and this is the bad bit, the end of the story is wrapped up far too quickly - it's as if there was a deadline looming or Higgins just decided to tie up all the loose ends....
The story is great (4 stars) but the end takes away what could have been a fantastic book (1 star).

5.0 out of 5 stars Dillon's Back, 4 Aug 2003
By A Customer
Sean Dillon is back. Dillon, Ferguson and the gang are all back in this explosive new story. The plot speeds like an express train with plenty of twists and you hate Rossi, who has entered the story on the side of the Rashid's. Higgins marries the past of Hitler and his diary with the modern setting of the Oil fields of the Middle East and once again bring good up against evil.The characters remain strong and this is Jack Higgins, once more, at his best. All Higgins fans will read this without being able to put it down until it's completed.

2.0 out of 5 stars An author in need of fresh ideas, 16 Jan 2004
By 
Giles Allison (London, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
In my review of Jack Higgins' last novel I said that his writing had become so formulaic that you could easily skip chapters and correctly guess exactly what was in them. "Bad Company" is even worse: anyone who has read an earlier Sean Dillon could probably write this novel themselves after reading the synopsis on the dust-jacket (I assume Higgins either wrote this in his sleep, or got his dog to write it). There is no sense of character (Ferguson, Dillon, the Salters etc all talk the same now), the action happens in all the usual locations (hotel piano bars, Wapping) and the plot development is nil.
"Bad Company" is identical to the previous half dozen Dillon stories: nasty baddies have an explosive secret on a central character, nasty baddies are out to get everyone but luckily Dillon gets them first. Having killed off all the Rashids in the last 2 books, Higgins has to create a new carbon-copy adversary, who is the surprise "silent partner" of the Rashids and who happens to own the only copy of Hitler's Diaries (which contain a nasty secret about the US president).
In short, the Dillon series has run its course and the author has nothing new to say about either the characters or the genre he so expertly mastered in the past. Mr Higgins needs to develop some new ideas before he pens another novel (preferably with a new set of characters).

A book to rival most thrillers. The characters are totally believable and the plot sustains itself throughout. A good buy.

If you are a Jack Higgins fan then you do not need to be told about this book it is as good a read as any of his books. If not a fan and you enjoy action packed novels then I would urge you to give this series a try but start with Dillon's first book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read, 18 Jun 2013
A good read. I like books with a hero and a regular team. This is my second book of the Sean Dillon series. Although this story finished rather quickly I will still buy another.
