Clive Cussler, hang your head in shame. You've been overtaken.
on 6 November 2014
Sheer brilliance. Great plot, as is the writing. Believable hero in Sean Dillon. Jack Higgins manages, with a supreme skill, to weave the Irish "Troubles", and the English government side of things into a pattern that you can understand and follow, although the plot only just involves them both a little in most cases. Or so you might think. These books are not the sort that give you a headache trying to piece it all together. Easy to follow, and hard to put down, they are great reading. I've read one of the " Dillon " series in under two days, unable to put the book down. There are many books in the series involving Sean Dillon, former IRA hitman, bomber and general nuisance to all and sundry. Despite his early doings, I've come to respect the man, and thanks to Higgins writing, have been able to understand the Irish situation in the 80's a lot better. And he has a way of disposing of the opposition that I wish I could copy.! If you are seriously into finding a different author, you've come to the right place. Buy and enjoy. Trust me.
