5.0 out of 5 stars A brand new reissue of a classic, 17 Sept. 2007
This review is from: JIG (Paperback)
Jig was first published in 1987 and now, twenty years later, in a new edition, it still stands as one of the really memorable thrillers of the past twenty years. Its hero, counter-terrorist agent Frank Pagan, is on the track of the man known only as 'Jig', an Irish terrorist whose distinction is that he kills only select targets - no random bombings, no innocent bystanders.
Jig is sent to America to track down millions of dollars collected by IRA sympathisers in the US only to be stolen from a hijacked ship in mid-Atlantic. And of course Frank Pagan, dogged, determined, carrying a tragedy of his own, goes in pursuit...This is a novel not only of plot, but of excellent characterization and intelligent insight into The Troubles of the time. People who were lured into reading the mindless Patriot Games would do well to read this book, which is illuminating, tense, a novel filled with unforgettable scenes, betrayals, family ties, and one man's quest to find his nemesis, whom he has come grudgingly to admire. Read it. You won't be disappointed.
