9780007385607: Judas Gate (Sean Dillon Series)

Treachery has a price, in the mesmerizing new Sean Dillon thriller from the Sunday Times-bestselling author.Helmand Province, Afghanistan: a lone convoy edges its way towards a deserted mountain village, led by US Army Rangers in Mastiff APVs. Stopping to search the area, the Rangers are hit by a massive roadside bomb, and as half the patrol lie dead or injured, the rest are ambushed with military precision. A nearby British medical team responds to the call for back-up, but all are slaughtered when their Chinook helicopter is blown up.The ambush is bad, but what's worse is that, amidst the battlefield chatter picked up by Major Giles Roper, not all the Taliban voices are Afghan - some are English, and the commander bears an Irish accent; he even names himself 'Shamrock'. Why would he commit such an atrocity, but more importantly can he be found before he masterminds another?Sean Dillon is put in charge of hunting the traitor down, with all the resources of the 'Prime Minister's private army' at his disposal. The fast and furious plot sweeps the reader from Pakistan to Algeria to London to Paris to Ireland, with many deaths along the way. The stakes are already high for Dillon and company then a familiar, deadly face makes a dramatic reappearance. This time, Dillon will not only be going to war - the war will be coming to him, and he will learn that this Judas has al-Qaeda on his side...

About the Author:

Jack Higgins was a soldier and then a teacher before becoming a full-time writer. `The Eagle Has Landed' turned him into an international bestselling author and his novels have since sold over 250 million copies and been translated into sixty languages. Many of them have also been made into successful films

From Booklist:

Sean Dillon, the former IRA soldier and missionary who now works for the British government, has another tough case on his hands. In Afghanistan, a unit of American soldiers and British medicos were ambushed. Some of the attackers were British-born Muslims, which is bad enough, but it appears their leader might be a mysterious Irishman who calls himself Shamrock. Against his better judgment, Dillon reaches out to an expert on the Irish element: Daniel Holley, an assassin who once nearly killed Dillon. This is an especially dialogue-heavy novel—much of the action is implied, or takes place off camera—perhaps because the author is interested in exploring the relationship between Dillon and Holley. Like the previous Dillon novel, The Wolf at the Door (2010), this one is slower paced, more introspective, and frankly, not quite as engaging as some of the earlier entries in the series. Fans, however, will want to see Dillon through to the end. --David Pitt
