Excluding The Eagle Has Landed, which is in a class by itself, this is the best I've read from Higgins. The story is tightly woven. The usual characters play their parts but it is Lady Helen who steals the show. From a moral standpoint, it is difficult, if not impossible, to justify her actions. Still, it is also true the law could not lay a hand on her. The work she did was nothing but revenge but even in that she took out folks who were no credit to the human race. Vigilantism is a fact in human relations. It doesn't always end in death and very often it contributes to the common good. Hence, no judgement of Lady Helen but a great deal of enjoyment in this Higgins book. ( )

Someone is killing members of splinter group, Sons of Erin. Normally not a major concern but this could lead to the fall of two governments and the derailing of the Irish peace process. Sean Dillon and Blake Johnson join forces to stop the assassin.

Genre: [Thriller](/thriller/)

This book is the 7th in the Sean Dillon series and I can say having read the Liam Devlin books and all of the prior Sean Dillon books that the Irish Rogue drama is starting to get stale.

The story line in this arc at least has evolved to include UK-USA coorporation, more so than the last, however this small change was not enough to keep it from feeling stale, it didn't give it the injection of freshness and excitement that the series now sorely needs.

Overall I actually found it a little too much like the prior books without enough variation to make you over look the similar plot path. I'm hopeful that the next book moves on from the Irish Troubles or at least has a fresh take on things. ( )

This turned out to be among my favorite Jack Higgins novels. The introduction of Lady Helen added an entertaining dimension which immediately drew me into the story. The primary characters are as old friends now and the bad guy is pretty much a cardboard cutout, but whatever was lost in that respect was balanced out by Lady Helen.
I felt Lady Helen too easily dispatched the bad guys, but the details didn't matter as the main story wasn't so much about the guys she killed as the efforts to unmask the bad guy.
Overall, this was Higgins at his best. ( )

Manhattan, with an east wind driving rain mixed with a little sleet along Park Avenue, was as bleak and uninviting as most great cities after midnight, especially in March.
