Sean Higgins and UK team save US President and then search for Russian assassin and his team. Less Northern Ireland and more US-related activity. ( )

Higgins takes us off on a new course ... the Russians. A fair amount of suspense has returned to the tales. Alas with both the General and the Superintendent out of action, it's to imagine where we head from here. Someway or another, there always seems to be a plentiful supply of Irish to fill out the lesser or transitory roles but with few of them rising to the level of the main characters. I'm looking forward to where we go from here. ( )

Was introduced to Sean Dillion in this series and found the read to be enjoyable and an easy read. Again, not one of those books that intrigue you as you try to figure out the plot/motive/etc., instead it is plainly laid out path, don't want to say predictable but if you've read enough of these type books iy can seem to be.

Stories of intrigue are usually intriguing, not so with Dark Justice!

Commencing with a plot to assassinate the US President one has an immediate flashback to a previous novel with a remarkably similar plot development, only this time rather than the perpetrator being an IRA soldier hired by rich industrialist with Islamic fundamentalist views it is a Islamic fundamentalist backed by a rich industrialist.

Naturally the attempt is thwarted by Ferguson/Dillon/Blake&Co at which point they commence hunting down the backer. Once again Dillon visits an old lady, kisses her on the forehead and the next day she's dead of an "accident", quite amazing that the old ladies he kisses on the forehead keep drowning accidentally in the Thames.

Enter the IRA a bit of run around and then Dillon gets his man and the story ends. At which point we're apparently meant to have forgotten about the Islamic fundamentalist training camps which trained the aforementioned assassin which are never actually dealt with in any manner.

Overall, it fills in time but really is a rather unimpressive work filled with Déjà vu plot developments. ( )

Jack Higgins is "the dean of intrigue novelists," wrote the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about his last novel, Bad Company. "He has no equal," In the words of the Associated Press, "When it comes to thriller writers, one name stands well above the crowd--Jack Higgins." It is night in Manhattan. The President of the United States is scheduled to have dinner with an old friends, but in the building across the street, a man has disabled the security and stands at a window, a rifle in his hand. Fortunately, his attempt is not successful--but this is only the beginning. Someone is recruiting a shadowy network of agents with the intention of creating terror. Their range is broad, their identities masked, their methods subtle. White House operative Blake Johnson and his counterpart in British intelligence, Sean Dillon, set out to trace the source of the havoc, but behind the first man they find another, and behind the second another still. And that last man is not pleased by the interference. Soon he will target them all: Johnson, Dillon, Dillon's Colleagues. And one of them will fall. Filled with all the dark suspense and sudden action for which Higgins has become famous, and drive by characters of complexity and passion, Dark Justice shows the master at the peak of his powers.
