General Charles Ferguson, Commander of the British Prime Minister's private hit squad and adviser to the new president of the United States, has been given a disturbing recording from Afghanistan, on which the murders of American Army Rangers and a British medical team are recorded. About half of the Taliban force voices on the tape are British. One authoritative voice is Irish; code name: Shamrock.

Shocked that one of their own could be responsible for a massacre, General Ferguson tasks Sean Dillon with hunting the traitor. But even as Dillon goes to war, the war is coming to him...

Ugh! First book I've just not bothered to finish reading in over 20 years. Agree with every negative comment below. The tagline on the back cover, "He has no equal" might be true. But it's not necessarily a good thing with this effort.

Nitetrain and I seem to read a lot of the same books. I was very disappointment in this lackluster effort by Higgins. I used to so enjoy Sean Dillon devilry but that has possibly ended here. Higgins has run out of ideas or at least how to present them.

The Judas Gate ---- by Jack Higgins / Harry Patterson c - 2010 ---- Very good writing ---- I enjoyed this story even with the confusion in the first chapters. ---- Where one of the main secoundary characters was shot and killed in one of the previous Novels: He returns from the dead! ---- As there was communication between him and other foes. Which do not match up. (with anything) ---- So the Timeline in the early chapters (of this novel) is distorted: in wondering where and when the conversation happend. (Ah well! Opps) ---- Enjoy! ---- RichardPaul

Kind of a strange read. Very unbelievable in the operations aspect.

Although the plot is fairly interesting, it is not very believable. The characters are rather shallow; there is not much depth to this book.
It may be a good read to kill time on a plane.

Not one of Higgins best efforts ran on and really didn't keep you turning the page. Still as it has been a while since the last in the series worth the read but you will not get "blown away" by this one.

After killing off one of his major characters several books ago, Higgins' work had been really wandering, with a number of the books seeming to cast the main character completely aside for large parts of the narrative. It seemed like Higgins was coasting.

He's returned somewhat to form with this book, putting Dillon front and center where he belongs, and featuring a compelling, somewhat deranged villain in a tale of betrayal and secrets stretching from Afghanistan and Pakistan to Algeria, London, and Northern Ireland.
