Jack Higgins' The Judas Gate
The latest installation of Major General Ferguson and his "Prime Minster's Private Army" which has increased to include two Irish Provos, Sean Dillon and Daniel Holley, and British army Major Harry Miller and Major Giles Roper fighting against British Muslims who have joined the Taliban in the American war in Afghanistan which eventually pitch them against Al-Queda.
I like Jack Higgins' writing because it is often fast paced and involves heroes and heroines that are tough and resourceful. In one sense, it is like the Western stories where the gunfight solves most of the problems. Higgins also writes like "Papa" Hemingway which is delightful.
