In bestseller Higgins's exciting 17th Sean Dillon thriller (after A Darker Place), Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin is behind a plot to kill Dillon and other members of the British prime minister's private intelligence army as payback for their being such a thorn in his side over the years. This novel reads like a family reunion, as characters from previous novels show up and quickly discover they have targets on their backs. Who would want to kill them and why?

Jack Higgins (Sean Dillon Series). After Higgins’ main character, Sean Dillon, figures out the puzzle, the story line moves back in time to unveil the reason for the revenge plot and the man hired to carry out the mission. As a result, the familiar characters in whom fans are most interested end up taking a backseat to the revenge story. The overall result is hit and miss.

Read his series with recurring characters Sean Dillon, Roper, etc. As always, taut drama. A real page turner that kept me on the edge of my seat waiting for what happened next. Personally I really liked this book, like many of the other Jack Higgins' novels. The plot was quite in depth and the back stories help the flow and my understanding of the novel. The story of Daniel Holley's drastic shift to the darker side himself and his struggles throughout life and into the present give the novel a darker, more intense tone. Perhaps the only reason that I picked up The Wolf at the Door was the glimmer of energy I saw in last year’s A Darker Place. Higgins seems revitalized.

In the first nine pages of The Wolf At The Door the quick action sets the stage and pace for the story that follows. and back, and well, back again. Over the years I think I've read close to 40 of Jack Higgins/Harry Patterson's books and have been amazed at this gifted storyteller's writing prowess.

On Long Island, a trusted operative for the President nudges his boat up to a pier, when a man materializes out of the rain and shoots him. In London, General Charles Ferguson, adviser to the Prime Minister, approaches his car on a side street, when there is a flash, and the car explodes. In New York, a former British soldier, who is also a bit more than that, takes a short walk in Central Park to stretch his legs, when a man comes up fast behind him, a pistol in his hand. And that is only the beginning. Someone is targeting the members of the elite intelligence unit known as “the Prime Minister’s private army” and all those who work with them, and whoever is doing it has a lot of resources at his command. Sean Dillon has an idea of who it may be, an old nemesis who has clearly gotten tired of their interference in his schemes. But proving it is going to be a difficult task. And surviving it the hardest task of all. . . .

In New York and in London several members, allies and friends of Brigadier General Charles Ferguson's private intelligence army (as well as Ferguson himself), were targets of planned assassinations, all of which, for one reason or another, went wrong. However, there is a clue found on several of the would-be killers as to who may be behind them. But, is it really?

This tale is written differently than previous in how it is presented. It is broken down into (roughly) quarters, followed by the End Game. The first quarter of the story details the attacks in New York and London and what follows as former Provisional IRA enforcer and now British intelligence officer Sean Dillon and the rest of Ferguson's team assemble afterwards, gather their initial facts, shuttle their friends to safety, and ready themselves to set plans into motion. The next section is some back story set in Moscow where Prime Minister Vladimir Putin enlists GRU Colonel Josef Lermov as the man to create and carry out his bold vision. Next, the back story on a PIRA enforcer/underworld businessman, Daniel Holley, and his connection to Lermov, and his development of the multi-pronged attack. The final quarter then chronicles the plan being set into motion with Holley in London working with a long-idle but quite-ready-for-duty IRA cell. The End Game brings about the conclusion of the foiled assassination attempts and what some of the players futures may hold in store for them, in England, Russia and America.

The subplots add to the tale, while the back stories reveal to the reader the whys and wherefores and, thus, keep one reading. Yes, some situations and solutions may be a bit unrealistic but that is found in almost all works in the genre. "The Wolf at the Door" is the 17th installment featuring Dillon, though he and the team play a more limited role in this one, and should be read for the pure escape that it provides. It is a fairly quick read, lots of dialogue between characters, good bits of action (though mostly in the first and last quarters) with some comedy relief thrown in at various times for good measure.

I liked the story okay, but I didn't like the way the book was put together. It was as if the writer had written it in two sections; starting with the ending and then writing the beginning. This would have been fine if he hadn't been too lazy to blend the two sections together in a coherent manner. He starts with the ending, then at 30% continues with the beginning. The book didn't make any sense to me at first and I thought of dumping it. Glad I didn't, but the story was made difficult when it needn't have been.

This story is a culmination of all of the characters associated with Sean Dillon,General Ferguson and all of their associates. The majority of the stories revolve around England, Ireland,Russia and the USA. If you have ever been to England you will begin to relive your past experiences there. Jack Higgins, the author, has a unique way of bringing and wrapping his novel around you as you read his story. The cold rainy nights in England and it's surrounding countryside come flashing back from the past to totally embrace you within the novel. He mentions a pub, the Darkman, which is in London (close to Chelsea) off the Thames river, that is so reminiscent of the area that you can visualize the characters and almost taste the fog and Rye Whisky. Meanwhile as he introduces the good and bad guys he takes you to an old Irish Church with all the history involved with the IRA and its struggle with the British Government. I was in Britain when a bomb went off about one block from where I was walking. This novel resets my mind to the past and all of the political aspects of the period. This is only one of many plots that evolve which take you to Washington, D.C., Moscow, etc. Fasten your seat belt as this is an interesting and viable novel. Good reading!.

Very deceiving. The publisher advertises this book as a Sean Dillon book. However, this favorite character makes only a couple of very brief appearances in the entire book. Moreover, there is a major redundancy in the book that gives you the ending long before the book ends. Lacks plot consistency, action, and drama. My advice: Don't read it.

I did not like the way the author presented the material. The characters came to fast in the beginning and were poorly developed on purpose. the protagonist was not Sean Dillon . The plot was not believable; the paid assassins all failed . How could they be so stupid? To top it off, there was no ending . I probably should've rated it at two .

I've been a Jack Higgins fan for years and have read every one of his books. I have always enjoyed the way he tells a story, but truthfully, the last few years have seen some mediocre efforts. The storylines were fairly predictable, and the characters sounded very dated. In other words, I hate to say it, but the books had gotten boring.

But not this one. I couldn't put it down. It was well thought out, and I liked the way the new characters were added to the mix. Most of the story didn't include the same old characters, but some new ones. The new guy, Daniel, is potentially a good character for the future. I can see him becoming one of Ferguson's guys shortly.

That said, I think that some of Higgin's writing is forced. I find the term "switch off" to be awkward. I realize that it's a British phrase, but he was having an American say it. We don't use that phrase. We say "turn off". Small detail, but when combined with the constant drinking that every character seems to need to do at all times of the day, and you see what I mean.

I enjoyed it, and give it 4 stars. I look forward to the next one!
