The Liam Devlin Novels: The Eagle Has Landed, Touch the Devil, and Confessional Kindle Edition
In The Eagle Has Landed, the inspiration for the film starring Donald Sutherland, an audacious Nazi plan to kidnap Winston Churchill threatens to tip the scales of World War II. In November 1943, an elite team of Nazi paratroopers descends on British soil with a diabolical goal: Abduct Winston Churchill and cripple the Allied war effort. The mission, ordered by Hitler himself and planned by Heinrich Himmler, is led by ace agent Kurt Steiner and aided on the ground by IRA gunman Liam Devlin.
As the deadly duo executes Hitler’s harrowing plot, only the quiet town of Studley Constable stands in their way. Its residents, including a beautiful widow, are the lone souls aware of the impending Nazi plan, and they must become the most unlikely of heroes as the fate of the war hangs in the balance.
In Touch the Devil, in the shadow of the Cold War, two rugged IRA veterans must crush a ruthless mercenary before his deadly scheme can bring Europe to its knees. Terrorist-for-hire Frank Barry has been wreaking havoc in Germany and France with backing from the KGB. But his next mission might be his deadliest: Barry plans to steal a state-of-the-art missile and sell it to the highest bidder.
Only Barry’s longtime rivals, retired IRA gunman Liam Devlin and his ally Martin Brosnan, can prevent the missile from falling into the wrong hands. But first, Devlin must stage a thrilling jailbreak to free Brosnan before the men set off on a gripping race against the clock to eliminate Barry and end his reign of terror.
In Confessional, a rogue terrorist in Northern Ireland prepares for his final deadly strike. Trained by the KGB, the assassin known as Cuchulain has cut a path of violence throughout the region for over two decades, leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. Now he has set his audacious sights on his highest profile target yet: the pope.
Desperate to stop the terrorist, British Intelligence enlists an enemy Irish gunman, Liam Devlin, to accomplish what they never could. He must put an end to Cuchulain, once and for all.
Jack Higgins is, without a doubt, “the master” (Tom Clancy) of well-crafted World War II espionage thrillers. These three novels featuring Liam Devlin are required reading for lovers of intrigue, action, suspense, and adventure.

And while I was intrigued by the story, the glorification of war and warriors like Liam Devlin and Steiner is an anachronism - and I think there would be many modern readers who might find this offensive, knowing as we do the true horror of war.
On the other hand, "Confessional" ticked all the boxes in terms of plot, character and pace and I read it in one sitting on a long plane trip. The profile of the assassin priest is chilling in the light of recent assassination attempts and terrorism events around the world. The purchase is worth it for this novel alone -though I suggest reading "The Eagle Has Landed" first to get some background on Liam Devlin.

What a brilliant German idea. Abduct or kill the Prime Minister. Unbelievable ? Well Jack Higgins weaves a most absorbing tale around the idea. So absorbing. All the characters spring to life. A real page turner with the tension increasing almost page by page. Loved it ! ! ! !
Touch The Devil.
From World War 2, in The Eagle Has Landed, we move forward in time to the cold war, and a ruthless mercenary plots to steal a German missile, with the help of the KGB. Needless too say Devlin and Brosnan try their hardest to defeat him. Lots of travel, plenty of bodies, even a French prison island escape and assassination plot on a very famous person. Loved it ! ! ! !
Wow. What an idea, to kill the Pope. Beautifully written, with lots of detailed information and travel. Good characterisations. A splendidly tense buildup to the finale. Loved it ! ! ! !
Patterson brings the colourful believable characters to life and keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout as you wonder where the story is going next
Slow to get into them but fast not wanting to leave. Lots of built up with the endings coming quick
