Format: Hardcover
This was my first Jack Higgins novel and also the first 'grown up' book I read in my early teens. I liked the characters, Higgins etches them out very well. His economy of words and quick set up of the scene is something I have always admired. The action is taut and suspenseful and the ending is satisfying. The Falklands war as the backdrop, he crafts a good thriller with one or two cliched villans but a hero I really liked - Tony Villers. It's just sad this character hasn't been used in Higgins' other books. Nevertheless a good read.

Format: Paperback
Exocets ... symbol of success in technological advancement in
modern warfare ... and an utter failure in human factor. These
missiles were the only wild card the Argentitians had to throw
in the face of the British, and they were running short.
Hence, when the British Intel received a tip-off of Argentitians
trying to purchase Exocets in France, they activated their best
woman, Gabrielle Legrand, on the case to counter the Argentician
ace pilot Montera who was despatched to verify the missiles.
Against the background of the intrigue, the Soviets were playing
their own game, awaiting to score a coup of their own and leave eggs on everyone elses' faces.

this book was not as good as his other works. I did like the ending. This is not a superb work, but an above average work.

Exocet was a very interesting book. The way every one of different spy groups tries to outwit the other to get the best outcome. The Argentinean's were in the worst position of all, because they had no war experience, no spy's and depended on other nations to help them. The other nations were supporting them, to take advantage of the spoils of war. The ending was very good.

A bit melodramatic compared to Higgins other novels, and somewhat stretching the possible. But, for a long flight, it passed the time.

As always Jack Higgins out did himself. I really enjoyed reading this and because I remember those times it made it even more interesting. I recommend this highly.
