A rousing, globe-trotting adventure--the kind of novel in which the hero is a world-weary war vet named Jack Savage and the love interest is a scathing nineteen-year-old beauty with a penchant for provocative clothing. That being said, this isn't nearly as lowbrow as one might suspect. NIGHT JUDGEMENT AT SINOS may be poorly titled and paced like a rocket, but it's also an incredibly intelligent little book. I can't recall ever having so much fun reading Higgins. Maybe it's all the diving...I'm a ...more

Jack Higgins proves himself once again a grand master of the romantic adventure story. "Night Judgement at Sinos" is clearly an homage to Bogart/Bacall pairings, especially "To Have and To Have Not" - spiced up with a bit of "Guns of Navarone." It's an action-packed and heady brew and by the time Higgins has stirred it all up, it becomes his own brand of mano-a-mano malice and the reader is in for one hell of a ride.

The story takes place in 1970 in the Middle East, starting in Egypt then sprawli
A fast moving adventure featuring a former Irish commando in World War 2 turned salvage diver off the Egyptian coast.

I was disappointed with Night Judgement at Sinos. I have read several other Jack Higgins novels and they were all enjoyable, fast-paced adventures. This one drags in too many spots. The first hundred or so pages (out og 289) are mostly character exposition with a few quick adventure-ish interludes. In fact we don't even find out what the mission on Sinos is until around page 120, and then it doesn't really start moving for another 70 or so pages. When the time eventually arrives for the mission, ...more

Egypt, Greek islands; writing pretty good, dialogue good, plot not bad. I give it a good rating for escapism

Kind of a mix of Dirk Pitt and Casablanca.
Period piece involving an expatriot salvage expert becoming involved in the early post-war Arab-Israeli disputes and post-war Greek Civil War Cold War issues in Mediterranean Sea region...kind of remeniscent of an Alistair MacLean that was so much a part of my 50s/60s childhood reading
An older Jack Higgins, a story of a man who has his own moral code and how he deals with the hand fate has dealt him. He learns that you must be true to yourself and finally understands his father's choice of death.
Good Higgins book - great plot.
