Touch the Devil book. Published September 1st 1983 by Signet (first published February 1st 1982). Our introduction to the prolific Jack Higgins was his early (1969) thriller "A Fine Night for Dying". His ideology is money. 0451124685 (ISBN13: 9780451124685). That novel, while mildly entertaining, was short and pretty tame by modern standards. With "Devil" we moved ahead several years to a Higgins' work written in 1982 and set in roughly that same time frame.

Jack Higgins Touch the Devil. The barman leaned on the zinc-topped counter reading a newspaper.

Rain threatened, the clouds over the jungle in the far distance heavy with it, and thunder rumbled on the distant horizon. Inside the Medevac, Anne-Marie Audin sat in a corner, eyes closed, her back. supported by a case of medical supplies. She was a small, olive-skinned girl, with black hair razor-cut close to the skull, a concession to the living conditions of the Vietnam war front.

This is a tough book to get into. I spent half of the book trying to figure out who was who, and the last half of the book trying to make myself care enough to pick it up and read to finish the book. It deals with mostly terrorists fighting each other with one having a goal at the end of it all to assassinate England's Prime Minister. Just not one of his better books in my opinion.

I loved "The Eagle has landed" & loved to hate Liam Devlin. He is a good bad guy in all three of the series books. I just wished Mr. Higgins hadn't waited so long to bring Liam back. He has become one of my favorite characters being both bad & good. Wish there was more in-between the three books. Since there is such a long time span between them. Liam starts out as a young man & by the 3rd book he is an old man.
Still would recommend these two "Touch The Devil" & "Confessional"

Yet another thriller penned by Higgins. The Liam Devlin franchise continues to be a compelling read for those of us who enjoy Adventure Thrillers. The action and plot synchronize smoothly with the buildups to each mini-climax serving a satisfying scenario. Very entertaining read!

I enjoyed the book - but the jump in time from Book 1 to Book 2 seemed a bit of a stretch for me. But it was good enough that I bought and read the 3rd book in the series and enjoyed it also.

Liam Devlin, Martin Brosnan, and Frank Barry are ruthless, highly trained killers. All three are veterans of the IRA, but their paths have diverged widely by 1979. Devlin, now sixty-one years of age and still a believer in the cause of a united Irish nation, surfaces from time to time on university campuses in Ireland and the United States, where he is an occasional professor of English literature. Brosnan, convicted four years earlier in France in a near-successful attempt to assassinate Charles de Gaulle, has been confined to a cell on Belle Isle in the Mediterranean, the successor to the notorious Devil's Island. For his part, Barry has turned mercenary. His current employer is the KGB.

The IRA was yesterday's ISIS

If you're under the age of fifty or so, you may be unaware that, in the eyes of the British, the IRA in the 1960s and 70s was regarded with as much fear and disgust as ISIS is today. Earlier in 1979, an IRA bomb had killed Lord Mountbatten, uncle of Prince Phillip, commander of Allied Forces in Southeast Asia in World War II, and the last Viceroy of India. If the IRA had assassinated the Queen, it's unlikely that the furor would have been much greater. This is the "army" from which Devlin, Brosnan, and Barry have all emerged into their divergent careers. Now, when Barry murders the brilliant MI5 agent sent to end his life, Devlin and Brosnan are recruited to take out Barry -- an assignment they cherish because of long-standing rivalry.

Enter the KGB and the Corsican mob

MI5 (called DI5 in the novel) approaches Devlin with a seemingly impossible challenge: to persuade Brosnan that MI5 can arrange for him to leave Belle Isle and join Devlin in pursuit of Barry. However, Brosnan isn't easy to convince. Further compounding the problem, his cellmate is the aging former head of the Union Corse, the Corsican mob, and the two have grown close. Meanwhile, Barry has taken on a high-priority assignment for the KGB: to hijack a truck in England carrying an advanced weapon coveted by the USSR and the USA. To add glamour and love interest, a beautiful and courageous young French photojournalist gets involved as well as all sides come together in a spectacular series of collisions.

It's all a glorious mess, suspenseful and entertaining all the way.
