Book Description

4 Nov 2014
A bartender and nightclub singer are thrown into the midst of a treacherous Nazi plot in war-torn Lisbon As the Nazi war machine prepares to invade England, Hitler plots to kidnap the Duke and Duchess of Windsor while they travel in Portugal, and install them as puppet monarchs under the thumb of his fascist regime. But when an American bartender and a young Jewish nightclub singer catch wind of the scheme, they set out to derail the Nazi conspiracy. As Hitler's henchmen close in, their thrilling rescue mission-and the surprising help it receives-will have the power to turn the tide of the Nazi progress toward European domination. "Jack Higgins is the master." -Tom Clancy Jack Higgins is the New York Times bestselling author of more than sixty thrillers that have sold over 250 million copies worldwide, including The Eagle Has Landed and The Wolf at the Door. Before beginning his writing career, Higgins served in the British Army along the East German border. He lives in the Channel Islands.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the eagle has landed... 23 Jan 2011
By Bridgey
Format:Paperback
Anyone familiar with Jack Higgins will be aware of his best selling book The Eagle has Landed. In my opinion this book more than equals it.

The scene is set in the second world war with the german army poised to invade Britain. The Duke & Duchess of Windsor are in Lisbon. The British are desperate to send them off to the Bahamas (out of sight, out of mind) and the Germans are convinced that they would jump at the chance to defect to them, whereby they would place the Duke on the throne after the invasion. A plan by the Germans is put in place in order to ensure the Duke sees things their way, and if not, then a kidnapping is in order.....

Walter Schellenberg is put in charge of the case but doesn't really see things the way Himmler would like, and proves to be an almost anti hero. As usual, Higgins has created various characters to help the script flow nicely along with the pages flying by.

Expect killing, torturing, double agents, & beautiful girls mixed with real life events. As in the style of many of his works there is a prologue and epilogue that tidys up events in only the way Higgins can.

An excellent read and another book to add to my collection of favourites :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good fun 12 Sep 2007
Format:Paperback
Not as good as some of the author's other WWII stories but still an easy light fun read. It is based around the idea that
the Germans planned to kidnap the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, while they were staying in Portugal.

Joe Jackson, an American runs the best bar in Lisbon, that everyone goes to. He has 'dark, wavy, hair, a pale face.
and a slight, ironic quirk that seemed to permantly lift the corner of his mouth'. 'Who fought with the International Brigade in Spain'. Remind you of anyone ?

He rescues Hannah Winter, from the Gestapo. She has a secret to reveal. Joe finds himself rallying to the right cause.

Walter Schellenberg, the SS intellgence officer in charge of the operation comes across as almost an anti-hero. His parting words being 'Am I the only sane man in a world gone mad'.
