5.0 out of 5 stars When 'The Legend' lived up to his sales tag., 23 April 2009
This review is from: Night of the Fox (Classic Jack Higgins Collection) (Mass Market Paperback)
Each new Jack Higgins novel is published with 'The Legend' above his name and as he celebrates 50 years as a published author one has to give him credit for his longevity as a popular writer of thrillers.

' Night of the Fox' was written during his best period as a writer which in my opinion started in 1975 with 'The Eagle Has Landed' and stretched to 1990's 'Cold Harbour'.
Published in 1985 'Night of the Fox' tells the story of a daring rescue mission to get a wounded US Colonel off the German occupied island of Jersey before he can reveal the D Day landing points. Higgins writes at a furious pace and the novel is full of twists and turns and well developed characters who are not always who they first appear to be. Higgins who himself lives on Jersey paints a vivid picture of the island under occupation.
This is good clean 'old school' action and adventure which Higgins used to write extremely well before he ran out of ideas for new stories and began the 'Dillon' series. If only he had kept writing more WW2 novels such as this......
