Format: 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......

Not read a Higgins novel for years and now recall what I have been missing.
Superbly told story set in Jersey towards the end of the war.
A secret mission to rescue an American colleague who finds himself stuck on the Island in possession of the D Day landing sites. The Germans hot on his tail with a dawning realisation of what they have within their grasp.
The novel jogs along superbly none of the more modern over described situations and settings you get these days padding books out needlessly. It just gets on with it.
If you have not read Higgins for a while I heartily recommend this book as a reintroduction.
If you are a Higgins first timer then this is a good place to start.

Good story with nice descriptions of Jersey Island life then and now - having been there I can really identify with the book and almost feel it's happening as I read - creates a want to keep on reading until the end of book.

Format: Paperback
Higgins is easily my favorite author, he may not be the most talented or refined writer in the world but when he is on form he is easily the best of the action/boys own adventure, with intricate plots and action dripping from every page he really knows his subject matter. But what really sets him apart from many of his fellow authors is his ability to weave fact into fiction, leaving the reader wondering if his story was ever reality. Higgins first successfully used this formula in The Eagle Has Landed and carried on developing it over the next decade or so, for those unfamiliar, it involves a modern reporter/historian digging into missions of the second world war that have been buried for decades, only to find that the truth was much stranger than they ever could have imagined.

What is it about?
It is quite difficult to write about the plot without spoiling any of the twists throughout the novel, but if I had to sum it up it would be this: Britain is on the threshold of the D Day landings, a select group of officers have been briefed on the invasion plans, however when one of these (Colonel Hugh Kelso) is injured over the English Channel and washed up in Jersey all plans could be destroyed if the Nazis manage to get their hands on him. In order to ensure this doesn’t happen the British send in Harry Martineau accompanied with Sarah Drayton to either rescue or silence Kelso. Meanwhile on the other side of the channel the Desert Fox (Rommel) has his own agenda to sway the progression of the war, part of which involves a visit to Jersey. With deception and subterfuge on both sides, will either complete their mission or will the missions be destroyed unknowingly by the others enemy?

I hadn't read a Jack Higgins book for ages but couldn't remember why, so when I read a customer review of this extoling its virtues, I thought I should give him another try.
Mistake.
If you've read The Eagle Has Landed, don't bother with this - it's basically a regurgitation.
Essentially the same story with more or less the same characters - behind enemy lines, in enemy uniform, a letter from Himmler demanding for the bearer unfettered access and co-operation, a woman who falls in love at first sight, the old IRA man (we even have a reprise of the 'holy trinity' fight in 'the Eagle....') and an actor impersonating a person of high rank. All this, combined with the most implausible of implausible dialogue left me speed reading to get to the end (I can't NOT finish a book - even one this poor!). Extremely disappointed, I shan't be investing in Mr Higgins again.
