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.

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.

I have just finished reading this book. It is presumably based on some real facts. Ie The killing of the USA troops in the practice for D day asaults etc. & a lot of the countryside in jersey. I am assuming the main stories of the people involved are fiction. It will still keep you guessing with a few twists to keep the story going. Worth a read. Johnh.

This book is a good old fashioned world war II yarn, full of heroism, daring do and good guys verus bad guys.

The kind of book that is perfect for holidays and long journeys, doesn't require too much thought or concentration, but that said it is an enjoyable read.

The plot seems familiar and I'm not sure whether I've read it before or seen a film like it, however I enjoyed it and it certainly wouldn't put me off reading more stuff by this author.

very disappointing for a jack higgins. A little far fetched in the story line and not gripping like his usual stuff. Off to charity if in paperback form but deleted from my kindle. He has written much better
